You Decide Where Your Donation Goes

Unrestricted funds are given to the foundation to be used for the greatest areas of need. However, if you would like to make a donation to a specific foundation cause or fund, see the list below for some giving opportunities.

Equipment Fund

Contributions to this fund are used to purchase vital medical equipment needed at the medical center and its outreach facilities. The medical center annually invests an average of $1.5 million to upgrade and replace equipment, and to purchase new technology. This fund helps to offset some of those costs.

Building Fund

Contributions to the building are applied toward necessary medical center construction, expansion and remodeling.

Carol Purvis Education Fund

This fund was created in honor of former Mile Bluff Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, Carol Purvis. It provides incentives to Mile Bluff employees who are considering advancing their career in healthcare, and who are committed to Mile Bluff and serving the community.

Nurses Helping Nurses

This program was established after Mile Bluff's nursing staff expressed interest in helping other nurses continue their education. The program provides scholarships and other assistance to those who have an associate's degree in nursing, and would like to obtain a bachelor's degree or higher.

The Mile Bluff Healing Gardens

All gardens, like life and recovery, are a work in progress. Mile Bluff has two healing gardens, one by the hospital lobby and another by the surgery department. Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation has a vision for an even brighter future for the healing gardens, and has plans to enhance the beauty of these spaces. Learn more about that vision here.
