Giraffe Laugh Receives CHIF Grant From St. Luke’s

In January 2017 Giraffe Laugh receives $4,840 grant from St. Luke’s through their Community Health Improvement Fund (CHIF). The fund supports community health improvement activities, and Giraffe Laugh has exciting plans with the grant. The CHIF grant makes it possible for Giraffe Laugh children to participate in swim lessons, gymnastics and ballet at little or no cost, providing access for everyone regardless of income. Giraffe Laugh’s Executive Director Lori Fascilla says, “Our missions very much align. St. Luke’s is committed to improving the health of people in the communities, and at Giraffe Laugh, we believe a healthy foundation begins during childhood.”

About Giraffe Laugh: We are a non-profit organization, providing early childhood education and nurturing to over 200 Treasure Valley children daily by ensuring school readiness, empowering families and building strong futures.

About St. Luke’s: As the only Idaho-based, not-for-profit health system, St. Luke’s is dedicated to their mission “To improve the health of people in the communities we serve.” That means not only treating people when they are sick or hurt but helping them be as healthy as possible.
