Friends of Memorial

Working Together to Strengthen Our Community

Friends of Memorial Friends of Memorial Council members Jean Payne, Barbie Standefer and Kathleen Mahn welcome guests to The Flying Squirrel fundraiser to benefit the Friends of Memorial nursing scholarship fund.

Friends of Memorial are individuals who support the mission and ministry of CHI Memorial with an annual gift to the Foundation. In 2016-2017, gifts to the Friends of Memorial will be used to fund scholarships for CHI Memorial nurses to complete their bachelor’s degrees. Nurses are the primary caregivers for our patients. With that in mind, these scholarships will allow current staff to advance their knowledge and skills as bachelors prepared nurses. Since 2001, Friends of Memorial gifts have purchased more than $1 million in technology, equipment and capital projects including the simulation learning center, a dedicated breast MRI, endobronchial ultrasound equipment, two mobile wellness coaches, surgery family waiting area, nutrition education room, and the cancer risk and survivorship center.

The Friends of Memorial Society is an annual recognition program for donors who support the needs of Memorial with an annual gift of $100 or more. You can become a member at any of the following giving levels:

Bronze – $100 - $249
Silver – $250 - $499
