Endowment Fund

An endowment is a fund that is restricted. Only the interest from the fund can be spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. In order to assure that the original funds will grow over time, only a portion of the interest or earnings from the endowment are, typically, spent annually.

Pardee plans to be around for a long time and you have an opportunity to provide a gift that will keep on giving well into the future. Be a part of the history we have shared. Be a part of the future we are building. Your gift to the Endowment Fund will forever touch the lives of people who turn to Pardee for support and services.

Myra N. Grant Endowment for Women's Initiatives

In her 16 years as executive director of the Pardee Hospital Foundation, Myra Grant championed the development of Pardee staff, young women within the community, as well as the patient care needs of women. At her retirement, the Foundation Board of Directors honored her in a lasting way by establishing an endowment fund to support women's initiatives at Pardee Hospital.

This endowment will produce income that will be used to:

  • Train, educate and coach primarily female staff at Pardee Hospital, and
  • Purchase equipment and other resources to improve patient care for departments serving women and children

Your support of The Myra N. Grant Endowment for Women's Initiatives will help provide training opportunities for female employees in departments that lack training funds, give current female employees access to career growth opportunities they could not otherwise afford on their own, and assist the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center with purchases of the latest technology and equipment.
