Celebrating 25 Years of Philanthropy


Published on 12/16/2020

For the last 25 years, First Hand has changed the lives of nearly 600,000 people in 93 countries around the world. As Cerner’s corporate nonprofit, we have worked to close the gaps in health care and build healthier generations.

Cerner President, Don Trigg, joins us in celebrating our rich, philanthropic history.

“It has been said that the farther you look back, the farther ahead you are able to see. As part of their 25th anniversary, the Foundation has created an anniversary book that I am excited to share with each of you. It tells the stories surrounding the creation of the Foundation, details the initial programs that brought its mission to life and, most importantly, frames the impact that your contributions have had on children around the world.”

We’re pleased to present our digital 25th anniversary book!
