The Heart Safe Community Initiative is changing the culture in Loveland and Berthoud. The McKee Medical Center Foundation started this special project in spring of 2014 with the purpose of improving outcomes for people who experience cardiac problems in the Loveland and Berthoud area. Partners include Thompson Valley EMS, the Loveland Police Department, Loveland Fire and Rescue Authority, the Thompson School District and Banner Health.

A new, very exciting project is the creation of an Employee Gym at McKee Medical Center. Support the health and wellness of those who care for us! Promote wellness in the workplace at McKee.

Executive Director Statement

"We raise funds and friends for the health and wellness of our community. We exist to make a difference in people's lives through excellent patient care."

We Fund raise:

We work with individuals, families, business and foundations to create charitable experiences that match donor needs and the needs of the Loveland area community to obtain "extra-ordinary" healthcare programs and services for McKee Medical Center and its affiliates.

This is done through annual gifts, special events, grants, memorial gifts, major and many types of financial planning tools. Since the Foundation's inception we have given over $26 million dollars averaging $750,000 annually back to McKee Medical Center. We accept gifts of cash, stock, bonds, real property, bequests and estate gifts.

We Friend raise:

Staff and board committee structures reach out to the northern Colorado community, business and professional groups, state and national foundations, corporations, and faith based organizations. Our donor prospect data base has increased by 175% in the last 5 years.

We manage gifts carefully and are thoughtful stewards:
The Foundation Board's Executive Committee and its Finance and Investment Committee, and the Audit Committee, in concert with our trustee, Home State Bank, meet our obligations to be good stewards and to manage the investments prudently according to our approved investment policy. Our audits and Form 990 are made public annually online via GuideStar.

Board Chair/President Statement

The McKee Medical Center Foundation is one of the most productive and successful foundations in northern Colorado. We have been a leader in building support for our community hospital for over thirty years. This foundation, along with its board of directors and staff, have been very successful in bringing the donor's wishes to fruition to support excellent patient care in Loveland. This foundation is celebrating its 34th anniversary this year. Looking back, we are proud that we have been successful in all of our campaigns for equipment, programs and capital needs; we have raised over $26 million dollars for patient care over the years. We have several board members who have been with us for many of those years as very productive board members. It is a distinct honor to work with this group of volunteers and staff as well as our past presidents and board members. Now, we look forward to our participation in Colorado Gives Day; this board believes all Coloradoans need to support our non- profit organizations to build a better Colorado. Everyone's gifts raise the tide for all of us!

From a McKee Medical Center patient in 2015: "I would not change a thing. They were excellent; they were just beautiful people--the nurses, doctors, everyone was professional and friendly and I really, really, liked my stay. I LOVED IT! Everybody had beautiful smiles and were all asking how I was doing. Very helpful with my questions and I think I'm doing this well because of them."
