To support the life of mlh by inviting community philanthropic partners to invest in the parts of our mission that demand enhancements in research, facility or programs. Communicating the bold faith of our founders and expansive vision of a more full and healthy life for the communities we serve. The Foundation raises funds to benefit and strengthen Methodist le bonheur Healthcare through programs, enhancements to facilities, community health programs, patient support resources, and centers of excellence. 1. Funds raised enhance and strengthen clinical and research initiatives, underwrite costs for facilities, technology and equipment, and bridge the gap between what hospital charges cover and what is necessary to stay on the cutting edge of medical science and provide quality care to all who need it in our community. Areas of fundraising success to promote clinical excellence and innovation include:-a. james d. eason transplant intitute at Methodist university hospital funds were secured primarily from individual donors to bolster research and patient care enhanements, retain and recruit expert staff and caregivers, and provide holistic social, emotional, and physical care to all organ transplant patients.-b. Comprehensive sickle cell center funds from donors were secured in 2020 that are now helping advance the level of care provided to patients served by the comprehensive sickle cell center. Specific improvements include expansion of key staff positions, renovations to existing clinic space, patient support groups, community education activities, clinical research, and patient support resources. Specific emphasis is put on transitioning young adult patients from pediatric care into adult care, which is supported through our collaborative partnership with st. jude children's research hospital's sickle cell center. 2. We raise funds to provide educational offerings and supportive programs that remove barriers and help community members throughout the memphis and mid-south region to access health care services and maintain their health. Examples of this work include: -a. Community collective for reading literacy advancing 3rd grade reading proficiency as a key indicator of lifelong health and well-being through grant and individual donor funding, Methodist partners with booknook, an educational technology provider, to offer remote and in-person reading tutoring to students across the city and county. This project has reached over 3,000 students through 75 community sites. The project achieved positive, measurable impacts on the students' reading proficiecy and growth compared to students who did not participate in the project. -b. navigating women to better breast health - providing access to breast cancer screening and care to underserved women - research indicates that african american women in memphis are twice as likely to die from breast cancer as caucasian women. The Foundation received funding from susan g. komen memphis-midsouth and other philanthropic organizations and individual donors to help underserved women receive screenings. We received our 10th consecutive year of funding to support our efforts to navigate underserved women to breast health resources in order to promote prevention and earlier detection of breast cancer among underserved and minority populations. During the 2020 grant year this funding supported the navigation of community members and paid for over 400 breast mammography screenings and diagnostic exams.-c. diabetes education providing education and support to prevent diabetes and imrove self-management of the chronic disease among at-risk community members in the 38109/south memphis community and beyond. Using evidence-based curriculum, a team of navigators and educators provides intensive, hands-on educational opportunities to community members living with diabetes or who are diagnosed with pre-diabetes as well as caregivers to help them prevent and/or better manage the disease. The classes are open to all and provided completely free of charge. 3. The Foundation also raises funds to support Methodist's hospice programs, including home-based hospice, the hospice residence, hospital-based hospice, bereavement support, and more. Our hospice program provides comprehensive clinical, palliative, spiritual and social support care for patients and their families. Donor dollars support care enhancements, patient support resources, bereavement, community education, and also cover the cost of care for patients who are uninsured and unable to pay. Methodist hospice is part of alliance health services, inc., a 501c3 (ein 62-084112), and subsidiary of Methodist le bonheur Healthcare.
