100k Challenge Match

On March 23, the Boards of Trustees of both Doylestown Hospital and Doylestown Health Foundation announced a $100,000 Challenge Match to the community in honor and recognition of National Doctors’ Day (March 30), as well as National Healthcare Volunteer Week (April 19-25) and National Nurses Week (May 6-12). All gifts made in response to the Challenge will be matched by the Board members up to $100,000 through June 30, 2021.

“This Challenge was issued by the Boards as a gesture of our tremendous gratitude to and appreciation for our dedicated Doylestown Health care providers,” says Joan Parlee, Chair of the Boards of Doylestown Hospital and Doylestown Health Foundation.

All gifts to the Challenge Match support ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health, which recently passed the halfway point to its planned conclusion in 2023, coinciding with the hospital’s 100th anniversary celebration. In January, having reached just over $70 million in gifts, Doylestown Health announced the increase of the campaign goal from the original $75 million to $100 million.

The Challenge Match was issued with participation across both Boards. “Standing at the helm of this organization, as we do,” Parlee says, “it is incumbent on us to inspire our community to join — and rejoin — the cause so close to our hearts.”

“This Challenge Match is a demonstration of our Trustees’ commitment to the healthcare professionals and volunteers who make Doylestown Health the unique and outstanding healthcare provider that it is,” says Laura Wortman, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Doylestown Health. “We are fortunate to have so much medical talent and expertise at the service of our community, and hopeful that this Challenge will galvanize renewed support that will allow us to continue to attract expert physicians and nurses, and dedicated volunteers.”

Doylestown Health Foundation is profoundly grateful for the enormous generosity of the community throughout the last year in response to the pandemic and the history of the One Vision Campaign.
