G.N. Wilcox, for whom Wilcox Memorial Hospital was named, was known for his generous philanthropic spirit. His philosophy was "The more I give away, the richer I get." In addition to the many financial contributions he made while he was alive, G.N. established a trust fund "to carry on or assist in any kind of public, charitable, educational, or religious work, and for the aid and advancement of the public health and morals." And so, Wilcox Health was founded on philanthropy. His nieces, Elsie and Mabel, along with their brother Gaylord founded the hospital with funds from the G.N. Wilcox Trust and contributions from the community. There are four Wilcox Trusts, G.N., S.W., Mabel, and Elsie, which continue to support the hospital's capital needs and programs.
You can ensure the future of a healthy Kaua‘i through gifts to the Wilcox Health Foundation. All funds raised on Kaua‘i, stay on Kaua‘i. These gifts will be applied to a program of your choice or you may designate it to go "where the need is greatest."
