Donations to the Annual Fund are undesignated and applied to the area of greatest need for Southern Ohio Medical Center and our community. Undesignated funds are the backbone of the SOMC Development Foundation, allowing us to allocate the funds when and where they will have the greatest impact, responding to challenges and new opportunities as they arise.
Breast Cancer Compassion Fund
The Breast Cancer Compassion Fund is dedicated to assisting those who are battling breast cancer. Donations will help these patients by providing transportation to and from treatment, purchasing scarves, wigs and any other items they may need. Donations to this fund are not limited to helping only in these areas, and can be used towards any other need a patient may have.
Cancer Compassion Fund
Donating to the Cancer Compassion Fund will help those who have been affected by cancer. Whether it is helping with their travel, every day expenses or even assisting in purchasing their medications, any donation will surely make a difference.
