Samuel W. Chairs, Jr.
Ensuring Good Work Can Continue
Giving back to his community always played a large role in Samuel W. Chairs, Jr.’s life. The father of seven children, grandfather of 20, and great grandfather of six, wanted to pass along his spirit of philanthropy, so he created a $1 million endowment, The Samuel and Patricia Chairs, Jr. Endowment Fund, to benefit nine of his favorite charities. Mercy Medical Center is one of these institutions. It was experiences of Sam and his wife at Mercy, that inspired him to include Mercy in his endowment. Sam’s daughter Pamela explained, “My family and I have personally experienced Mercy’s compassionate care. Thanks to my Dad’s generosity, I can help ensure that this type of good work can continue.”
