Every dollar you give goes to the purpose you designate. For example, if you give $1,000 to go towards the purchase of a baby incubator, the FULL gift is used that way. It would take $20,000 of billed services for the hospital to provide that same $1,000 from operations.
No donated dollars are used to cover fundraising costs. Hospital operations, not by donated dollars, pay for fundraising costs. Nonetheless, we carefully manage our costs and keep track of cost to raise a dollar.
Through fundraising for direct needs, as well as granting
from endowment funds, the foundation has provided between
$2 million - $15 million back to the health care system every year.
Your generosity - making a difference for the people of northern Michigan.
