2013 Annual Report reflects on Sandi Van Scoyoc's legacy
The HNH Foundation's 2013 Annual Report, published April 8, 2014, reflects on Sandi Van Scoyoc's 15years as President of the Foundation. In her farewell message, Sandi offers her "wish list" for the health and wellbeing of New Hampshire's children, including the wish that "New Hampshire will match our neighbors to the south (Massachusetts) who have a 1% uninsured rate for their children."
Board Chair Martha McLeod's message noted that "the Board is committed to continuing Sandi’s legacy of focusing on community needs and promoting collaboration. 2014 will be a year of self-reflection in which we will explore opportunities for having the greatest impact with our resources. We’re in a good place for this transition. We have a capable Interim President in Patti Baum, our funding goals and processes are well established, and our grantees are doing valuable work.
"It is extremely gratifying for the Board to see the Foundation’s investments pay off," Martha notes. "The passage of Medicaid expansion by the New Hampshire Legislature this spring gave us much cause for celebration. In 2013, the HNH Foundation devoted substantial financial and staff resources to expanding health care coverage for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable families and children. We are delighted and proud that those efforts are bearing fruit."
