Cookeville – Double Your Donation Day for Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation is on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. Gifts made to a patient assistance fund or charitable program at the Foundation will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation helps several thousand residents of the Upper Cumberland each year who are suffering with disease, sickness or injury. The Foundation frequently assists struggling patients with things like medication, medical services, transportation, medical equipment, groceries, utilities and other critical medical or home needs.
Established patient assistance funds include: Heart, Hospice, Pediatric, Cancer, Diabetes, Mental Health and the General Assistance Fund called Caring Hands. Established programs include: Pink Ribbon, Lung Fund, Pet Therapy, Art for Healing, Community Health and Carmen’s Fund.
One hundred percent of donations made to the Foundation go directly to charitable programs and services that assist residents living in the 14 counties of the Upper Cumberland. No portion of your gift is used for overhead or staff expense.
“We are asking you to please give what you can. Your gift will then be matched and go to help neighbors facing a health emergency today,” said John Bell, Foundation director. “A $20 gift becomes $40 to help a local patient; a $100 gift becomes $200, and so on. It is a wonderful way to have double the impact helping a neighbor dealing with a health crisis.”
Gifts made as a part of Double Your Donation Day will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $30,000. Gifts may be made online at www.CookevilleRegionalCharity.org, over the phone at 931-783-2003 or by sending a check to CRMC Foundation, 1 Medical Center Blvd, Cookeville TN 38501 with a date of Nov. 8 indicated on the check
