Kearney County Medical Foundation"To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kearney County Medical Foundation
“We believe that it is important for our citizens to provide for and retain ownership of the healthcare services, which are delivered in this community, thus ensuring the future availability of affordable quality healthcare services.”
Simply put, a hospital foundation raises money and community awareness for a hospital or medical center. For a non-profit organization like Kearney County Health Services, foundations are critical to the success of the organization. Hospital foundations financially hold up hospitals and in our case the hospital, medical clinic, assisted living, and long term care facilities.
Each summer, the Kearney County Medical Foundation holds a golf tournament as its major fundraising charitable drive. Charitable gifts or donations given to KCMF throughout the year are additional funds that are invested in the facility for upgrading the quality of the equipment and services that KCHS is able to provide to the community.
Making a donation to the Kearney County Medical Foundation is an investment in you and your community’s health care future. Gift giving vehicles for donors include:
- Tribute Gifts such as Memorials or In Honor Gifts
