Dear Friends and Supporters,
Spring is a time for growth. At Jackson Health Foundation, this growth has unfolded in many marvelous ways. Through our website, you’ll see highlighted some of those great initiatives that are paving the way to a successful fiscal year. A great example was our recent Circle of Heroes 10th Anniversary Luncheon, in which we welcomed 20 new members in support of our IKF Wonderfund. The glamorous affair raised more than $175,000 and you can read about it by clicking here.
We are also in the midst of a robust Employee Giving Campaign which is reaching all of Jackson Health System employees, more than 10,000, and urges everyone to become a Jackson Angel and support our philanthropic mission. As Jackson’s fundraising arm, our work directly impacts the efforts made by the system at all of their facilities. All of the money raised by our Jackson Angels will help support major projects, such as building renovations and the development of new programs. We’ll be sharing more details on the success of this initiative when we wrap up the campaign in early May.
As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day in the upcoming weeks, I want to take this opportunity to honor each and every one of our female supporters. On behalf of Jackson Health Foundation, thank you for playing an important part in our lives, as your philanthropic support nurtures hope for all of the patients and families whose lives depend on Jackson Health System.
Thank you for helping us continue to make miracles happen!
Keith R. Tribble, President & CEO
