health-exchangePeak Vista Community Health Centers Foundation recently received a $1 million endowment gift from longtime Colorado Springs resident and philanthropist, Margot Lane.

To be paid over the next four years, the donation will be placed into Peak Vista’s BJ Scott Endowment Fund, helping Peak Vista continue to provide health services to families in the community in perpetuity.

“I made this gift to the BJ Scott Endowment Fund to ensure that Peak Vista will remain a sustainable organization into the future,” Lane said. “By giving to an endowment, the assets will grow and the fund will provide support in perpetuity to families in our region.”

“We are incredibly thankful for Margot’s continued support of Peak Vista,” said Pam McManus, president and CEO of Peak Vista Community Health Centers. “Her generosity directly contributes to the health and well-being of our community.”

This marks the third large donation Lane has given Peak Vista. In 2011, Lane and the John E. and Margaret L. Lane Foundation donated $4 million to UCCS and Peak Vista to build the Lane Center for Academic Health Sciences building on North Nevada Avenue, now home to Peak Vista’s Lane Family Health Center.

The Lane Family Health Center offers preventive routine exams, same-day treatment of acute illness and injury, as well as ongoing primary care and follow-up for people who have chronic health conditions.

“I am honored to be part of the Lane Center. It’s wonderful to see how the community is embracing it,” said Dr. Scott Robinson, Peak Vista’s family residency program director.

From 2009-2011, Lane also contributed generously to Peak Vista’s Community Benefit Initiative, a capital fundraising campaign to build a Homeless Health Center on Rio Grande, a Health Center on Wahsatch and remodel and expand capacity at the Pediatric and Dental Health Centers at International Circle.
