In 2000, the Paulding County Hospital Foundation, an independent, not for profit public charity was established. The purpose of the Foundation is to support the hospital in improving the health and well being of residents in our community. The main philanthropic activity of the organization is the awarding of scholarships. Since 2002, through membership support and various fundraising events throughout the year, contributions have been collected and using these funds and interest, senior scholarships have been awarded to Paulding County students seeking a healthcare career. Forty-six scholarships have been awarded up to the year 2013. Several scholarships recipients have already returned to begin their healthcare career at Paulding County Hospital.
The official membership drive is held in early spring every year but anyone is welcome to join our Foundation at any time. If you have any questions, please call 419-399-1138.
