Fall 2017

Bedford Community Health Foundation is committed to our community partners, the non-profit organizations that provide health care or health related services to residents of the Town and County of Bedford. We will continue to fund proven programs as well as fund exciting new initiatives.  The Foundation is able to give back because of its community-minded donors who want to make Bedford one of the healthiest communities in the state.
