The Tidelands Health Foundation is grateful for the wide range of support from the community and beyond. Every gift helps us serve the growing Tidelands region by providing new technologies, modern facilities and increased access to health care services.
Here, we celebrate monumental milestones in our fundraising efforts – and the individuals and groups behind them - that allow us to strengthen health and wellness in our community.
Yawkey Foundation Donates a Record $10 million
In 2018, the Yawkey Foundations donated $10 million to help fund major enhancements to Tidelands Georgetown. The donation not only is the largest in the history of Tidelands Health, it is one of the largest ever awarded to an organization in the region.
The $1 million dollar gift
Joe and Denise Harris donated $1 million to Tidelands Health in 2018 – the largest donation ever from private individuals.
The couple, of Bellingham, Washington, has strong ties to the Georgetown area and plan to call it their primary home one day. They made the record-setting donation, in part, to “pay it forward” after receiving quality, compassionate care from Tidelands Health.
