The end of the year is always a rewarding time for philanthropy. It’s amazing how generous so many of our friends are at this time of year.
One key highlight related to our Guest Housing project came to pass when a group of siblings signed over their mother’s former home as an outright gift to Providence Portland Medical Foundation. Their mother passed many years ago and the house, while vacant, has been maintained and is current on its taxes. The home received an appraisal of $385,000 and that becomes the value of this gift. This family has chosen to split the proceeds between Guest Housing and Cancer Research.
That brings our Guest Housing total to $1,816,454. We must get to the $2 million mark before we can move this project forward. We’re getting very close. We appreciate our many friends at GlobalGiving for helping us to achieve our goal.
