Giving through The Foundation
Through our fundraising efforts, we can enhance the quality of healthcare in our community by influencing both the quality and the timing of projects. The Foundation, along with FGH, identifies those funding opportunities/priorities that have the greatest impact on improving patients’ quality of care. When funds are entrusted to the Foundation, we manage the investment and distribution of these funds and ensure full accountability back to the donor through the best stewardship practices.
What Can I Give to?
The Forrest General Healthcare Foundation has many projects accepting donations, and we always accept general funds. Here are some of our current projects.
The Healing Garde at Forrest General’s Cancer Center will offer patients, loved ones and visitors a quiet, outdoor space away from treatment areas.
The “Let’s Connect” campaign will raise funds for charging stations, a new and improved guest WiFi system, an internet cafe and new outdoor walking spaces for patients and employees.
The Pine Grove Spiritual Grounds project will provide sculptures, a chapel, a labyrinth, a fire circle and a bell tower to the campus of Pine Grove.
