The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation (Foundation) can help with personal protective equipment (PPE)! The Foundation and their COVID-19 Response Fund partnered with the PPE for Wisconsin GoFundMe campaign to provide PPE to independent practices serving vulnerable populations.
In order to rapidly distribute the PPE to areas that need it the most, the Foundation will leverage its expertise in reaching out to unaffiliated medical offices that are serving vulnerable, low-income and rural populations.
Madison-based Fenrici Brands, in collaboration with the non-profit Center for Community Stewardship, launched the GoFundMe campaign in March to purchase PPE for frontline caregivers in Wisconsin. Today, the campaign has raised nearly $20,000 from more than 140 donors and 3 organizational sponsors, gener8tor, WisMed Assure and the Wisconsin Medical Society.
Marje Murray, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation, noted “Given our mission to advance the health of the people of Wisconsin, we are excited to partner with PPE for Wisconsin to help protect those on the frontlines of this pandemic.”
Mike Zhang, CEO of Fenrici Brands, co-sponsor of the PPE for Wisconsin campaign, said “We are grateful for those donors who are supporting our doctors, nurses and other frontline caregivers. We are excited to have the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation take the helm in purchasing and distributing the PPE to frontline caregivers.”
