John C. Lincoln Health Foundation's Guild Gives $550,000 to Support Medical, Social Services

Record-breaking proceeds from the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation's 2011 Night of Gold Ball enabled the Guild to distribute more than half a million dollars in May to advance the Network's vital medical initiatives and Desert Mission community programs, according to Marcia Mintz, CEO of the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation.

The Guild Giving Society, made up of medical, business and community leaders, is committed to supporting the philanthropic efforts of the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation.

"Guild members strive to make a meaningful impact by investing in advanced technology, health education and community service programs throughout our Network. This year, they were excited to award 17 grants totaling $316,940," Mintz said. "As we look forward to a new Guild year next fall, I encourage physicians and others to consider joining the Guild and becoming involved in the Foundation's efforts in supporting the Network," she added.

Each year, Guild members decide how their funds are distributed among Network initiatives and programs. Key grants this year include:

In addition, North Mountain Hospital's Level I Trauma Center received $212,000 from the Guild for its Trauma Survivors Network and trauma education. For more information about ways to get involved with the Foundation, please visit or contact 602-331-7860.
