Presence Saint Francis Hospital donors issue six-figure challenge grant

The Presence Saint Francis Hospital Keystone Founders Society has committed to raise $500,000 by the end of 2017 for continued improvements to the hospital’s cancer center. To inspire giving, a group of anonymous donors issued a $250,000 dollar-for-dollar matching challenge and requested the Center for Cancer Care be named in honor of Sheila and Bob Hulseman. The Hulsemans are among the hospital’s most significant supporters over the past 40 years.

The Keystone Founders Society consists of friends, physicians and patients who have made a significant commitment to support the hospital’s ministry with annual gifts of $1,000 or more.  Established in 1988, generous support from individual donors of the Founders Society has provided gifts of immeasurable value:  the latest in life-saving medical technologies, comfort and support for the ailing through innovative patient care and amenities, and opportunities for Presence Saint Francis Hospital professionals to develop their skills.

Gifts to the Founders Society of any size are welcome and will be matched. To make a gift, please contact Katie Fairbank, Presence Health Foundation Development Officer, at 312.550.2112.
