Thank You, Kirk
"Kirk and Anne Douglas are some of the largest donors in the history of MPTF giving, with over $40 million of lifetime philanthropy. We will never be able to thank them enough for all that they have done.” -Jeffrey Katzenberg
Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas celebrates his 100th birthday on December 9, 2016, and we couldn't be happier to celebrate one of our closest and most cherished friends and allies. In addition to his incredible accomplishments as an actor and producer, Kirk and his wife, Anne, are among MPTF's largest donors and, as generous humanitarians, are an example for us all.
In 1992, Kirk and Anne created Harry's Haven for Alzheimer's care on campus, which has since become a major part of MPTF for 25 years. Happy Birthday, Kirk Douglas!
“Anne and I created Harry’s Haven in 1992 because we wanted to help families in the entertainment community struggling to care for and comfort their loved ones who have Alzheimer’s. What MPTF has done at Harry’s Haven over the past 25 years never ceases to amaze me. We wanted visitors as well as patients to experience a warm and loving environment, and MPTF has fulfilled our wishes admirably." -Kirk Douglas
