Support Our Endowments

Kathleen King Oral Health Endowment

The Oral Health Endowment was established in 2011 by Dr. Dennis and Linda Eguchi to increase access to oral health prevention and treatment services. In 2017, the Eguchi’s renamed the endowment in honor of the Community Health Trust’s founding CEO, Kathleen King. The Kathleen King Oral Health Endowment provides a lasting source of funding to address unmet needs for oral health education and care for all in the greater Pajaro Valley.

Phil Rather Endowment

The Phil Rather Endowment Fund was established in 2005 in memory of Community Health Trust champion Phil Rather, to help provide lasting funding for the Diabetes Health Center. For three decades, Phil Rather advocated for access to healthcare for our residents, especially those facing economic and social barriers. He championed the creation of the CHT’s Diabetes Health Center (DHC), which has filled a significant gap in diabetes prevention and self-management education services for the community. Earnings from the Phil Rather Endowment help support the Diabetes Health Center as it continues to provide and grow its services for those affected by diabetes, prediabetes, and other health conditions, through education and support.
