Trust for Our Future


Ukiah Valley Medical Center recently received a $100,000 bequest from an anonymous donor.

According to Allyne Brown, director of philanthropy, “With our plans to expand moving ahead, this is perfect timing,” referring to the donation and UVMCs plans to expand the emergency department and intensive care unit within the next year. “The donor, who wants to remain anonymous, is providing these funds to help fund a medication room, a physician dictation room and two garden areas that will be located around the hospital campus,” continued Brown.

Even though the donor prefers to remain anonymous, the reason for the gift is because of a whole hearted belief that UVMC is improving and looking at helping to sustain the future of health care in Mendocino County.

Brown also shared, “Creating a bequest is easier than you might think. It is a gift that usually takes place after the passing of the individual donor and can be used for a specific purpose or be left in memory of the donor.”
