Cooperstown Medical Center Foundation
An Investment in our Community’s Local Health Care Services
The primary purpose of the Cooperstown Medical Center Foundation is to solicit and raise funds to benefit the Hospital, Nursing Home and Clinic.
Projects of the Foundation
CMC 500 Club
For as little as $50 a year, over 10 years, or a one time gift of $500 or more, you can become a member of the CMC 500 CLUB. All members receive their choice of a CLUB jacket, or a distinguished plaque when they enroll as a 500 CLUB member.
Challenge Fund Drive
Kicked-Off in the fall of 1998, the Challenge Fund Drive set an ambitious goal of raising $500,000 to support operations of the hospital, nursing home and clinic without implementing a door-to-door fundraising campaign.
Funds raised through the 500 Club and the Challenge Fund Drive are used exclusively to:
  • Render operational support for the Hospital, Nursing Home and Clinic.

  • Provide for upgrading and maintenance of equipment and the facility.

  • Ensure that there are adequate and properly trained staff available to provide you with round-the-clock health care services.
Other Options
Memorial Gift Program
Memorial card sets are a combination of a tasteful sympathy card that may be sent as a condolence to the family, and an enclosure card which may be sent to the Cooperstown Medical Center reflecting your gift to the facility.
Memorial Cards are available at Community First National Bank, Cooperstown; Security State Bank of North Dakota, Cooperstown and Hannaford; Citizens State Bank of Finley, Cooperston Branch; Sheyenne Financial, Binford and Cooperstown; Farmer’s and Merchant’s State Bank of Tolna, Binford Branch; McVille State Bank, Binford; Quam Plaisted, Cushman Funeral Home, Cooperstown, and at Cooperstown Funeral Chapel of Cooperstown.
