Grateful patient leaves bequest of $2.3 million to Kenmore Mercy Hospital
During this season of giving, it is often the gifts we least expect that can have the most meaning.
The Kenmore Mercy Foundation received a special gift this Christmas from a grateful patient who has left a lasting legacy to Kenmore Mercy Hospital for years to come. The local resident, who wished to remain anonymous, left a $2.3 million bequest to benefit the Hospital. It is the largest gift from an individual donor in the hospital’s 64-year history.
Since 1980, the Kenmore Mercy Hospital Foundation has provided key financial support to Kenmore Mercy Hospital through an extensive development program that encourages public and private philanthropic support. We have been able to raise millions of dollars since our fundraising activities.
There are a variety of ways to show your support for Kenmore Mercy. We offer special events that include a Golf and Wine Tournament and the “Tribute to Angels” event featuring the Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. We also accept contributions through memorials, bequests, planned giving opportunities, and corporate and community support from local clubs, businesses and organizations. The Kenmore Mercy Hospital Auxiliary is a key partner in our fundraising endeavors and your support of their events and activities benefits the hospital.
