Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation has received $15,000 in pledged matching gifts for patient assistance funds and regional health programs but will only receive those funds if they are matched by additional gifts made on Tues., Nov. 12.
“Double Your Donation Day” sponsors are challenging the Upper Cumberland to make donations on Nov. 12 to any of the several charitable programs or patient-assistance funds at the Foundation. Established patient assistance funds include the Cancer, Heart, Pediatric, Hospice, Mental Health, Diabetes and General patient assistance funds. Established programs include the Angel Garden, Art for Healing, Carmen’s Fund-CPR Education, Community Health, Epipen Program, Music for Healing, Pink Ribbon of Hope-Free Mammogram, Pet Therapy and others.
“This year we encourage those who have never made a gift to the Foundation to please make a first time gift of $10. Just $10 will have a huge impact by helping us provide medicine or transportation to a struggling patient right here in our community. Gifts made on November 12 will have double the impact, thanks to this one-day matching opportunity. A $10 gift becomes $20; a $30 gift becomes $60 and so on. It’s a wonderful way to stretch donated dollars and make an even bigger difference,” said John Bell, Foundation Director.
The Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation helps several thousand residents of the Upper Cumberland each year who struggle with disease, sickness or injury. The Foundation frequently assists low-income and under-insured patients with things like medication, transportation, specialty equipment, groceries, preventative services, utilities, and other critical needs.
One hundred percent of donations made to the Foundation are used for charitable programs and services that assist residents living in the fourteen counties of the Upper Cumberland.
Qualifying gifts for Double Your Donation Day may be made on Tuesday, Nov. 12 by calling (931) 783-2003, online at www.CookevilleRegionalCharity.org or by mailing a check dated Nov 12 to: CRMC Foundation, 1 Medical Center Blvd, Cookeville TN 38501.
