The medical center is fortunate to have several champions in our community. The Foundation works hand-in-hand with the following groups to pursue and fulfill their fundraising goals that benefit the Medical Center.
In the early 1970s, a group of 46 ladies met and founded the Elizabeth Guild Auxiliary. Named in honor of Elizabeth Knutsson, for whom the original hospital was named, this group of ladies started a nearly new shop to raise funds. As of 2013, the Elizabeth Guild Thrift Shop has raised over $3.5 million for the Medical Center.
Estes Park has one of the world's oldest and most active Quota International chapters. The group hosts several community fundraising events including the Medical Equipment Loan Closet, Taste of Estes and Holiday Home Tour which combined have helped to purchase 18 new ambulances over the last 25 years.
Trail Ridge Quilters
The Trail Ridge Quilters create and sell beautiful hand-crafted quilted items and donate the proceeds to the Medical Center. Applications from various departments are submitted for equipment purchases that assist physicians and staff with providing the very best patient care.
