Chairman’s Campaign: Honoring Our Past, Building the Future

As we pay tribute to Dr. Ida Scudder during the 150th anniversary of her birth, and celebrate the accomplishments of the extraordinary institution she founded, we also look to the future to determine how best to keep Dr. Ida’s legacy of compassionate care, excellence in education and dedication to scientific research alive.

 As always, our goal is to support CMC’s efforts to meet the many humanitarian and health care improvement challenges they face – through meaningful idea exchange and financial support.

The goal of this year’s Three Knocks Campaign is to create a fund, managed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors and used to best enable the Foundation to respond to the emerging and urgent needs of CMC as they arise.
