The Percy Fund: The Power of Endowments

An endowment to Mid Coast Hospital is a donation given whereby the principal amount can never be touched. The income from the interest is used as specified by the donor—either unrestricted (used where it’s needed most) or restricted for a particular purpose.


The Percy Fund is an endowment originally donated in 1976 by Eleanor Irish, the only child of Captain Samuel R. Percy and Lucy Tobey Percy of Bath. The original gift amount of $1.6 million was so prudently invested that is has been able to provide $4.2 million in free care for those without the ability to pay for healthcare. The interest from that bequest has also provided $2.2 million to support the operations of Mid Coast Hospital. The original gift of $1.6 million still remains intact. Only the interest has been used, supporting healthcare in our region at an astounding amount of $6.4 million. The legacy of the Percy family lives on every day at Mid Coast Hospital.

What is your legacy? To discuss making a gift that will live on in perpetuity, contact Kara Johnson, Director of Development, Mid Coast Health Services at 373-6065 or karajohnson@midcoasthealth.com.
