Kearney County Medical Fund"To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kearney County Medical Fund
“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 medical fund committee raises money and community awareness for a hospital or medical center. For a non-profit organization like Kearney County Health Services, medical fund committees are critical to the success of the organization. Hospital medical fund committees financially hold up hospitals and in our case the hospital and medical clinic.
Each summer, the Kearney County Medical Fund Committee holds a golf tournament as its major fundraising charitable drive. Charitable gifts or donations given to KCMFC 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 Fund Committee 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
- Planned Giving
- Outright Gifts
- Memorial Brick
Categories established by KCMFC are as follows:
- Pioneers: $500–$999
- Scouts: $1000–$4999
