Community Benefit 101- The Nuts and Bolts of Planning and Reporting Community Benefit

Oct. 2-3, 2018 
Chase Park Plaza Hotel 
St. Louis 


The Catholic Health Association, the leader in the community benefit field for more than 25 years, offers a one-and-a-half day seminar for new community benefit professionals that covers the basics of community benefit programming.

Taught by experienced community benefit leaders, this program, Oct. 2-3, in St. Louis, presents a practical framework for assessing community needs and planning, evaluating and reporting on community benefit programs.

While it is designed for new community benefit professionals, staff in finance, strategic planning and compliance should consider attending to learn how new federal requirements for tax-exempt hospitals around community health needs assessment, planning and financial assistance/billing and collections could impact how they support their organization's community benefit efforts.

Even those who have been working in community benefit should consider attending. Veteran community benefit staff have shared that it is a good refresher course to update them on current practices, inspire future activities and connect with others in nonprofit health care doing this work.

At this event, participants will learn:

  • How community benefit demonstrates the organizational mission
  • The latest news on tax exemption/community benefit issues at the federal and state levels
  • Steps for developing and evaluating community benefit programs
  • Policies needed to support community benefit programs
  • What counts and doesn't count as community benefit
  • Community benefit accounting principles
  • How to tell the community benefit story
  • How to get started
