The Gregory Kistler Treatment Center was one of the first organizations to apply for a grant back in 2012.
They received $48,960 to fund therapy services for uninsured children.
Words do not adequately express our appreciation for The Degen Foundation’s commitment to community and to helping those less fortunate. Jennifer Kistler, Executive Director, states, “The Gregory Kistler Treatment Center is pleased to have been the recipient of grant awards to benefit our families who are uninsured or underinsured and to provide equipment and technology support. We are thankful for The Degen Foundation.”

August 23, 2018: We had a visit from former Degen Scholarship Recipient - Khem Nouansavane today. This very special young man, who has been recently hired by Mercy Cardiology Clinic, is a Nurse Practitioner with a most giving heart. He decided to give a "little something" back to The Degen Foundation by donating $1,000.00!!! We will be establishing a Scholarship Fund in his name. Thank you, Khem. Your gift means the world to us.
