The mission of the Memorial Hospital Development Council is to build and strengthen relationships within our community and to cultivate continued support for future growth. Founded in 2000, the Council is a network of residents and business leaders who represent the partnership between the community and the hospital. The diverse experience and expertise of these individuals make them a valuable resource to Memorial Hospital and Union County.
The Development Council mission begins with our employees, medical staff, and retirees and extends to those who donate their time and energy through the Auxiliary, Development Council, Board of Trustees, and volunteer staff. Ultimately, our mission reaches the patients—the people of the larger community we stand ready to serve.
Beyond raising financial support for Memorial Hospital, the Development Council actively promotes a healthy community through healthcare education, community involvement, and service programs. Basically, the Council is a working link between the hospital and the people of Union County. There are six committees of influential community volunteers along with a hospital committee representing the employees of Memorial Hospital and the Gables.
Development Council Committees
The Major Gifts Committee establishes, maintains, and strengthens relationships with an elite group of individuals and businesses capable of contributing $25,000 or more to fund the development of Memorial Hospital.
The Special Prospects Committee forms the same links with individuals capable of contributing $10,000 or more to the Development Fund. Donors become members of the Diamond Society with special opportunities to network and attend members-only sneak-preview events.
The Planned Gifts Committee provides educational materials and programs to make the community aware of planned giving options and what the concept of planned giving means to the future of Memorial Hospital.
The Business Relations Committee fortifies the hospital's connection with the business sector. The committee arranges educational programs and health screenings throughout the year to support our mission to be the community's link to quality healthcare.
The Annual Support Committee is charged with increasing the overall number of donors to Memorial Hospital. It is the organizing arm for the Medallion Club ($100 per year or more of giving), our Memorial and Honorary Gifts program, and Partners in Progress (PIP), our employee donation program.
The Community Relations Committee organizes and conducts programs and educational events for the benefit of the community at large. Through events like women's and men's health programs, this group of volunteers continues as a vital educational arm of Memorial Hospital.
