Nonprofit Canvas Health Recognizes University’s Generosity

Globe University-Woodbury will be recognized by Canvas Health as a Living Heritage Tree donor for the generous contributions the campus has made throughout the years. The Living Heritage Tree is a beautiful sculpture in the main entrance of the Canvas Health building. An engraved copper leaf with Globe University-Woodbury’s name on it will be placed on the tree.

In the past, the campus has sponsored local golf tournaments for Canvas Health. The contributions our campus has made go toward the organization’s mission to help children, adolescents, adults and families who struggle with mental health, chemical health, and domestic and sexual abuse.

Creating partnerships, such as with Globe University, are crucial to the success of Canvas Health’s work, which requires the involvement and generosity of so many in the community. Contributions of time, talent or treasure are invaluable to the organization, according to Canvas Health.
