We believe that stronger leaders create stronger organizations and through them, healthier communities are realized.

For Middle Tennessee Nonprofits

Nonprofits are encouraged to have an HCA Healthcare-affiliated board member, which are viewed as essential to the relationship between a nonprofit and the HCA Healthcare Foundation. HCA Healthcare colleagues can be found in many networks and on many volunteer sites. We encourage nonprofits to think about those HCA Healthcare colleagues around you who align with your mission as donors or volunteers who could be elevated to your board. Nonprofits are also welcome to promote their board opportunities to HCA Healthcare colleagues. This process begins with the submission of information about the organization and its specific board needs. Approved requests are then posted on an HCA Healthcare internal site that is regularly promoted to colleagues looking for leadership opportunities with Middle Tennessee nonprofits. While board matches do occur because of these postings, a placement cannot be guaranteed.

Request to share board membership opportunity


To develop stronger nonprofit leaders, the HCA Healthcare Foundation trains and supports HCA Healthcare-affiliated colleagues to serve on nonprofit boards of directors.

OnBoard Training

Each year, the HCA Healthcare Foundation provides Nashville-based colleagues with the opportunity to improve their skills through OnBoard Training. Through OnBoard Training, colleagues learn about board roles and responsibilities, strategic planning, financials, and fundraising in order to be an effective and positive nonprofit board member.
