Despite the economic downturn, Interplast increased donations by 25 percent over previous years.
When we closed the fiscal year on Tuesday, our donors and supporters had helped us reach $4.4 million to transform lives around the world. In FY08, our cash revenue total was $3.5 million.
“Our job at Interplast is to make sure that, even in these challenging economic times, our patients do not suffer from lack of care. For the desperately poor who need medical care, every day is a struggle, whether we are in a recession or not. We are deeply grateful to our donors for helping us meet their surgical needs," said Susan W. Hayes, Interplast president and CEO.
"This increase, an incredible achievement, happened because of our supporters, our committed board and because Interplast is a healthy organization with strong leadership, a clear mission and purpose, and programmatic integrity," said Nicole Friedland, Interplast's chief development officer.
As we enter our new fiscal year, we are hopeful this support will continue to grow allowing us to reach the many patients around the world waiting for help. To all our donors and supporters who made this possible, thank you!
