Tree of Life – Help Us Light the Way

When you give to support FMDH Foundation trusts or endowments, your gift is preserved in perpetuity ensuring that it will thrive and continue to grow, impacting the lives of future generations.

Your original gift is invested and only the interest and dividends are used to support the Foundation’s giving. These choices include:
  • General Endowment: These funds allow the Foundation to purchase much-needed medical equipment for FMDH and other community organizations. We have purchased EKG machines for FMDH, bladder scanner for Valley View, Game Ready Systems for Hinsdale and GHS, and exercise equipment for Nashua Senior Center. Funds are invested and only the interest and dividends are used to purchase medical projects for FMDH and other community organizations. Visit our home page to check out what was gifted in 2023!
  • Markle’s Ambulance Fund: This trust helps support ambulance services in Glasgow, Hinsdale, Ophiem, and Lustre and was set up in 1989 in memory of Tom & Florence Markle. This fund started with $20,000 and is now over $220,000.
  • Scholarships Fund: The Foundation gives out scholarships to second-year college students who have graduated from a Valley County high school. These funds have been set up in memory of loved ones that want to help local area students pursue their medical dreams. Many of the memorials have been made by families of employees that believe in the future of FMDH. Visit our home page to see our 2023 scholarship recipients!
  • Mammography Fund: This fund was established to help purchase a 3-D digital mammography machine in 2012. It was started in 2010, when the Foundation pledged to help the Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital raise the funds necessary to purchase a Hologic digital tomography machine. This new technology allows the FMDH Radiologist to view breasts in a 3-D image, thereby allowing improved identification of potentially cancerous areas. We reached our goal at the end of 2012 and the digital machine is now serving FMDH patients. We will continue to have this fund to help with future expenses and make sure our patients receive top of the line care.
