Funding Priorities

The Foundation is proud to promote excellence in perinatal health care for women, babies, and families through its funding priorities. They include:

  • Myrtle Bahm Leonard Memorial Scholarship
    The Myrtle Bahm Leonard Memorial Award was established as a tribute to the wife of Thomas A. Leonard, MD, after her death in 1987. The award is comprised of three annual scholarships totaling $10,000, which help fund childcare expenses for deserving students at Madison College, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Recipients of the scholarships are enrolled in health-related fields and are selected through an application process at each institution.

    Since 1994, more than 45 students and their children have benefited from the financial support provided by the Myrtle Bahm Leonard Award and the legacy of her generous and caring spirit.
