/ About Us / Support Our Mission

Berks Community Health Center (BCHC) is a registered 501 (c)(3) organization that provides high quality healthcare to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.  Your donations help us to continue to deliver healthcare to the underserved in our community.  Thank you  for helping us grow a healthier Berks County!


Why Support Us?

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) we receive support from the government. We are also able to bill the insurance companies of our patients who have insurance. After accounting for governmental support and insurance, there is still a large gap to fill to enable us to operate at a high level. Philanthropic giving, as our third source of funding, fills that gap and is essential for our mission. The donations we receive from individuals, businesses, and foundations goes directly to serving our patients. These donations give us the ability to provide exceptional, comprehensive, patient-centered care in Berks County.

To learn more about our patients, read our 2021 Impact Statement.

Every dollar you give makes a tangible impact in the life of a person in Berks County.

Our care for patients does not stop with their physical health. We recognize a variety of social determinants contribute to the health of an individual – diet, transportation, housing, and the community they call home. Our patients come into our facilities with many needs. We desire to enable our patients to leave our sites with items they need. Click here to see the items we are looking for.
