In the Spirit of Giving
Established in 1975, the UnityPoint Health - Methodist Foundation has generated assets of more than $18 million to be used in support of services to patients and families at Methodist Medical Center, and to advance community wellness and health education.
Generous contributors to the Foundation have made possible such things as Hospice Services, Kourage Kids bereavement camp, College of Nursing Scholarship funds and program development, electronic connectivity for the in-school health program, Pastoral Care training and services, renovation of the hospital chapel, medical research programs, and numerous capital equipment upgrades.
The Foundation also is the beneficiary of the volunteer service provided by the Service League of Methodist Medical Center. The Service League volunteers run the hospital Gift Shop and Flower Shop, hold an annual Gift Show, and conduct several special sales throughout the year that generate proceeds for the hospital. The Service League has funded the mobile mammography unit, the Learning Center for the College of Nursing, new warmers for the nursery, patient recliners, and many other hospital needs that could not have been supported without their help. Over their history, the Service League has raised more than $5 million for the hospital
