About the FoundationA Determined Spirit
We are excited to present more details to you about the FCMC Foundation. Your involvement with us can help so many people who need the essential healthcare services we provide. Please read on to discover how our foundation helps people living in the Fulton County, PA area and how your participation can help keep FCMC going as a vital part of this community. Join us and keep the philanthropic spirit alive!When a group of visionary women of the Green Hill Civic Club launched its first fundraising campaign - a "cake festival" on August 9, 1947, that generated $329.22 for the building of Fulton County Medical Center - they were counting on the entire community to make it a reality.
When J. Oram Wible, a former resident of Todd Township and then president of Union Electric Steel of Pittsburgh, made the first substantial gift in January of 1948, donating $5000 towards the creation of Fulton County Medical Center, he was banking on its future.
Today, that philanthropic spirit lives on because of you. Your contributions have supported Fulton County Medical Center programs in patient care, education, medical technology and capital projects, all of which have improved the quality of medical care that have improved and, in some cases, saved lives.
The FCMC Foundation offers:
- Professionalism: We support Fulton County Medical Center. Our staff members speak to the unique opportunities at FCMC, as well as the overall mission of the organization. We are available to meet you onsite at FCMC or in your home or place of business. All discussions are confidential.
- Privacy: Just as FCMC protects the privacy of patients, the Foundation Office honors the privacy of benefactors.
- Collegiality: We work closely with a benefactor's legal and financial advisors, as well as family members and others as appropriate. Our goal is to ensure that philanthropic plans meet the benefactor's best interests as well as FCMC's needs and priorities.
- Salaried/Hourly staff: Members of the Foundation Office have no commissions or profit-sharing plans based on the amount or type of gifts that are provided.
- Advocacy: Staff members of the FCMC Foundation serve as liaisons, connecting benefactors with FCMC leadership in patient care and education. We are grateful to you for your generous donation and your investment in the future of Fulton County Medical Center
