Public Glen Rose Medical Center web site has a donate now button for the Private Marks Foundation

4 April 2011 at 7:27:39 PM

I was looking around the Glen Rose Medical Center web site and noticed that there is a Marks Foundation section at the top in white.

When you point to that part, the menu opens up and shows three options: Mission, Ways to Give, & Donate Now

1. Why does the Glen Rose Medical Center, a public entity, have a link to a single non-profit organization?

2. Why does the Ways to Give point to an actual place on the Glen Rose Medical Center web site where the foundation has its own page?

3. Why is there a DONATE NOW button on the Glen Rose Medical Center web site for the Marks Foundation?

4. Why is there ANY mention of the Marks Foundation on the publically owned Glen Rose Medical Center's web site?


I'll tell you the why for all four of these questions...the good ole boy network still rules. Mike Ford, County Judge, used to run the Marks Foundation  and last I knew he was still on the board.
It's no wonder the County business is now mixed with the Private a reminder the Marks Foundation is a PRIVATE foundation, not a PUBLIC foundation!

Looks like they changed the menu at the top to point to the marks foundation web site but the content for the marks foundation still exists on the GRMC web site but there are no links to it. are telling other non-profits you don't want their help, just the Marks foundation by doing this, of course since Gary Marks STILL runs the place what else should we expect except favoritism and bias?

I disagree with you, Paul. What's wrong with a private foundation raising money for a public entity? Also, The Marks Foundation probably is the ONLY private foundation in existence that supports GRMC. Afterall, this is a very small community.
