A Message from the President of the KU Auxiliary

May 8, 2013

Dear Auxiliary Members and Friends,

This year marks our 65th year of service to The University of Kansas Medical Center and Hospital. The KUMC Auxiliary is made up of a special group of more than 100 dedicated individuals with a mission to promote and advance the well-being of both the University and the Hospital.

Members proudly and passionately advocate by organizing special events, coordinating fundraisers, producing our newsletter and contributing hundreds of volunteer hours each year. Many also dedicate their time and talents by serving as nurses, physicians, professors, and other exceptional University and Hospital employees.

While we play an important role in the life of the University and Hospital, one of our primary goals is to have fun while working toward our mission. The Auxiliary is a great opportunity to make new friends and become involved in your community.

It's an exciting time to be a part of KUMC Auxiliary.I am pleased to share highlights from the 2011/12 year, as well as our excitement about the upcoming season. Last year the Auxiliary proudly sponsored $70,000 for projects. This is a tribute to the Auxiliary's standard of excellence and to our community support of the fundraisers that make these gifts possible.

The strategic objectives for this year are to:

  • continue delivering high quality programs that attract a growing membership,
  • provide member volunteers with increased opportunities to serve, and to
  • further develop communication to provide our members with enhanced value. 

Please share a "thank you" with me.
Our success is directly related to the leadership and dedication of our members and supporters. Thank you for everything you have done for us!

Join us!
We would love for you to get involved! We value our continuing members and welcome new members to assist in sustaining this important work. To get involved, call Dorothy McGhee, our membership chair at 913.588.0188.  I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
