The Amon G. Carter Foundation of Fort Worth Contributes $150,000 to the Working Wonders Campaign
In support of UTMB’s patient care and educational enterprises, the Amon G. Carter Foundation of Fort Worth has contributed $150,000 toward construction of the new Jennie Sealy Hospital. Three patient rooms will be named for the Amon G. Carter Foundation to honor the foundation’s generosity.
“The Amon G. Carter Foundation awarded this gift because we value the care that UTMB provides to the region and recognize the outstanding education and training that UTMB offers future health care professionals,” said the foundation’s John Robinson, executive vice president—grant administration.
The foundation is no stranger to supporting UTMB through its philanthropy. Previous contributions have supported the Save Old Red initiative, construction of the Center on Environmental Toxicology labs and expansion of the Blocker Burn Unit.
The foundation was established in 1945 by Amon G. Carter. It was founded on a principle which Mr. Carter himself expressed so well: “I have come to realize that they who acquire wealth are more or less stewards in the application of that wealth to others of the human family who are less fortunate than themselves.”
“UTMB is grateful to the Amon G. Carter Foundation for its generosity through the years and we are very appreciative of its latest gift, made as part of the Working Wonders Campaign, that will help make the Jennie Sealy Hospital a reality,” said UTMB President Dr. David Callender.
