SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
The board of directors of Fulton County Medical Center Foundation met for its quarterly board meeting on Monday, November 16. Issues discussed included the year-end financial report, gifting and granting, image and public relations, campaigns and upcoming events, updates on the new patient services building, and new and renewing board member terms.
CFO Deborah Shughart reported the financials for both FCMC and FCMCF were good and the audits were clean. She reported that the auditing firm Eide Baily was surprised with the Foundation’s success in just its first year. The Foundation ended up with a $200,000 surplus, mainly from the gifts to the new patient services building project.
The FCMC Foundation Board is happy to announce it would like to collaborate with the Mc- Connellsburg Lions Club on their walking track wellness program. The board will be inviting the club to meet in the upcoming weeks to begin working on partnering to provide some type of support, be it financial or in-kind.
Director of Community Relations and Development Cheryl Brown reported on the current campaigns. The current campaigns include Continuing the Dream and the Jim Camp Campaign. She also announced the dinner auction on April 2010 will support the “ZOOM ZOOM” campaign to aid in the purchase of a much-needed van for longterm care.
