Campaigns and Programs
Serving our mission through your generous support
For more than 25 years the Johnson Memorial Hospital Foundation has played a vital role in supporting Johnson Memorial Hospital, our community's primary healthcare provider. The Foundation raises charitable funds to help JMH improve the healthcare services and quality of life, both within the hospital and out in the community. Because of that commitment, our mission is one you can believe in.
The Foundation touches lives through scholarships for county residents pursuing healthcare careers. The Katie Robards Memorial Fund, Montgomery Registered Nursing Scholarships, JMH Employee Guild Scholarships and JMH Foundation Scholarship have awarded nearly $334,000 to hundreds of students over the past 15 years.
SUPPORTING HOSPITAL SERVICES
The Johnson Memorial Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting hospital departments with essential resources for programs, services and equipment. The To Touch a Life capital campaign raised more than $1.5 million for the establishment of the JMH Cancer Care Center, ensuring that Johnson County residents could obtain needed cancer treatment close to home. As momentum builds for the Foundation, the commitment to support JMH departments such as the Discovery Child Day Care Center in their mission to provide excellent care is greater than ever.
The Foundation is is pleased to partner with the Johnson Memorial Hospital Guild. There are many ways hospital employees and the community can support the Guild through membership, volunteering, or participating in fund-raiser activities. Proceeds earned by the Guild through sales like Easter lilies (March 2015), scrubs, jewelry, etc. benefit the hospital and the community through scholarships and providing "wish list" items for departments within the hospital. For more information about the Guild, contact volunteer coordinator, Gina Huff.
Loving Lights has become a community holiday tradition, honoring loved ones by adding a light to the ceremonial tree of lights at the hospital. Proceeds from the Loving Lights benefit scholarship programs.The Foundation has other special fundraising events, such as an annual Golf Outing and the current Reflection Garden Brick Program.
The Foundation is a true partner and supporter of Partnership for a Healthier Johnson County, which has been recognized as one of the most effective and long-standing healthy communities coalitions in the state of Indiana.
