Chemical Bank recently presented a check in the amount of $15,000 to Memorial Healthcare’s Emergency Department. This donation fulfills – three years early – Chemical Bank’s commitment of $25,000 to Memorial Healthcare Foundation’s, “Going to a Higher Level campaign”.

The Memorial Healthcare Foundation was established in 1991 to encourage philanthropic involvement from the community. Today it continues to be committed to the local community and philanthropic giving through its many campaigns and events.

The Foundation plays a key role in providing the necessary funds to keep the Memorial Healthcare facilities, renovations, equipment, employee health education, community health education, and many other projects and special programs current.

The Memorial Healthcare Foundation relies on generous donations, and fundraisers to support the hospital’s health care needs.  All charitable gifts are fully tax deductible.  The majority of revenue generated comes from the many generous donors who choose to have their gifts support a current need or to have their gifts placed in a permanent endowment fund. Only the annual earnings from the endowment are spent, providing a permanent source of funding for the hospital.

The Foundation is fortunate to have many friends who give of their time and talent to help organize interesting, fun and successful fundraising events. These committees consist of the Annual Golf Benefit, the Annual Gala, Support the Foundation “Art Bra” Reception and the Annual Go Green! Go Blue! Event.

For more information about the Memorial Healthcare Foundation or to make a donation, please contact Barb Nagengast, Interim Executive Director, at (989) 729-4675.
