Hospitals are routinely called on to financially support community organizations, programs and activities that benefit the community and tie into services provided by the hospital. Typically, hospitals receive requests for funds far in excess of the available resources. It is essential, therefore, to have a process that helps in decision making for distribution of donations and sponsorships. And once funds have been given, it is important to track the use of the funds and the impact of the contribution. Join Coletta Barrett as she outlines the guidelines for community donations and sponsorships to qualify for community benefit. This webinar will share the process and tools used by Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center to manage the community donations and sponsorships program.

The Democracy Collaborative has introduced the third toolkit in its Hospitals Aligned for Healthy Communities series, developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and designed to help health systems use their hiring, purchasing, and investing power to improve the health and well-being of underserved communities and communities of color.

This third installment—Place-based Investing: Creating Sustainable Returns and Strong Communities—provides hospital and health system leaders with the tools they need to make their investment portfolios work to improve the health of the communities they serve. By helping create the equitable and inclusive opportunities these communities need to thrive, place-based investing can provide the resources health systems need to tackle the social and economic determinants of poor health outcomes.
