Thanks to a generous gift by F&M Trust, Fulton County Medical Center Foundation is able to launch a 70-day “Double Your Donation” campaign that will match any size gift up to $15,000 as part of the “70 for 70” campaign in in conjunction with FCMC’s 70th anniversary.
The “Double Your Donation” matching challenge gift begins Oct. 4 – the same day 70 years ago that FCMC opened its doors – and runs through Dec. 12. The “70 for 70” campaign goal is to raise $70,000 to support educational equipment and a new education room/suite. Ongoing training is critical for the clinical staff. All gifts designated for the” 70 for 70” project will be doubled. This means that a gift of $25 will be worth $50, a gift of $250 will be worth $500, and a gift of $5,000 will be worth $10,000 to ensure FCMC stays on the leading edge of person-centered care.
“At F&M Trust, we look for opportunities where our support will make a significant impact,” said Tim Henry, President and CEO of F&M Trust. “We are also strong believers in the power of working together. It is our hope that by providing matching dollars, we will inspire other organizations and individuals to give to the Fulton County Medical Center Foundation. Together, we can make a big difference. By giving to the FCMC Foundation, donors are making a very important investment in the community’s health.”
“The community responded to a similar campaign in 2017 when F&M Trust assisted with our expansion project,” said Mike Straley, Executive Director the FCMC Foundation. “This project is equally important to our clinical staff. It shows our commitment to the training and education that’s needed for top-line patient-centered care. The FCMC Foundation, through the goodwill of the community, is honored to fully fund this project.”
The educational equipment and the space needed for the project would be housed within the Medical Center with existing space being converted to a state-of-art clinical education suite.
“We feel that participating in the education of our future medical professionals is vital to fulfilling our Mission: to continually improve the health of our communities,” said Mike Makosky, FCMC President and CEO. “Fulton County Medical Center is committed to helping ensure our future caregivers receive the best training possible in a nurturing atmosphere.”
