IVCH Foundation

Mission Statement: The IVCH Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established to provide financial support for Illinois Valley Community Hospital and its related health services.

IVCH Foundation puts critical funds where they’re needed most. By helping Illinois Valley Community Hospital plant the seeds that keep health care in our community growing and thriving, we’re making sure your gifts matter.

Among others, the IVCH Foundation:

  • Provides funds that let the hospital purchase advanced medical equipment it otherwise might not be able to afford.
  • Reimburses IVCH for some of the hundreds of thousands of dollars of uncompensated medical care the hospital delivers each year.

Community comes together in the IVCH Foundation, with a proud tradition of advancing care close to home.

IVCH Foundation Tax Status

Illinois Valley Community Hospital recently learned that the federal tax-exempt status of the hospital, our foundation and parent company, IV Healthcorp, Inc. (including the Hygienic Institute and Auxiliary), were revoked by the Internal Revenue Service.

On December 31, we submitted the appropriate forms to the IRS to apply for reinstatement of the entities’ tax-exempt status, as well as retroactive reinstatement for the period of time it was revoked. We are confident our tax-exempt status will be reinstated soon.

It is our hope that donations made to the IVCH Foundation will not be impacted as we have applied to the IRS for our tax-exempt status to be retroactively reinstated.

We will reach out to donors personally to share the latest information with them as it becomes available. 

Please contact the IVCH Foundation office at 815.780.3544 with any questions about your past or recent donations. You can also read a letter from the IVCH CEO, Tommy Hobbs, for the latest update on the tax-exempt status of IVCH, the IVCH Foundation and IV Healthcorp, Inc.
