Foundation Establishes Haiti Relief Fund
January 28, 2010
The St. James Healthcare Foundation has established an Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund in cooperation with Granite Mountain Bank to provide assistance to Haiti. Individuals and organizations throughout Southwest Montana are invited to contribute to the fund.
St. James Healthcare employees can contribute directly to the fund or through payroll deductions. The Foundation will match donations up to $2,000 and the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System (SCLHS) will match contributions up to $100,000.
The contributions will be divided equally among the following three agencies:
• The American Red Cross
• Catholic Relief Services
• Partners in Progress in Haiti (an organization that has been supported by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth for several years)
Checks and money orders should be made payable to the St. James Healthcare Foundation and clearly specify “Haiti Earthquake Disaster Relief.” Contributors are asked to provide their name and address so the Foundation can track the tax deductible donations. The Foundation and Granite Mountain Bank will take no fees for administering the project.
Private contributions can be mailed directly to the St. James Healthcare Foundation at P.O. Box 3300, Butte MT 59702 or dropped off at Granite Mountain Bank at 605 Dewey Blvd.
