Murray-Calloway Endowment for Healthcare Prepares for Kentucky Gives Day April 9

03-21-14-MC-Endowment-participates-in-KY-Gives-DayMURRAY, Ky. (3/23/14) — The Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare is one of the hundreds of nonprofits participating in Kentucky Gives Day April 9, 2014.

Organized by the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, Inc. and presented by Baptist Health, Kentucky Gives Day is an online fundraising event that encourages Kentuckians to donate as much money as possible in support of their favorite participating charities in just twenty-four hours.

Last year, the Endowment participated in efforts to raise funds for the upcoming Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House and raised more than $1,300. This year, donations will again be designated to the construction and maintenance of the Hospice House.

“Hospice Care is not about dying; it’s about living life as fully as possible for as long as possible. At the Hospice House, residents will have everything they need to keep up a high quality of life,” said Sherri Boyd, RN, Hospice Coordinator.

The Hospice House will provide a first of its kind service line in western Kentucky by offering end of life care in a comfortable, home like setting. It will be an acute care, inpatient facility that is specifically designed to address the requirements and requests of patients facing end of life scenarios. Healthcare professionals will provide pain management, symptom control and medical procedures in a safe, home-like setting where families and friends are encouraged to visit.

Beginning at midnight EDT April 9 and continuing until 11:59pm EDT, Kentuckians will go online to kygives.org, connect with causes like the Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare and make tax-deductible donations. Donations made on the site beforehand will also be accepted and will be processed during the event.

“This is a unique way to gain funds for the Hospice House but also to show how we as Kentuckians come together to support good causes. We saw this spirit last year when we participated and hope to see it again this year,” said Keith Travis, Vice President of Development at MCCH.

“We saw the collective power of philanthropy with last year’s inaugural Kentucky Gives Day and we are excited to build on this success,” said Danielle Clore, executive director of the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, Inc. “Nonprofits work to strengthen our communities and they need our support. I encourage all Kentuckians to go online April 9 and become part of a historic day of generosity in our Commonwealth.”

To donate, users may log on to www.KYGives.org and search for “Friends of Hospice,” then choose their donation level. All donation amounts are accepted, and will be processed April 9, 2014.

“Just $30 can provide 30 minutes of specialized bathing care by a trained Hospice Aide, or $200 can provide a full eight hours of direct care from a Hospice Nurse,” Travis said.

The Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare is a 501(c)(3) organization and a supporting organization under section 509(a)(3). For more information, contact Travis at (270) 762-1908 or visit www.MCCHEndowment.org.
