It takes an exceptional community hospital to support an extraordinary community.
It takes an extraordinary community to support an exceptional community hospital.
One of our major roles at the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation is to reinforce that relationship by raising funds for programs that enhance and advance our hospital’s services, capabilities, and capacities.
Circle of Hope
The Circle of Hope program helps cancer patients feel organized & supportive.
The Circle of Hope program supports cancer patients and the people that care for them. Funds raised have helped provide care items to help make treatment more comfortable as well as educational opportunities for staff so they are better able to serve their patients.
Every Fairbanksan probably knows of someone that has been touched by this disease. The Circle of Hope is a circle of support from diagnosis to survivorship.
Hospice provides respite care and practical support to families.
With the help of medical professionals and volunteers, Fairbanks Memorial Hospital Hospice Services provides end of life care, comfort and support. This care comes in many forms. From reducing pain to addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
Gifts from generous donors allow Hospice professionals and volunteers to enhance this end of life care where they see a need. This can be anything from a needed new pillow to help with utility payments to keep the patient in their home. The Hospice gift fund has even help to reunite families for their final goodbyes. Your gift to Hospice services helps to do amazing work.
Where Needed Most
Your unrestricted gifts allow us to be quick, nimble and responsive. These gifts go straight to the area of greatest need and enable us to ensure that the hospital flourishes.
Capital Projects and Equipment
Over the years, our community’s needs change. Technology is ever evolving. The Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation is continually investing in the future of the Hospital. Capital Projects and Equipment are a major part of this investment and our ability to continually meet the ever changing needs the future holds.
The Simulation Education Department at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital is more than what you might think. This department helps to keep medical personal practiced and certified so that they are prepared for all situations. This FMH department extends beyond the Hospital walls to offer training to the EMT Training program as well. This kind of hands on training is made to be as realistic as possible so that healthcare professionals are able to react in the moment to any situation they face.
Taking off the Mask, a gala to benefit behavioral health care in Fairbanks was held on October 26, 2019 to kick off the behavioral health fundraising campaign. Our local behavioral health care system is in crisis. Access to services has declined. This crisis affects businesses, families, patients, children and our justice system. We cannot rely on sources outside our community to resolve this problem. We are asking for your support to make a difference.
