Small community raises $5 million for a new state-of-the-art hospital
After conducting a feasibility study, McDonald Schaefer directed a $5 million capital campaign to help this small hospital foundation partially fund construction of a new state-of-the-art $47 million hospital. With limited major gift fundraising history, McDonald Schaefer guided this foundation’s growth and redirected its focus to major gift opportunities presented by the campaign.
The community raised an astonishing $5 million, a groundbreaking figure for rural Wisconsin hospitals.
