Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • March 11, 2009 Ridgewood Bolger Foundation Challenge: BVMI to match $100K The Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative, Inc. Board of Trustees has accepted a challenge gift from The Bolger Foundation in Ridgewood that requires $100,000 to be raised by April 1. There are still a few weeks left to participate in this dollar-for-dollar match of all new money contributed to BVMI during the first quarter 2009. The match also includes pledges made by April 1, 2009 and payable by April 1, 2011. Marketable securities at their fair market value less costs and expenses of liquidation will count. “We wish you the best of luck on your fundraising efforts,” stated Trustee J. T. Bolger in announcing the grant. “Obviously, the trustees of The Bolger Foundation are very favorably impressed by the operations and the goals of the Bergen Volunteer Medical, Initiative, Inc.” BVMI, a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, plans to provide free primary medical care to Bergen County residents who earn between 100 percent and 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Patients will be seen by volunteer physicians and other health care professionals by appointment in a health care center to be established in Hackensack, by autumn 2009. The challenge follows an earlier check for $100,000 received from The Bolger Foundation. “The confidence in our project expressed by The Bolger Foundation goes a long way to meeting the goal of opening our health care center this year,” said Janet Finke, co-chair of the BVMI Fundraising Committee. “Especially during these difficult economic times, such generosity has even greater impact on our ability to go forward. We are extremely grateful.” To participate in The Bolger Foundation Challenge, please send a contribution to BVMI, Box 337, Hackensack, NJ 07602-0337. To contribute on-line, visit www. Contributions must be received by April 1, 2009. Every dollar will be matched by The Bolger Foundation if the goal of $100,000 is raised. It is an all or none grant. Remember that every dollar counts for two. “Many friends of BVMI have responded to the challenge,” said Marilyn Schotz, co-chair of fundraising. “We anticipate that many more will join us as we near the homestretch, and we extend our sincere thanks to all who participate.” Finke and Schotz are residents of Wyckoff as is Samuel Cassell, MD, founding chair and chair, Campaign for BVMI. Other board members include Glen Rock resident David I. Roth, MD, and Ridgewood residents Michael W. Azzara, MBA, and Peggy Sullivan, treasurer.
