How is your donation used?

      Your donations are used in one of two ways:

       

      Donated funds are used for direct patient care by MDNA Registered Nurses, or for patient supplies, nursing equipment or other items related to the quality and provision of patient care, or for supporting community events which assist residents in gaining or maintaining the healthiest quality of life possible. Between 75-80% of donations received go for direct care and community prevention.

       

      If donations are not needed for direct care expenses, community education and clinics or operating expenses, then funds are placed into the MDNA Endowment Account, with the goal of building the Endowment Account to a level where operating expenses and overhead can be funded through investment income.
