Gove County Medical Center Endowment Foundation


Gove County Healthcare Endowment Foundation (GCHEF) is a separate 501c3 non-profit entity organized in 1989 to be the fundraising organization bringing in new healthcare related services and projects relevant to improving healthcare services for Gove County residents as well as the surrounding county residents.


GCHEF has 10-13 appointed Trustees and an Executive Director. Through their direction, projects for improving healthcare services are addressed and prioritized.


GCHEF has been very instrumental in bringing in approximately $1.9 million in new healthcare related services to Gove County Medical Center and the LTC through the Kansas Community Service 70% Tax Credit Grant Program.


The Foundation does not receive any funding from taxes, and solicits donations, contributions, and grants through its fund-raising program.


The Foundation has a Financial Aid Program which assists medical students with part of their education. In exchange, if they are hired in their medical profession of services returning to the community practicing in that needed field, loan forgiveness is allowed with certain criteria required. The Financial Aid Program is subject to funding available.




Your gifts made in memory create a legacy for loved ones who have passed away, while gifts made In Honor are the perfect way to celebrate special occasions that happen in your loved ones’ lives, such as birthdays, anniversaries, and births. Donations can be directed where most needed, or designated to specific areas of patient care.
