Grants Made for Fiscal Year 2018

The St. Margaret Foundation Board of Directors voted to approve the following grant disbursements in support for valuable projects for fiscal year 2018.  St. Margaret Foundation announces $552,351 in grants in alignment with the organization's strategic priorities of: 1) Patient Access, 2) Patient Education and 3) Patient Experience.

"The changing landscape of healthcare coverage has left many people anxious and at risk," said Mary Lee Gannon, president. "If you have cancer we don't want you to worry about transportation to your chemotherapy. We have four shuttles to help." The Foundation's board of directors is dedicated to the organization's motto of 'Filling in the gaps with hope' "In a flash your health can turn into the biggest challenge of your life," said Ms. Gannon. "Our donors have answered the call of their neighbors in their hour of need. "
