Foundation at WMMC

Foundation

The Western Missouri Medical Center Foundation promotes community awareness and a philanthropic culture to support the WMMC mission to provide high-quality healthcare services that improve the wellness of our greater community. Putting patients first isn’t something we say, it is proven in everything we do.

Our work ensures the availability of modern facilities and the most advanced cutting edge technology right here at home, without the need to travel for care. It is through generous gifts of all sizes that help the WMMC Foundation continue its mission and provide for the well-being of our community.

Background

The WMMC Foundation was established in 1984. In 2015 the WMMC Foundation began a reinvigoration process. In addition to adding Board members, part of the seven committees were formed, currently comprised of more than 70 community leaders. Each committee is charged with answering the call to meet the growing health care needs of those we serve – our families, our friends and our neighbors. This reorganization will sharpen our focus in the specific areas of philanthropy and donor stewardship.

How Your Gifts Help

Gifts touch every area of our medical center. They help attract the most talented physicians, fund facility expansions and ensure you benefit from the best equipment and technology. When you make a gift, you have the ability to put it to work in areas that matter most to you. Most donors prefer not to designate their gift and trust the Foundation Board of Directors will apply it to the area of greatest need.

Make a Gift

All checks, securities, deeds, bequests and other legal documents should be made payable or transferable to Western Missouri Medical Center Foundation.

WAYS TO GIVE HOW TO DONATE MEET THE BOARD

Pillar Society

Recognizes major gifts from businesses and individuals of $5,000 – $25,000 or more. As a member of this distinguished group of community pillars, you can help to continue the tradition of local health care excellence that began in our community over 200 years ago. Your gift will profoundly impact the quality of care by preserving and improving local health care facilities and services.

Legacy Circle

Recognizes those individuals who have remembered the Western Missouri Medical Center Foundation in their wills or estate plans. These types of deferred gifts establish your legacy today and ensure that future generations will benefit from your generosity.

Health Investment Partners

Perennial Circle

C.A.R.E.givers Club

Recognizes the employees of WMMC who give a minimum annual gift of $25 ($1 per pay period) or more. The C.A.R.E.givers Committee is a volunteer group of WMMC employees who oversee the C.A.R.E. Program. They work to generate funds for special projects, which they determine through feedback from their co-workers. Those special projects might benefit our employees, our patients, our visitors and/or our facilities.

Grateful Patient

So often, WMMC receives sincere thanks from patients who appreciate the care they received. But some express interest in showing their gratitude in a more lasting way, which prompted the WMMC Foundation to develop the Grateful Patient Program, a branch of the Foundation that allows patients to give a monetary gift in honor of their caregiver.

Make A Gift

All checks, securities, deeds, bequests and other legal documents should be made payable or transferable to Western Missouri Medical Center Foundation. The WMMC Foundation is certified as a 509(a)(3) organization. Gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
