Tanner Medical Foundation is currently in a capital campaign thanks to a generous community donor who has pledged a matching gift campaign and will match dollar for dollar up to $500,000 in support of Tanner Cancer Care.

“Being able to give back to our community is one of the seven cooperative principles that Carroll EMC is founded on,” said Carroll EMC Board of Directors Chairman Eddie Gore. “This new facility will help thousands of individuals in our local communities over the years.”

As a non-profit healthcare system, the generous contributions made by community partners like Carroll EMC are critical in expanding patient access and enhancing the services and care provided through Tanner.

About Carroll EMC: Carroll EMC was formed in 1936 by a group of farmers coming together to bring electricity to their rural farms. Today, Carroll EMC is still operated by the same cooperative principles. The organization is owned by the members it serves, and each member can vote in favor of how the cooperative operates. They provide electricity to approximately 54,000 homes and businesses and the co-op serves members in Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Paulding, Polk, Floyd, and Troup counties. It is not-for-profit and returns excess profits to members annually through capital credit checks.
