Netcare Foundation

Who We Are

Incorporated in 1982, the Netcare Foundation is a 501(c)(3) fundraising organization that raises funds to benefit the programs, clients and staff of Netcare Access.

The Netcare Foundation has made recent significant contributions to Netcare such as the purchase of ROW ONE vehicles, staff recognition and appreciation, capital improvements to facilities, safety improvements to our patient units and continuing education opportunities for staff.

In addition to raising funds through individual donations and grants, the Foundation hosts two key fundraising events each year, which bring together sponsors, friends and supporters of Netcare.

Community Awards & Recognition Dinner

The fall fundraiser is an upscale evening with good music, a delicious sit-down dinner, silent auction, a mission moment and a celebration of Netcare Access’ supporters, advocates, first responders, community leaders and staff that have made an impact on the lives of the individual we serve in Franklin County.


Spring Swing Against Stigma

The Netcare Foundation invites you to join us at Topgolf Columbus for an indoor/outdoor golf experience unlike any other. Show off your swinging skills and mingle with other behavioral health advocates for a business after-hours fundraising event.
