The Lund Report Announces 2015 Challenge Grant

The grant, which coincides with our six year anniversary, gives The Lund Report the opportunity to expand its horizon and provide you, our readers, with the most timely and critical information about Oregon’s healthcare industry as the system evolves to become more transparent and accountable.

As we embark on our sixth year of providing you – our faithful readers – with the most important and timely information about Oregon’s healthcare industry, we’re extremely excited to announce a $50,000 challenge grant.

One of our most devoted supporters, who prefers to remain anonymous, is offering to match each and every dollar up to $50,000 over the next six months. We couldn’t have asked for more generous support.

These dollars will go very far in taking The Lund Report to the next level where we can not only stay on top of the latest health policy developments, but focus on more intensive projects, giving you – our readers – insights into issues that you won’t find elsewhere.

As we expand, you’ll feel closer to the pressing issues facing our healthcare system such as the consolidation of hospitals, evidenced most recently by Silverton Hospital’s decision to enter into a contractual relationship with Legacy Health.

Your contribution also keeps investigational journalism alive in our community.

Naturally, we value any and all contributions no matter the amount. However, this challenge grant comes with special conditions. We’re on the lookout for new donors – people who read our stories each and every week but haven’t had the opportunity yet to make a donation.

And, if you’re already one of our faithful donors, any increase in your annual contribution also counts toward this matching grant.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today by mailing your check to The Lund Report at POB 82841, Portland 97282 and I’ll be pleased to send along a receipt for tax purposes since we’re recognized as a 501-C-3 by the IRS. Or, if you prefer, you can use your credit card by logging onto our site – – and clicking the Donate button.

As this fund-raising drive progresses, we’ll let you know how we’re doing. And, if you have any questions or are interested in making a special gift, please contact Janet Grubel, our development director, at [email protected].

Thanks for believing in what we do. Your wonderful support makes it possible for us to remain the most vital source of health news in Oregon. And we never intend to stray from that path!
