Your Generosity Makes A Difference
by Jan Jennings, Director of Development
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Health For All Fund and our 2020 Rescue Fund Matching Gift program in 2021. We are pleased to say that over 130 donors stepped forward, enabling Mountain Family to meet our goal of $100,000 in matching funds from the 2020 Rescue Fund.
Over 130 donors contributed more than $53,000, whose gifts were either triple-matched or double-matched by the 2020 Rescue Fund. We also welcomed gifts fulfilling pledges from nearly 50 Founding Members. Our Founding Members have made pledges over three years, qualifying them as Founding Members of our Health For All Fund which was inaugurated last year. We were also pleased that individuals, foundations, and businesses contributed to this fund, including The Colorado Health Foundation, the Alpenglow Foundation, Alpine Bank, FirstBank, RA Nelson LLC, and more.
In addition to the essential integrated medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare that we provide at four hub sites in Basalt, Glenwood Springs, Rifle, and Edwards along with care at six school-based health centers, we have provided over 14,000 vaccines and booster shots to individuals and students. In the words of Karen, “A friend of mine said ‘Don’t cry when you get the shot.’ I almost cried when I got the appointment, as I was so relieved. Thank you also for taking care of so many people. The work you do taking care of low-income families and so many more allows our valley to prosper and thrive.”
