Message from the President

A Special Message from Liz Kolcun, President

Liz Kolcun, PresidentThank you for being part of a year of exceptional healthcare made possible by your generosity to MarinHealth Foundation. In 2023, 1,135 donors invested a total of $7.5 million in the health and well-being of their fellow North Bay residents by making gifts to the Foundation. The innovations showcased on this website are just a few examples of how contributions like yours are making a difference.

As an independent, nonprofit community healthcare system, MarinHealth relies on philanthropy to elevate its programs and services. Leading edge equipment, new initiatives that reach more patients, state-of-the-art technology — anything exceeding the hospital’s operating budget is possible only because you choose to give.

In 2024, we are raising funds for an Eclipse™ Treatment Planning System which enables specialists to create an individualized treatment plan that makes radiation therapy safe, effective, and accurate for cancer patients. We are also raising money to provide Cydar Medical AI Technology for Vascular Medicine for state-of-the-art care for abdominal aortic aneurysms. More information on these and other priorities can be found on our Funding Priorities page on our website.

We are deeply grateful to you for being part of our Foundation family, and for helping MarinHealth care for members of our North Bay community as though they were the most important people in the world. To us, they are.

With gratitude,
Liz Kolcun
President & Chief Development Officer
