2020 Donor Journal 

"The heroes are those who choose to step up for the greater good." 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many things came to a halt in 2020, but the need for great health care didn't stop. Thanks to you, neither did the incredible team at UnityPoint Health – Des Moines. You made all the difference with your very generous gifts.

The outpouring of support from our community for our Health Care Heroes has been nothing short of amazing. You know this has not been an easy time and you showed up every step of the way!

While we know 2020 presented many challenges, we still have so much to celebrate. Please know your generosity in support of UnityPoint Health – Des Moines gave strength to patients like Sue, a COVID-19 survivor, who said:

"When we talk about essential jobs, these are clearly the only ones I can think of that mattered to me. It's amazing that these nurses and doctors truly risked their lives, every day to take care of me. They have families at home, and are tired themselves, but they show up, every day, to save people's lives. They saved my life."

Each and every year, you help our organization bring the best in comfort and care to our patients. Every one of your gifts make a difference, and that was especially true this past year. Thanks to all of you, in 2020, UnityPoint Health – Des Moines:

  • Opened the new Blank Children's STAR and Developmental Center to provide our most vulnerable children the extra support they need to grow and thrive.
  • Created a COVID-19 CrisisFund that helped ourHealth Care Heroes dealwith the day-to-day stresses of treating the highest number of COVID-19 patients and families in Des Moines during this pandemic. ProvidedfreemealstocancerpatientsthroughthenewMealsthatMatterprogramatJohnStoddardCancer Center.
  • Supported Blank Children's Child Life Program that helped thousands of kids who were patients in the hospital.
  • Provided quality health care to thousands of patients and families needing care at our William C. Knapp Emergency Department & Trauma Center & Critical Care Units.

As the leadership of the Foundation, we are proud to report that you – our donors and families – matter to our community. Together you made an incredible impact. The results speak for themselves: nearly 6,600 donors generously made over 10,000 gifts totaling $9.7 million to the Foundation in 2020. In addition, the Foundation provided over $11.1 million in funding for programs and services that benefited literally hundreds of thousands of people last year.

Outstanding health care depends on strong donor support like yours, year after year. We are proud to say that 100% of your gifts benefit the programs and services you choose to support. The UnityPoint Health – Des Moines family would not be what it is today without the generosity and compassion of people like you.

Please accept our deepest appreciation for your very generous support last year. Words cannot express our gratitude or fully share the impact the generosity you have had.
