Making a Difference

CHG introduces the Making a Difference Foundation

Supporting charities that align with our values is an important part of CHG’s purpose of making a difference in the lives of those we serve — our people, our providers, our clients, and our communities. To help accomplish this, CHG created the Making a Difference Foundation.

The foundation offers two types of grants — local and strategic.

Local grants are designed to support causes and nonprofit organizations that CHG’s employees are passionate about and actively involved in.  These grants are intended to be inclusive and cover a wide variety of causes like health, education, food, shelter, safety, water, animals, arts, environment, or workplace culture.

Strategic grants are designed to make a meaningful impact in underserved communities by providing grants that support the delivery of healthcare and healthcare education on a local, national, and international level.

Recently, the foundation issued a grant that gave three CompHealth physicians the opportunity to join CHG’s six Difference Maker Award winners on a humanitarian trip to Kenya. While there, the physicians provided much-needed healthcare to the local villagers.

  • Liz,

    I am with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah( BBBSU) we were asked by a CHG employee in Utah if we are partnered with you and if they could get approved volunteer time off to work as a mentor in our program . So I wanted to check with you to see if we have a partner status with you and if not to see how we can can become a potential partner. Our website is and you can email me at if you wanted to contact me directly. I hope that you have a great day.
