The Harvest Foundation was established in 2002 from the sale of Memorial Hospital and is committed to honoring the legacy of the hospital by being good stewards of the foundation's assets. We believe the key to improving our community's health, educational opportunity and quality of life is a strategy focused on building and maintaining economic prosperity for the entire community. By supporting organizations and projects that drive economic growth, we will together overcome any current or future challenges facing our community.
