15 Spots left on our Donor Wall

When the Bonner General Health Foundation Board strategized on maximizing its fundraising efforts for the Bonner General Health Emergency Department remodel, they came up with a unique idea. Why not acknowledge those who have supported the Foundation’s efforts with a permanent place of honor in the hospital?

“We rely heavily on our generous donors’ support to provide exceptional healthcare close to home,” said Molly Behrens, community development coordinator for Bonner General Health. “We wanted to honor the donors who made the Emergency Department remodel possible by including them in a permanent work of art in the waiting room.”

During the Foundation’s campaign that ran in conjunction with the Heart Ball earlier this year, 19 donors gave a minimum of $5,000, two of whom gave $10,000 or more.

There was much thought and effort that went into the design of the wall; the end product is a beautiful tribute to the donors and the beauty of Sandpoint.

Justin Dick, President of the Bonner General Health Foundation Board, said many people are not aware that the hospital is a nonprofit and hopes that others will continue to support BGH for years to come. “It’s essential to us that we recognize our donors,” said Dick of not just those on the donor wall but all of their supporters. “Those who contributed to the recent remodel have forever changed the landscape of the Emergency Department, and for that, we are grateful.”

There are currently 15 spots available on the donor wall, if you would like to be listed, please contact Molly Behrens at 208-265-1005 at Bonner General Health.
