Matthew 25 Health and Dental Clinic of Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been awarded a $40,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne for general operating support of the clinic.
This generous grant will be used to further the mission of Matthew 25 Health and Dental Clinic. As the region’s only full-time safety-net health organization that operates at no cost to patients, we are reliant and grateful for this support. “General operating grants are so vital to service organizations like ours,” says Mark Dixon, Chief Executive Officer Matthew 25 Clinic, “because the state of the facility and the quality of staff directly impact patient care.”
Matthew 25 Clinic provides medical, dental, and vision care to people who are uninsured and live at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. In the last fiscal year, the clinic served over 30,500 patient visits by a staff of 32 employees and over 550 volunteers. Donations are 100% tax deductible.
