The Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce the grant award to the EZRA Free Clinic in the amount of $12,500 for breast cancer detection and screening mammograms from the McCune Endowment. The mission of the EZRA Free Clinic is a facility that provides services without charge to individuals who are otherwise unable to pay for the services. Services are free due to physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals that volunteer their time to provide quality medical services and generous individuals, businesses, and organizations who provide contributions of cash, supplies pharmaceuticals, and equipment.

The grant award comes from the Robert F. McCune Endowment. The Endowment was created to carry on the same tradition of compassion embodied by its namesake Robert McCune. The Robert F. McCune Endowment is a restricted endowment consisting of a single unified fund of resources where the investment income is dispersed to assist the cancer patients, facilities, and programs of the City of Ottumwa and Wapello County.

At the Ottumwa Legacy Foundation, we recognize and embrace the critical role that we can play in the community as a catalyst for positive change. We are doing this by initiating and advancing promising ideas, making grants, convening conversations, promoting collaboration, providing sound information, and celebrating success.

Proposals made to the Robert F. McCune Endowment are reviewed by the McCune Endowment Advisory Committee. Applications are accepted at any time. To learn more visit https://www.ottumwalegacy.org/for-grantees-scholars/robert-mccune-endowment/
