Cody Regional Health Foundation was originally established as West Park
Hospital Foundation in June 17, 1998 as a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization.
Gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible. In December of 2017 the West
Park Hospital District Board of Trustees voted to update the business
name from West Park Hospital to Cody Regional Health to encompass their
broad services and campuses. The Foundation followed suit to ensure that
they best represented the organization and patients that they serve.
The Cody Regional Health Foundation encourages philanthropic contributions
from individuals, corporations, foundations and other organizations in
support of activities and programs of Cody Regional Health.
The mission of the Foundation is to provide philanthropic support to Cody
Regional Health for programs, services and equipment to assure the highest
quality of patient-centered care and enhance the quality of health in
our community. The Foundation will encourage contributions of gifts and
grants of money, and property, to the Foundation; more specifically to
establish and maintain endowments and other funds to support any programs
or services of Cody Regional Health.
Responsibility for governance of the Foundation is vested in its Board
of Directors. The Directors provide financial support, advice and counsel
to the Foundation on a broad range of issues, leadership for the Foundation’s
fund-raising activities, and help interpret the needs of Cody Regional
Health. In addition, the Board of Directors elect the officers of the
Foundation, establish the Foundation’s operating and investment
policies, and approve all budgets and major expenditures.
Foundation operations are managed by the Foundation Director, which is
responsible for all fund-raising, donor relations, and related matters
in addition to the management of all funds and is committed to ensuring
ethical stewardship of the Foundation’s resources.
