President & CEO

Mr. Thomas G. Bognanno

BIO

Thomas G. Bognanno has been the President and CEO of Community Health Charities since January 2006. Prior to that, Tom had a distinguished 20-year career with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), starting as Executive Director for the former ADA New Mexico and Missouri affiliates and Executive Vice President for the Texas affiliate. He was promoted to Special Assistant to the CEO in 1998 before moving into the role of Chief Field Officer in 2003. Prior to his years with ADA, he spent six years with the American Cancer Society.

Among his key accomplishments in his role as Chief Field Officer, Tom was instrumental in revitalizing the community level infrastructure of ADA and in bringing volunteer and staff development back as a priority for the organization. He was also one of the chief architects of the Everyday Choices for a Healthier Life partnership between the ADA, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

At Community Health Charities, Tom has been a catalyst for creating a new direction for the organization's nearly 2,000 member charities nationwide and its network of 50 market locations. Through the initial introduction of the Health Matters at Work portal in 2006, Community Health Charities has evolved into a full-service employee engagement delivery model under Tom's leadership. This model focuses on strengthening our community presence, improving brand awareness and in accessing, opening and servicing new workplace giving campaigns. Tom has also provided the leadership and vision that resulted in the consolidation of Community Health Charities into one corporate entity with the merger of the 36 separate affiliate associations in 2014. Currently, he is leading the effort to re-align Community Health Charities' strategic direction to optimize this expanded business model with a broader array of health and employee engagement products. The goal is to create strategic capability across all functions of Community Health Charities that will accelerate the ability to generate income for our member charities.

Residing in northern Virginia, Tom and his wife, Suzan, have been married for 34 years and raised three children.

STATEMENT FROM THE President & CEO

"Community Health Charities improves the lives of people affected by health challenges by uniting caring donors in the workplace with the nation's most trusted health charities. With more than 133 million Americans suffering from at least one-term health condition, the need for programs, services, research and support from these charities is greater than ever before.

As experts in the areas of workplace giving and employee engagement for nearly 60 years, Community Health Charities creates partnerships between our member charities and corporate partners who want their employees to have the opportunity to support the health causes that impact their family and their community. Every year, Community Health Charities connects more than 1,600 businesses and 17 million employees to their favorite health charities.

The nearly 2,000 health charities in our network represent the very best our nation has to offer. Community Health Charities fully vets each participating charity to ensure maximum impact and is dedicated to the highest ethical standards, earning the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance seal and complying with the National Health Council's Standards of Excellence. Community Health Charities continues to be one of the nation's most cost-effective organizations, keeping national overhead costs at just 8 percent. Employees and donors can give with confidence, knowing that their contributions will make a difference in the lives of others.

In addition to traditional workplace programs, our High Impact Causes give employees the opportunity to support the specific health causes they care about most. Each High Impact Cause is designed by the experts at Community Health Charities to bring together some of the most trusted health charities addressing a variety of aspects of a single health issue, allowing for a systems approach to tackling these challenges. From children's health to finding cures for the diseases that impact the most Americans, our High Impact Causes call attention to some of our nation's most critical health issues.

There is no silver bullet to address all of the health issues facing our country, but working together we can make a tremendous impact on the health of our families and our communities. Over the past five years, Community Health Charities has raised more than $400 million to support the missions of the nearly 2,000 health charities in our network. Please join us in our efforts to improve lives and make our nation's health the highest priority.
