Providing primary medical care, medical specialty referrals, dental and pharmaceutical services to those who can’t afford healthcare or insurance costs about $1.4 million per year in operating monies. The value of the services provided by our volunteer doctors and dentists and medications donated by drug companies totals more than $21 million per year! So, you see, Good News Clinics realizes a dramatic bang for each dollar invested. Several years ago, the Good News Clinics board of directors adopted a strategic plan to prepare the organization for successful future operations. One of the signature goals of this planning process was the Bridge to the Future Endowment Campaign. The idea was to begin to build an endowment, the corpus of which would be maintained to earn operating funds for the clinics. We challenged ourselves with raising $5 million over five years.
Our goal is to reach the $5 million threshold, and that’s where you come in. We have raised over $3.85 million and hope you will help us reach our goal. As Sam Poole was fond of saying,
“It’s terrible to be sick, but a travesty to be sick and not be able to see a doctor!”
Thank you for your help, as we strive to insure that everyone in Hall County has access to the medical expertise they need.
