EDGEWOOD, Ky. — Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky now manages a designated fund in partnership with St. Elizabeth Healthcare to support the health system’s brand new cancer center in Edgewood. The St. Elizabeth Fund offers donors a maximum tax advantage, with the convenience of Horizon Community Funds managing the funds.
The center, led by Executive Medical Director Dr. Doug Flora, will expand on St. Elizabeth’s efforts in prevention, genetic screening, precision medicine, clinical research and treatment options. Construction of the new five-story, 230,000-s.f. center began in August 2018, with anticipated completion in 2020.
“We are extremely proud of this partnership with Horizon Community Funds,” said Garren Colvin, president and CEO of St. Elizabeth Healthcare. “This designated fund will provide one more avenue for our community to help support St. Elizabeth’s Cancer Center as we come together to combat our region’s high cancer rates and help resident’s live longer, healthier lives. By uniting resources, St. Elizabeth and Horizon Community Funds will be able to raise the quality of life for all people in Northern Kentucky.”
Once donors have opted into the fund for their charitable giving, Horizon Community Funds executives manage the one-time or multi-year annual distribution of funds forever.
“Horizon Community Funds is honored to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving to support St. Elizabeth’s groundbreaking work in Northern Kentucky,” added Nancy Grayson, president of Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky. “This partnership is yet another example of Northern Kentuckians moving forward together to maximize our impact in the community.”
