Historical Giving Wall
The Kirby organization originated from a gift, an act of kindness toward
the people of Piatt County by John and Mary Kirby. The tradition of giving
continued for the next 75 years with their daughter and son-in-law, along
with many other community members. The names of the individuals and businesses
displayed on the Historical Giving Wall represent a rich history of giving
to Kirby Hospital on State Street. These donors provided the hospital
with the necessary resources to deliver quality healthcare locally, just
as the Kirby family envisioned so many years ago.
Sustained Giving Donor Recognition
Throughout Kirby Medical Center, the names of those whom we’re honoring
for their campaign leadership gifts can be found on a special recognition
wall, as do the names of those who are carrying on the spirit of philanthropy
through sustained giving.
