Riverview Health Foundation and its Board of Directors recently presented Riverview Health with a check for $520,000 to support the purchase of a new large-bore MRI machine, Infusion Center expansion and renovation, and several other projects. Since Riverview Health Foundation was founded, the total amount of gifts exceeds $12,500,000.
“2016 has been a wonderful year of celebrating the 40th anniversary of Riverview Health Foundation. In addition to raising funds from our generous donors, we held several events throughout the year, including our Women of Vision luncheon, Heartfelt Thanks Golf Outing and the Fire & Ice Gala in September that helped us surpass $500,000 in our gift to Riverview Health,” said Megan Wiles, Riverview Health Foundation executive director. “We’re so grateful for our community members and generous donors who have helped improve local healthcare services at Riverview Health for the past 40 years.”
Members of the community also joined in on the celebration by making a gift of $40 (or in increments of $40) to Riverview Health Foundation throughout the year. To make a gift, visit riverview.org/donate.
