Legacy Circle starts annual fundraising campaign with a bang

POSTED September 11, 2009 10:02 p.m.
Legacy Circle of Emanuel Medical Center ended its first week of a six-week fundraising campaign with $946,676 in donations.
Community and Emanuel Medical Center employee volunteers raised $273,338, which was equally matched by the Ahlem family. The Ahlem family will continue this dollar for dollar match throughout the campaign, which aims to fully fund a $4 million Emanuel Cancer Endowment.
In addition to the $546,676 given by Legacy Circle members and the Ahlem family, the fundraising campaign has been buoyed by a $400,000 anonymous gift.
The Emanuel Cancer Endowment fundraising efforts will continue through Oct. 8 with the goal of raising the remaining $1,009,220.
Legacy Circle, Emanuel Medical Center’s annual giving program, initiated a $4 million fundraising effort in 2007 to establish the Emanuel Cancer Endowment. The endowment is a permanent fund that will generate a quarter of a million dollars annually for regional cancer services. This is the final year of a three-year campaign focused on community and employee fund-raising efforts.
The Emanuel Cancer Endowment will fund services such as: outreach and prevention, early detection, screenings, support groups, genetic risk
assessment, counseling and testing, clinical research, and participation in national clinical trials.
