Health System Foundation Honors Donors at Philanthropy Luncheon

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Nov. 21, 2008— Members of the Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation honored their Friends of the Foundation during a National Philanthropy Day® luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Brunswick Campus. Last year, local communities gave more than 1,500 gifts to the Foundation. The Foundation’s Friends of the Foundation program is comprised of individuals and couples who make a gift or a pledge of at least $5,000 for the support of the not-for-profit Health System.

According to Katherine Thurber, the Foundation’s director of development, gifts from people in the community are crucial for the Health System’s continued success and growth. “The Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation develops resources which support the Health System, encourages charitable giving to enhance patient programs and services, and assists the residents of our area with access to the medical care they deserve,” Thurber says. “Every day their generosity is transformed into new equipment, programs, and services. This support is invaluable to the Health System’s mission to offer the highest quality health care for individuals and families in southeast Georgia.”
