The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation has partnered with the Community Foundation of North Central Florida (CFNCF) to establish an endowment program for the North Florida/South Georgia Fisher House. A commitment to the endowment will help families now and well into the future of the North Florida/South Georgia Fisher House. With your permission, the Gainesville Fisher House also recognizes its Operation Endowment "Honor Guard" in several ways:
- You and/or your company will be recognized at each fundraising event
- You and/or your company will be given a commemorative brick in the Walk of Courage
- You and/or your company can become more involved with the Fisher House through a volunteer program
The new Fisher House, located on the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center campus, serves a vast area of North Florida and South Georgia; veterans from all over the region travel to Gainesville to be treated at the medical center. Their families now have an incredible, all-inclusive facility to stay at while their family member receives long term or serious treatment. Our endowment program, through the CFNCF, will be a continuous source of funding for the immediate needs of the house and its guests.
The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation board found "Operation Endowment" to be a perfect fit for its ongoing mission to help veterans and their families in the region, and it is proud to spread awareness of the new program to the community. The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation chose to partner with the Community Foundation of North Central Florida for Operation Endowment because of its respected presence in the region. Since its creation in 1998, the CFNCF has grown in influence and sophistication to better serve the people and needs of North Central Florida. Through a generous grant from the Cade Family Foundation, the CFNCF operates to grow its funds and continually assist the community. The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation will reach a broader field of donors and planners with the CFNCF's presence in Operation Endowment.
