Enloe Donors Make a Difference

Helping Vaccinate Our Community Against COVID-19Ken Grossman and Katie Gonser

The donors who give to the Enloe Foundation change lives every day. Their generosity helps improve critical medical services, facilities, and programs that enhance the health of our community and offer hope to those Enloe Medical Center serves.

Now that COVID-19 vaccinations are becoming available, donors are once again making an impact.

To help with this effort, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Founder Ken Grossman and his wife, Katie Gonser, have established a matching grant in the amount of $750,000 at the Enloe Foundation. The couple will match every dollar given, up to $750,000.Golden Valley Bank team with Enloe Senior Team

President and CEO of Golden Valley Bank Mark Francis, pictured on the right, answered the call with the first matched gift of $75,000.

“Our economy needs a good shot in the arm! Getting as many folks vaccinated as soon as possible is the best way to get past this pandemic,” Mark said. “We encourage our business community to answer Ken and Katie’s call to get our community vaccinated and our economy back on track.”

Our sincerest thank you to him and Dan Gonzales for Meriam Park’s contribution of space for our vaccine clinic and a cash donation of $75,000 from Fifth Sun.

Fifth Sun and Enloe's Senior Team“In addition to the health and wellness of community members during COVID-19, I hope for the economic health of local businesses and their ability to weather this pandemic,” said Dan, pictured on the right.

“Owning four businesses with over 400 employees, I have personally felt the challenges many businesses face during COVID-19.  I believe our path toward recovery begins with the vaccination of as many people as fast as possible. I encourage other businesses to join us and help remove the financial constraints Enloe faces in its efforts to vaccinate our population as quickly as we can.”
