A Message From The Chair
From time-to-time a project comes along that is life changing – an endeavor that is so compelling and important…and that will have such a positive impact on so many…that being a part of it is absolutely the right thing to do. That is what the KIDS Campaign for Broward Health is for me, and the reason that I have agreed to serve as Chairman of this very important campaign to raise $20.6 million for the renovation and expansion of the children’s hospital at Broward Health Medical Center.
My name is George Taylor, and I am an attorney with the law firm of Brinkley Morgan and a member of the Broward Health Foundation Board of Directors. As you can imagine, in this capacity I have been intimately involved in the development of this project, and in creating the blueprint that will serve as the plan for the successful completion of this effort…but meeting this challenge will not be easy. It will not only require the hard work of many volunteers, but also an extraordinary philanthropic commitment by the community.
In fact, the KIDS Campaign is so important to me, my family, and the community, that I have agreed to not only Chair this campaign, but my family and I have decided to lead by example and issue a $10 million challenge to the community to join us in bringing this dream into reality. Our family foundation – the Salah Foundation – will make a $10 million gift to this project, provided that the community – through its generosity – commits another $10 million to match our gift, dollar-for-dollar, over the next few years.
As Chair of this endeavor, I am proud to be a part of this very important community effort to provide the best possible place for our children and their families to turn to when they need our help. You can rest assured that I have completely dedicated myself to its successful completion, but know that I cannot do this alone and that only with your support we will be able to continue the extraordinary tradition of our children’s hospital, and respond to an ever-changing health care environment.
George J. Taylor, Esq.
A Special Mission for Broward Health
Through the KIDS Campaign, Broward Health will be able to improve the childrens hospital facilities to match the expertise provided by our medical teams. For far too long, we’ve been providing the best surgical and recovery care in an environment that doesn’t completely meet the needs of our patients’ families. The Broward Health Foundation has therefore launched a capital campaign to raise more than $20 million to renovate and expand the children’s hospital, in turn providing our child patients and their families with many of the comforts of home so that their true focus can be on getting well.
The Power of One Gift
Every gift — large or small — to the KIDS Campaign will help us expand and improve the patient rooms and playrooms to offer more space for children to play, to discover their new world within the hospital, to have fun, and to relax so they are receptive and cooperative to their medical care. Every gift will help us provide parents with an environment to nurture their child, to discuss his care, to laugh, to cry, to be together to help their child get well. Every gift will help us create an environment that is best-in class for comfort, security and efficiency.
That’s the power of one gift.
