Tree of Life – Help us light the way

Currently the Foundation has four funds to give cash donations, memorials, honorariums, etc. 
  • General Endowment: funds are invested and only the interest and dividends are used to purchase medical projects for FMDH and other community organizations.
  • Markle’s Ambulance Fund: helps support ambulance services in Glasgow, Hinsdale, Ophiem, & Lustre.
  • Scholarships Fund: to help the Foundation give out scholarships to second-year college students studying in a medical field who have graduated from the area.
  • Mammography Fund: established to help purchase a 3-D digital mammography machine in 2012. Donations kept coming in after the purchase, so this fund is still available for future needs.
Are gifts to the Foundation tax deductible?

Yes!  Contributions to the FMDH Foundation are tax deductible because the foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Foundation staff will ensure that you receive proper receipts to use with your tax records as well as a year-end statement.
