The Western Marquette County Health Foundation Needs Your Help
The Western Marquette County Health Foundation needs 90 minutes of your time to help us make a difference in the health and lives of our friends and neighbors on the West End of Marquette County.
We are asking you to participate in a small group discussion with other interested representatives of grantees, non-profit organizations, community leaders, youth and parents to help us make good decisions on how the Western Marquette County Health Foundation can best use the $7,000,000 endowment fund we received as a result of the sale of Bell Hospital to LifePoint.
There are several times for the small group discussions led by Simply Superior Consulting, and your input will allow us to help us create meaningful programs to improve the health of local residents. To RSVP, please call (906) 204-7410 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
