Those who came forward to fund the CuddleCot (see related story called Precious Time with Lost Angels) are in good company. They join a lengthy list of compassionate individuals and organizations who collaborate with NorthBay Healthcare Foundation to meet its fundraising mission to support NorthBay Healthcare programs.
Early on, donations came from penny wraps and bake sales. As the need grew, so have avenues of support: event sponsorships, donations from grateful patients and families, those who named NorthBay as a beneficiary in their will and insurance policies, and through endowments and grants, both large and small. One large $500,000 donation from Genentech helped NorthBay remodel the NorthBay VacaValley Hospital Emergency Department. More recently, Genentech supported the NorthBay Cancer Center through the Strike Out Cancer collaboration with the Sacramento River Cats.
Other donations, from Solano Community Foundation, local Rotary Clubs, Soroptimists, Vacaville Fire Department, Wells Fargo Advisors and Pacific Gas and Electric, to name a few, have helped support NorthBay’s trauma program, Operation PROMises, our NICU and Women and Children’s Services, and the NorthBay Adult Day Center.
