12 Days of Giving Give the Gift of Caring

Make Spirits Bright – Give the Gift of Caring this Holiday Season

In celebration of the most wonderful time of year, The Kirby Foundation is kicking off a 12 Days of Giving campaign to raise awareness about the impact you can make with a donation to The Foundation.

We are grateful to our community for their willingness to support us in our mission to further community health resources and medical campus improvements.

Donation Spotlight: Courtesy Shuttle


Kirby is certainly a better place thanks to the annual contributions of the Auxiliary. Since opening the doors of our current facility in September 2012, the Auxiliary has contributed $248,000 to the Foundation. We are proud of the good work they do for Kirby and our community, including their most recent support of the new Courtesy Shuttle.

“The Foundation is grateful for their generosity both as individuals and collectively as an organization,” said Sarah Ross, Director of Development. “These volunteer leaders make a tremendous impact on healthcare in Piatt County.
