The Baylor Health Care System Foundation has raised more than $500 million since its inception in 1978, The Dallas Morning News reports today.
Per The News:
It passed that milestone because of gifts from many of Dallas-Fort Worth’s leading citizens, including $20 million from the Sammons family and the men and women of Sammons Enterprises Inc.; $20 million from Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons; $12.4 million from the Deerbrook Charitable Trust; and $10 million from T. Boone Pickens.
“The impact extends into individual lives, families and communities in numerous ways,” said Rowland K. Robinson, Foundation president. “We are deeply grateful for the generosity of our donors and their commitment to advancing the mission that Baylor carries out for our community and beyond.”
The Foundation likens each generous donation to a rock dropped into water. They have each had a ripple effect, officials say, improving the lives of patients and the health of our community.
The gifts provide scholarships to employees who dream of furthering their education. They allow our system to invest in innovative clinical research. And they provide advanced medical equipment that help us to care for our most vulnerable patients.
