Memorials & Major Gifts
The Wallowa Valley Health Care Foundation welcomes you to leave a legacy for loved ones by forming a memorial through the Foundation. Memorials and major gifts have played an important role in the success of Wallowa Memorial Hospital.
George and Beth Morris
Thanks to a generous gift from George and Beth Morris, we were able to outfit our new Pediatric Occupational therapy Department – because of your support, Wallowa County children can now receive critical occupational therapy services right here in Wallowa County.
Edgar Burbridge and Frances Boyd Burbridge Memorial
This generous family wanted to make sure that health care in Wallowa County remained strong and planned an estate gift of $231,557 that we received in July of 2018.
Jack McClaran Memorial
The Jack McClaran Memorial was established to launch a new Aquatic Therapy Program at Wallowa Memorial Hospital, where those recovering from surgery or injury can recover through aquatic therapy.
Wilfred & Sandra Daggett
The Wilfred & Sandra Daggett donation of $110,000 helped fund the Wallowa Valley Senior Living. This gift was used to improve the facility for those living at Wallowa Valley Senior Living. The family continues to give generous contributions year after year.
David Jandt Memorial
The David Jandt Memorial funded a Reflection Garden at Wallowa Valley Senior Living for families to relax with their loved ones. Thanks to the generosity of David Jandt’s family and friends, the Reflection Garden is enjoyed by residents and visitors.
Oakley & Marjorie Johnson
The Oakley & Marjorie Johnson endowment fund of $284,496 supports building improvements, education and training, and other capital expenditures.
Guy & Margaret Boyd, Roy & Lorna Carrol, and James & Denise Dawson
This generous family donated $218,484 toward the building of the new Wallowa Memorial Hospital, completed in 2007. The new hospital is the award winning pride of the community and serves as an example to other rural hospitals.
Jack H. & Roberta Boyd Johnson Memorial
In honor of Frank A. & Lora Shinn Boyd $50,000 was donated. This money went toward buying a much needed new ambulance. This ambulance has been instrumental in supplying safe healthcare transportation to those in need.
Gwen & Gladys Coffin Memorial
Gladys Coffin gave the Foundation an irrevocable gift in the amount of $500,000 in honor of her late husband, Gwen. This donation helped bring financial stability to the Foundation, and helped it reach a major milestone when its portfolio passed the $1,000,000 mark in 2011.
