Community Health Network Foundation has reached an important milestone in its $1 million fundraising campaign to support the Next Evolution of Community Hospital South. Foundation officials have announced more than $636,000 has been raised to fund capital improvements that will deliver exceptional experiences for patients and families, as well as physicians and all employees.
To date, 122 donors have contributed gifts of many sizes to the campaign. However, a major gift of $160,450 made by 28 Community Heart and Vascular Physicians pushed the total over the half-way mark. That gift was made possible by the philanthropic leadership of Community Heart and Vascular President Ramu Yeleti, M.D.
Barbara Coury, Community Health Network Foundation vice president of development, is leading the fundraising for the capital campaign and is excited to see so many network leaders engage in the philanthropic process.
“I am delighted with the response we have received from our leadership to not only make their own gift to the campaign, but to also help us identify additional natural partners as we continue to raise funds for this and other opportunities across the network and central Indiana,” Coury said.
Coury also highlighted the success of a fundraising campaign led by the Sprit of South employee council, which has organized a series of fun events and sales that will raise money and increase employee donations for the capital campaign.
Patients, corporations, local supporters and vendors participating in the construction of the expanded facility have also contributed to the campaign. Substantial gifts will be celebrated with naming opportunities, including the new the Leach and Russell Board Room.
