23% of area residents can’t afford the healthcare they need.

Mid-Rogue Foundation

In 2008, Mid Rogue Independent Physician Association (IPA) created Mid Rogue Foundation as an independent, private, non-profit entity charged with improving the access, affordability and quality of health services for underserved residents of southern Oregon and northern California.

The Foundation was formally established in 2009 and a seven-member Board of Directors oversees its operation. The foundation’s goals and objectives are presented on this site.

In the summer of 2011, the Foundation was approved as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity, which allows it to raise tax-deductible donor contributions.
