2019 Living Legacy Giving Campaign

Your gift helps make a difference in the life and health of you, a neighbor, or someone you love.

The Perry Memorial Hospital Foundation supports the hospital and its clinics by providing financial support. Donations are used to fund major projects or purchase equipment beyond the budget constraints of Perry Memorial Hospital. Since the Foundation was established in 1991, it has leveraged the generosity of the community to make possible a variety of technology upgrades and facility improvements.



Our Goal

Construction, maintenance, and management of a healthcare facility serving thousands of area residents is expensive.  Our goal is to put our best foot forward with the Family Health Clinic facility, with the latest technology and best equipment.  Community support and generosity can help us do that. Every donation, no matter how big or small, helps make our future Family Health Clinic even better, and the quality of care available to you, your family and loved ones, the best possible. 

The Perry Memorial Family Health Clinic serves hundreds of patients each day, helping to prevent, diagnose, and manage diseases.  Chances are, that will include someone you know and love.  Wouldn’t you want them to have the best possible care? Your contribution will provide our staff the modern facility and equipment needed to keep our community healthy.

The Living Legacy Family Health Clinic Campaign seeks to raise $500,000 to support the new Family Health Clinic and the quality, rural primary care it offers.

About Georgia Fay's Living Legacy

Georgia Mary Fay lived for community:  music, dinners, and conversations. Being around people made her life enjoyable. “Georgia” meant “farmer,” and after growing up on a farm, she certainly preferred to live a slower and simpler life, focused on making the most out of time with others.

Over the course of her life, Georgia set roots in Bureau Township and the City of Princeton.  Friends and family distinctly remember her singing with her church choir, volunteering at family picnics, and cheering on the Bureau Valley Storm basketball team.

All along the way, Georgia’s life journey was guided by doctors at Perry Memorial Hospital.  She was fiercely loyal and committed, and nothing could stop her from making it to her scheduled doctor visits.  Even after moving to a nursing home in Spring Valley, Georgia was steadfast in receiving care from her Perry care team of doctors and nurses.  She utilized BPart (Bureau and Putnam Area Rural Transit) to visit Perry for all of her healthcare needs over the following six years. 

Georgia had a special place in her heart for the connections she made with people throughout her life.  She loved being with people and connecting at community events, and she valued the importance of local healthcare supporting the people and community she loved.  Her spirit will live on with her generous donation to the Perry Memorial Hospital Foundation and used to enhance patient care through the construction of the new Family Health Clinic. 

Georgia Fay's estate has contributed $195,000 towards the construction of the Family Health Clinic.  Her generosity is a step toward making the Family Health Clinic more accessible for meeting our community needs.  Won’t you help build the foundation for another 100 years of community care, promoting health and wellness for every stage of life, with a contribution to Perry’s Foundation to our Living Legacy Family Health Clinic Campaign?

Why Donate?

Perry Memorial Hospital became possible through the generous donation of Julia Rackley Perry.  Over the decades, donations have propelled Perry into the future and helped to maintain quality healthcare.  In 2020, Perry will be celebrating 100 years of community care.  Your contribution, however big or small, will help set the stage for the next 100 years of care.

We always want to acknowledge the generosity of those helping to move Perry forward.  In the completed Family Health Clinic, the names of donors will be displayed as a reminder of the importance of community collaboration.  Donations will be categorized, by amount, according to the five levels below.  Anyone who joins Georgia Fay in donating more than $50,000 will be considered a Legacy donor.
