Lighting the Way
The Beacon Society was founded by the Special Gifts committee of McLaren Port Huron Foundation in 1991 to recognize individuals for their generous contributions to some of the hospital's areas of greatest need. The Beacon Society is a giving club with a minimum commitment of $10,000 over a 10 year period.
Just as a lighthouse beacon provides sound guidance and direction for shipping, the Beacon Society lights the way for excellence in the health of our community. Gifts made through the Society have funded a variety of projects and programs, including:
Open Heart Equipment
Emergency Center Equipment
Mobile X-Ray Machine
Miriam F. Acheson Family Birth Place
Pneumonia Vaccines for Inpatient Seniors
CPR Awareness Day
Components of the Prescription for Progress
John F. Wismer Health Center
HealthAccess Information Line
Mammography Suite at Wismer Health Center
Digital Mammography at Women's Wellness Place
Community Education Programs
Emergency Center Expansion and Renovation
IV Infusion Pumps
Members of the Beacon Society promote health, life and hope - a rare and valuable gift. In appreciation, McLaren Port Huron Foundation accords special recognition to the Society's members; as a member, you will be featured on a permanent recognition display located in the main lobby of the hospital, and will be recognized in hospital newsletters and other publications. In addition, Beacon members are accorded special invitations to significant functions and events in the life of McLaren Port Huron throughout the year.
