Atlanta donors rally around Grady Health System

ATLANTA, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Grady Health System today announced that the Greater Grady Campaign has secured $11.5 million in new donations. The contributions, from three well-known Atlanta-based companies and an anonymous donor, will help drive a five-year plan to modernize healthcare delivery at Grady, including necessary upgrades to equipment, information technology and facilities that will lay the groundwork for Grady to expand its life-saving services.

"We thank these four organizations for their generous support of the Greater Grady Campaign. Their support is a testament to the important role Grady plays in our region's health care system and their belief that Grady is headed in the right direction," said Tom Bell, chair of the Greater Grady Campaign and Chairman and CEO of Cousins Properties. "I think everyone involved with the Campaign is delighted with the success we've had so far."

"The Greater Grady Campaign" received support from the following local donors:

  • Anonymous: $5 million
  • Georgia Power Company: $3 million
  • Cox Enterprises: $2.5 million
  • Georgia-Pacific: $1 million

The Greater Grady Campaign kicked off in January 2009 following a generous $200 million lead gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation. With the $11.5 million donations, the Campaign has raised $265 million toward the overall $325 million goal.
