Since our inception in 1988, the Boone County Health Center Foundation’s purpose has been “To seek, receive and administer donations and gifts which support health care offered to the service area by the Boone County Health Center and medical clinics”. Our role as beneficiary to the Health Center has grown over the years and we now have five members that serve as ambassadors for their local communities.
The Boone County Health Center and Foundation continue to benefit from the generosity and support of so many in our service area. Community support along with quality, caring employees and providers make it possible to maintain outstanding healthcare service close to home for many years to come and for that we Thank You!
Give back in a way that benefits both you and patients at Boone County Health Center not only for decades but for centuries to come, with the brand-new Boone County Health Center Foundation endowment.
What is an endowment? This endowment is a core pool of money which is invested. A portion of the income earned by the endowment is then used to fund vital needs at Boone County Health Center.
Where will my money go? Contributions to the endowment will add to the principal and remain intact forever. The intention is that, through the years, this money will not be touched but will grow with additional contributions.
Why start an endowment fund now? The cost of providing health care is on a steep incline. The payout from the endowment will offer a reliable source of funding Boone County Health Center can count on as upgrades are needed well into the future.
What is the minimum amount I can donate to the endowment? Endowments are not just for big donors. Any amount, large or small, can be earmarked towards the endowment. Through your contribution, you can help Boone County Health Center care for your family and friends for generations to come.
