COVID-19 Community Match Challenge

As we continue to focus on keeping people safe and healthy through social distancing, we are making changes to our annual fundraising events.

Our loyal corporate partners have agreed to convert their event sponsorships to donations so that we can continue responding to immediate and emerging needs. In addition, 100% of our Foundation Board, Community Mission Board, Executive Team and Foundation Team have agreed to join those sponsors in creating a Community Challenge in response to COVID-19. 

Please join us in supporting the immediate and emerging healthcare needs of our community with a safe and socially distant gift today. All donations will stay local to serve our community’s needs.

These unrestricted donations allow us the flexibility to continue our proactive response to each new challenge as it arises. Our top priorities are addressing staffing, supply, safety, and other issues that provide comfort and well-being to patients and their families who have chosen Kadlec for their healthcare, as well as supporting our caregivers in this time of need. But we can’t do this without your help.

Now more than ever, your gift can double the impact and the health of our community. Our community is truly healthier because of your choice to take generous action - we are stronger together. 

Match Sponsors

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors! Together, these collective donors have pledged more than $60,000 to Kadlec Foundation!
