The Foundation

The Foundation in support of the Iron County Medical Care Facility is a public non-profit organization committed to providing services, resources, and support for residents to maintain and enhance their social, physical, and mental well-being.  The Iron County Medical Care Facility has always and will continue to ensure that residents live with as much dignity and comfort as possible.  These efforts are supplemented through gifts donated by generous members of the community.  The Foundation recognizes those who make charitable gifts at all levels to ensure the unparalleled excellence of the healthcare provided to our residents.  The people of our community have played a major role in helping to bring Iron County Medical Care Facility from a 109-bed facility in 1976, to a 200-bed facility in 2005.  The future of our facility is in many ways tied to the generosity of the individuals closest to it. Donations help The Foundation to provide services essential to maintaining the same high level of quality care the residents of the facility are accustomed to along with continuing to expand services to inspire residents. 

It is The Foundation’s duty to ensure that all gifts received will be used to enhance healthcare services provided to residents. With a highly skilled board of directors, much careful consideration is put into deciding how the residents would most benefit from donations.

Giving to the Iron County Medical Care Facility
It is also The Foundation’s responsibility to help recognize those who, with great generosity choose to donate charitable gifts of any level to the facility.  Contributions are often made in acknowledgement of the life or death of a loved one or in celebration of a special occasion.  Donations can be received in gifts of cash, memorials, stocks, real estate, and life income gifts and benefits.  The Foundation has a public non-profit tax status, so all funds are tax deductible.  Donors are recognized with their name on a plaque and will have helped bring care and comfort come to those residents that call the Iron County Medical Care Facility home. Your philanthropy can make a very meaningful difference now and in the future.   For gifts of $100-$999, donors will be recognized on The Foundation’s Memorial and Honor plaque located in the Iron County Medical Care Facility lobby with a one-line inscription of the donor’s name.  Donors who make cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more are also honored on the plaque with a four-line inscription of the donors choosing.  Donation categories are; bronze with gifts ranging between $1,000 to $4,999, silver including donations between $5,000 and $9,999 and gold denoting donors of $10,000 or more.

The Foundation, which works with the facility identifying projects that will benefit the residents, has completed a very large pavilion project that was constructed on the facility grounds.  The pavilion allows for outdoor activities such as barbecues, monthly parties, group activities, musical events, or just a nice place to go to for fresh air and visiting with friends and families.

To leave your mark on the pavilion, purchase an inscribed brick that will be added to the walkway and sitting area outside of the pavilion:

Another great way to donate is to purchase a spot on the “Tree of Giving” located in the Town Square of the facility.  This beautiful tree recognizes those donors who have contributed monies at various levels:

Bronze:       $500.00 to $749.00
Silver:         $750.00 to $999.00
Gold:           $1000.00 to $1999.00
Platinum:   $2000.00 and above

If you are interested in donating, please make checks payable to: Iron County Medical Care Facility (ICMCF) Foundation and mail or drop off to:1523 US Hwy 2, Crystal Falls, MI 49920.  

Your support has helped the facility build this beautiful pavilion which our residents and family are having a wonderful time enjoying.
