Community Cancer Center Foundation in Normal merges with Carle Center for Philanthropy

Community Cancer Center Foundation in Normal merges with Carle Center for Philanthropy
As part of the merger with Carle Health, the Community Cancer Center Foundation in Normal integrated with the Carle Center for Philanthropy on January 1, 2021. All donations, funds and assets designated for programs and services at the Carle Cancer Institute Normal will continue to support purposes identified by donors.
 
The Community Cancer Center Foundation started as a support to the cancer center in Normal when it opened in the late 1990s. Carle Health’s acquisition of the Community Cancer Center in October 2020 resulted in a name change to Carle Cancer Institute Normal. Carle Center for Philanthropy, founded in 1977, supports the mission of Carle Health.
 
“We are excited to partner with Carle Center for Philanthropy and continue the passion and gratitude of donors supporting services at the Carle Cancer institute Normal,” Joe Prosser, Director of Carle Cancer Institute Normal, said.
 
“Rest assured, gifts made to support local programs and services will stay local,” Shelleigh Birlingmair, vice president of development for Carle BroMenn Medical Center and Carle Eureka Hospital, said. “Donors may see a slight change in the process for giving, but the mission remains the same—providing high-quality care to anyone who walks through our doors.”
 
Community members serving on the Community Cancer Center Foundation board will remain involved in an advisory capacity. “It’s incredibly important that local community members are there to provide input on philanthropic matters,” Birlingmair said.
