Thanks given to generous donors

We are writing to publicly recognize and say a heartfelt thank you to the groups and individuals

Dear Editor,

We are writing to publicly recognize and say a heartfelt thank you to the groups and individuals who make a difference in the communities we serve through their generous donations.

In the Central Zone, we’re fortunate to have fifteen Foundations and Trusts who are important partners of AHS. We are grateful for their support in enhancing healthcare services in the communities we serve.

We’re also incredibly grateful for the support we receive from Hospital Auxiliary groups, community service clubs, local companies and generous individuals who support, and initiate fundraising campaigns across the Zone. Each and every donation – monetary or otherwise – makes a positive impact on our patients, residents, clients and their families.

This month, we celebrate the shared commitment between AHS, Foundations, Auxiliaries and donors.

Over $7.7 million is raised yearly in our Zone, through our partner Foundations, Trusts and Auxiliaries. This generosity has a tremendous impact on health care and supports the work of staff, physicians and volunteers in providing the best care possible.

We could not provide the level of service we do without the support of Foundations, Trusts and Auxiliaries, and they couldn’t do it without their donors.

There are many ways to support these groups – as a volunteer, by participating in one of their fundraising events or with a charitable gift. If you already donate or volunteer your time, thank you. It all makes a difference, and your gift matters.

Please join us in thanking the partner Foundations, Trusts and Auxiliaries in your community, and of course their many donors.
