Sowing the seeds for the future of Moore County

Brief History of the Moore County Health Foundation

 

 

The Moore County Health Foundation was incorporated on September 25, 1996.

The original 1996 Board of Directors consisted of:

 

Brenda DeBons

Debbie Ferguson

Rhonnie Mayer

Gary Edwards

David Clark

Eric Schaefer

Weston Futrell

Dave McMurry

 

 

The Foundation's first project was to raise funds for a building to house the District ambulances in the late '90s / early '00s.

 

The project was successful, and the building that was erected still houses the District ambulances to date.

The building also houses EMS staff quarters and a classroom that District staff and community organizations use for education and training.

 

 

 

The Foundation received tax exempt 501(c)(3) status in 2007 and has been steadily growing through support of the Moore County Community.
