Donor-Restricted Endowment Fund
The Donor-Restricted Endowment Fund, also known as the Endowment Fund, is the fund the Foundation uses to give healthcare related grants to the community. Every year, 5% of the endowment is given away to support local healthcare needs. The Foundation has set a goal to grow the Endowment Fund to $10 million by the year 2025. Every year, organizations in the community request over $1 million in grants from the Foundation. We hope to be able to grant every one of them by growing our Endowment Fund.
Sidney Health Center Cancer Care Fund
This fund helps support Sidney Health Center Cancer Care.
