Dosher Foundation Announces $2M Fundraising Program

By Ken Little, posted Dec 1, 2017
The Dosher Memorial Hospital Foundation recently kicked off a major gifts campaign by recognizing more than 50 donors who already have donated a total of $1.5 million.
 
Organizers call the program, “Helping Hands for a Healthy Community,” according to a hospital news release.
 
The fundraising goal is $2 million. “Campaign committee members have been identifying and contacting potential donors for the past year, and the amount announced today is the result of their hard work,” Foundation board chair Barbara Boland said in the release.
 
“Funds raised through our ‘Helping Hands’ campaign will assist the hospital with equipment, program and service needs. Our community has a tremendous legacy of giving which started in 1928 that led to the opening of our hospital in 1930. It’s alive and well today, and we look forward to receiving many more donations from the public over the next year,” Foundation President Lynda Stanley said in the news release.
 
Since formation of the Foundation in 2010 and prior to this campaign, $800,000 had been gifted to the Foundation for health and medical service expansions, and equipment at the hospital. The new major gifts campaign more than doubles that amount, the news release stated.
