Morris Lenczicki Appointed Treasurer Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees
February 01, 2012 - Children's Specialized Hospital

Morris Lenczicki, vice president of industrial systems applications for L’Oreal USA, based in Clark, was recently appointed to serve as treasurer of the Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees. Lenczicki currently chairs the board’s finance committee, and sits on the executive, investment and compensation committees.
 
Lenczicki joined the board as a trustee in 2009. He recounts his personal experiences with patients, therapists, and staff members as proof of the impact the hospital has on volunteers.
 
Lenczicki’s connection with Children’s Specialized began when L’Oreal USA sought a charity to benefit from a corporate fundraiser. The company chose Children’s Specialized, and Lenczicki spearheaded the effort, with a team of 80 L’Oreal USA employees, to host L’Oreal USA’s first “Fore the Children” golf outing in 2008. The outing has since become one of the largest and most successful annual golf events, expanding to accommodate sold-out crowds of 800 and raising $1.5 million for the hospital. Funds have been used to renovate a physical therapy gym, open a new outpatient center.  
 
Inspired by the event, and with Lenczicki’s leadership, employees at L’Oreal USA have SINCE volunteered thousands of hours through service days and events at the hospital. Each golf outing is followed by a tour at Children’s Specialized, where employees can see first-hand the difference their efforts have made.
 
As treasurer, Lenczicki will oversee the financial operations of the Foundation which raised $6.8 million in 2011, to support the pediatric rehabilitation programs and services of the hospital. The majority of gifts were designated for special projects like the opening of new outpatient centers in Toms River and Clifton expanding the hospital’s ability to improve access to care for clients across the state. Unlike acute care hospitals, Children’s Specialized does not receive government funding to care for patients who are uninsured or underinsured. Last year, over $1 million was raised by the Foundation to provide care for children whose rehabilitation was not covered by insurance. The Foundation is ranked among the top six pediatric hospital foundations in the nation.
 
With many goals in mind, Lenczicki will continue to apply his knowledge of business and financial experience to the non-profit organization, ensuring the Foundation is able to expand and grow.
 
“I want to continue to provide as much opportunity for others to learn about Children's Specialized Hospital, and give the patients a chance to reach their fullest potential,” said Lenczicki.
 
Lenczicki resides in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife, Joan and their three children.
