The Northeast Montana Health Services' Charitable Foundation recently received a $1,000 grant from the Roosevelt County Community Foundation's endowment in support of helping the Foundation achieve their 2013-2014 goal of supplementing the purchase of a 4D Ultrasound and Echocardiogram machine for Northeast Montana Health Services Trinity Hospital campus.
This is the second time the Charitable Foundation has been a recipient of this grant after being awarded it in 2013 for $500.
"We are extremely grateful to the Roosevelt County Community Foundation for the valuable financial contributions it gives to its community organizations and non-profit businesses," said Beth Pickthorn, executive director for the NEMHS Charitable Foundation.
The charitable foundation pledged two-and-a-half years ago to financially assist NEMHS with the purchase of the new 4D ultrasound and echocardiogram unit which enables healthcare providers to detects abnormalities faster and patients to receive care in their community. Images are displayed in real-time with movements of internal organs, blood flow, muscle contractions and movement of unborn babies are also seen through the advanced equipment. The machine produces high level diagnostic information that assists healthcare professionals with providing faster, more accurate and less invasive test results.
The amount pledged to Trinity and Poplar Hospitals from the NEMHS Charitable Foundation over the last two years was $65,000. This total amounts to about one-third the cost of the machine and training. "Our foundation has had impressive success with our events, but with yearly business budgets within the foundation and expenses, we find it necessary to obtain supplemental grant monies to help us reach our goals," Pickthorn said.
The Roosevelt County Community Foundation endowment was established in 1997 as an affiliate fund of the Montana Community Foundation. Their goal is to build community vitality through endowed philanthropy. The earnings from their endowment fund are distributed through grants to non-profit organizations within their community. They have two grant cycles each year; one in May and the other in November. Currently their board members include; Ruth Boysun, president; Karen Jeide, secretary/treasurer; Tom McPherson, director; and Jeff Harada, director.
