Challenge Grant

An anonymous donor has pledged $250,000 as a CHALLENGE GRANT to increase participation in this year's Power of Community Benefit. The donor will match 1:1 all new or increased gifts or sponsorships. The challenge grant will fund the renovation of our Intensive Care Unit - from new beds and lighting to a more comfortable family waiting room. Please help us meet the challenge goal this year!


Proceeds from this year’s Benefit will fund initiatives to address social determinants of health in our community, such as nutrition, transportation, and housing that influence 60–80 % of a person’s overall health and wellness.
