West Springs Hospital is proud to announce that Greg Poschman has been named the 2018 Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals/Colorado Chapter for his accomplishments on behalf Building Sanctuary | Rebuilding Lives, the Campaign to build the new West Springs Hospital. Poschman received the award at this year’s annual National Philanthropy Day event in Denver.
Through Poschman’s efforts a challenge grant was created and is nearing its $4,000,000 goal to raise the final dollars for the new West Springs Hospital. Poschman, an Emmy-winning filmmaker and Pitkin County Commissioner, inspired and motivated generous Roaring Fork Valley and Eagle County donors to develop a dollar-for-dollar matching grant to double campaign contributions.
“We have some very important challenges here on the western slope of Colorado and I realize that I can’t sit on the sidelines any longer, I need to be involved “says Poschman. “I’d like to inspire and encourage everyone to make a commitment, to do something for others. “Once you commit to it, all sorts of fantastic things happen.”
The new, private, not-for-profit West Springs Hospital offers state-of-the-art treatment in emergency and non-emergency situations, and has doubled in size with a capacity now of up to 64 patients. A world-class healing environment, it remains the only psychiatric hospital on Colorado’s Western Slope.
