Lander Launches a Free Medical Clinic to Serve the Uninsured
- Local Champion: Lander Free Medical Clinic
- Date Funded: December 16, 2021
- Grant Amount: $1,200
Roughly 14 percent of Lander residents don’t have health insurance, so often their only access to medical treatment is through an emergency room for crisis intervention. The Lander Free Medical Clinic will provide medical services—free primary prevention and wellness services, as well as free outpatient non-emergency acute and chronic primary care—to Lander’s uninsured. But to raise enough funds to begin serving Lander’s uninsured, the clinic needed a digital fundraising tool. LOR’s support helped purchase a year’s subscription to Network for Good, fundraising software for small nonprofits.
This project is fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation.
