Why Give

You can help our not-for-profit healthcare system improve the health and quality of life for the communities we serve, one person at a time.

Your giving transforms and provides care

Your gifts provide hope, impact the health of people in our local communities and transform care for central Virginia. Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Through donor support, we can provide excellent care locally, regardless of patients’ ability to pay. 

Thank you for providing hope and healing for individuals and families in our communities! 

You can mail a gift to Centra Foundation, 1920 Atherholt Rd, Lynchburg, VA 24501.

“I give because there are so many members of our community who have difficulty accessing healthcare services because of lack of resources. Gifts to the Centra Foundation help to ensure that when we are at our most vulnerable state, the healthcare safety net is alive and well."
