Cancer and Community Charities reaches milestone in giving to Kootenai Health
The Kootenai Health Foundation is honored to celebrate 32 years of philanthropic partnership with Cancer and Community Charities (3Cs). The total given to date by the local nonprofit organization has reached nearly $313,000. The first gift from 3Cs was given in 1986 to support the campaign to build the Kootenai Cancer Center which opened in 1987, and subsequent annual gifts have supported the Walden House and the Foundation’s Festival of Trees fundraiser. Cancer and Community Charities is the longest standing consecutive donor in the Foundation’s 34-year history. Kootenai Health representatives met with the nonprofit’s current president and past presidents to thank them for the 3Cs’ longstanding generosity.
