Wishek Hospital Clinic Association FOUNDATION

While the medical team and employees are the “face” of the WHC, there are a number of groups working behind the scenes to support their efforts. One such group is the WHC Foundation, a six-member board whose purpose is to promote fundraising in our service area.

 

The Foundation’s mission:

The Wishek Hospital Clinic Association Foundation has been formed to help provide the philanthropic and community resources needed to improve the health and welfare of the residents in the communities of our service area. Our primary focus is to provide funds to enhance the health care services and facilities for the direct benefit to residents in south central North Dakota and to improve the image of the institution as a community service-oriented organization.”

The Foundation’s base endowment fund holds in excess of $100,000, only the principal of which can be accessed to award grants submitted by the various departments of the Hospital. In the past seven years, the Foundation has raised approximately $50,000 through its various fundraising events. Grants from the hospital departments are reviewed and approved or denied based on need, availability of funds at the time and an adherence to the Foundation’s mission that the request provides direct benefit to our patients.

Over the past seven years, the Foundation has hosted an annual event each Fall as its primary fundraising effort. With generous support from the City of Wishek, the local business community, and, of course, our guests, this event has become very popular and is well-attended by an estimated 200 people each year. 

The dedicated Foundation board works for months each year to plan and host what is historically an “upscale” evening of dining and entertainment in the historic Wishek Civic Center. Each year, the Foundation attempts to raise the bar by booking quality entertainment and providing a unique dining experience for those in attendance.
