2020 Listening Tour
Foundation Listening Tour featured on local news
A local news station covered the CHEST Foundation’s final stop on the listening tour—Phoenix, Arizona. The area has been hit hard by COVID-19, with disadvantaged populations having higher infection and death rates. See how our work to promote health care access for all is helping shed light on these disparities.
What makes a foundation truly impactful? Some would argue that it’s the organization’s willingness to continually have uncomfortable conversations about the issues negatively impacting our society today – the issues that stem from years of silence and decades of systematic oppression.
The difficulty and awkwardness of these conversations lays in the fact that they revolve around race, and more often than not, health outcomes. These are the problems that affect our most deserving, underserved communities, and it’s clear that they can no longer be ignored. We need to start listening now.
The Year in Review: Our Impact Report is here!
Why do people continue to give to the Foundation? What are those funds used for, and how do they help drive our mission? These are the stories of our donors, our community grant winners and our patients. Learn how every dollar we collect makes a tangible impact on the communities and the people we serve.
