The Wilbur May Foundation recently announced a $5 million gift to Renown Health Foundation.
The gift marks the first major donation to support the newly formed Renown Children’s Hospital Endowment Fund.
Endowment funds are invested, and each year a portion of the fund’s income will be used as a steady stream of support for the Renown Children’s Hospital, while the rest is re-invested to preserve and grow the original gift.
In honor of the donation, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit are currently under renovation. The two major units are moving from the Sierra Tower to the Tahoe Tower at Renown Regional Medical Center.
The foundation comprised of family relatives, continues to enhance Wilbur’s vision. The foundation has made numerous gifts to Renown Children’s Hospital over the years, including supporting the current PICU and the children’s kidney dialysis program among others.
