Donors pledge to support healthcare programs

— Men and women who have contributed to nonprofit organizations in Northwest Colorado will be honored next week.

About 150 donors pledged to financially support agencies and programs in Routt, Moffat, Grand and Rio Blanco counties for three years.

The donors comprise the newly established Healthcare Foundation’s Founders’ Circle.

The Healthcare Foundation is celebrating its one-year anniversary.

The foundation took donors’ contributions and turned them into grants for several nonprofit organizations in 2002.

Donors pledged to give at least $500 every year until 2004. Some donors gave more than $500.

Their contributions totaled $28,300. Yampa Valley Medical Center matches Founders’ Circle donations up to $100,000.

A Founders’ Circle reception is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday at Yampa Valley Medical Center.

The reception is a time for organizations to thank benefactors for their support and describe how they have used their funding, said Bonnie Boylan of the Healthcare Foundation.

Grants ranged from $2,000 to $10,000. Some of the grant recipients include the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, Grand County Rural Health Network, Colorado West Regional Mental Health, Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition and Horizons.
