R. F. S. Part 11: Health Charities Worried – Mater Comments

After the post earlier this week in my Recession Fundraising Series about Health Charities being worried about donations, which I took from the Irish Medical News site in an article written by Paul Mullholland I was contacted by a representative of the the Mater Foundation to clarify their position, here is what they had to say:

Mary Moorhead, CEO from The Mater Foundation was concerned about comments attributed to her in Paul Mullhollands recent article. Mary has confirmed that she has been misquoted and is  and concerned that her section of the article is misleading. The Mater Foundation has exceeded target in 2008. With regards to the Mater Foundation’s Charity Ball they have no intention of halving the size of this event but looking at two of the Hospital appeals sharing the event i.e selling 200 tables each. This is due to extra demands coming from the Hospital and not a downsizing measure as suggested.
