The Foundation in support of the Ingham County Medical Care Facility was established in 2002 to “enhance and improve the quality of life and environment for the residents, staff, families and volunteers at the Ingham County Medical Care Facility”.
**In 1844, the founders of Ingham County Medical Care Facility laid the foundation for our great health care center brick by brick. Just as they built a premier facility that continues to support and improve lives decades later, you can continue this legacy of greatness by purchasing your own brick today. Bricks will be placed on either side of our sidewalk/wellness trail that surrounds the buildings and profits from brick sales will be used to fund new and ongoing resident programming as well as indoor and outdoor projects that will improve the lives of those we serve. To order your brick today, please click the link on this page.**
With rising costs and funding cutbacks, ICMCF’s supporters have become part of a network of generous friends that have improved the lives of everyone that is a part of our campus by supporting the Foundation; which plays such an important role in providing enhancements and life-enriching opportunities for those entrusted to our care. The list below includes examples of just a few ways that gifts to the Foundation have been put to work:
- A 1/2 mile paved wellness trail that meanders through our beautiful grounds
- The acquisition of a facility bus for outings
- A greenhouse with raised beds for wheelchair gardening
- An underwater treadmill in our warm water pool
- Trips for residents and patients on a paddle boat touring the Grand River in Autumn
- An evening of music in the park for our residents and patients
- The purchase of instruments for music therapy
- A renovated beauty shop
- Facility picnic tables for residents/patients/staff/families and volunteers to enjoy
- Whisper Glide swings
You can support the Foundation in many forms. Families may designate the Foundation to receive gifts in memory of or in honor of a resident or patient through ICMCF’s annual fund raising event, or immediately by clicking on the DONATE button on this page or our home page.
The Foundation exists to help enhance the commitment of ICMCF and improve the lives of our community’s most vulnerable population. Our Foundation thanks you for your support which allows us to continue to provide a rich and vibrant life for our residents and patients.
The Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization and gifts are tax deductible. Please contact the Foundation if you have questions or need additional information by calling (517) 381-6126.
