Community Hospital Anderson made the first major gift to the Madison County Community Foundation in the form of a $250,000 endowment that brought a $125,000 matching gift.

A few years ago, Charles Dickmann made an offer that his fellow Rotarians couldn’t refuse. He pledged to match, dollar for dollar, gifts of $1,000 to create the Anderson Rotary Club Endowment within the Madison County Community Foundation.
