Norman Harty Donates Over $8.4 Million!

Moolah Shriner Left the Substantial Gift in His Estate

Shriners Hospitals for Children — St. Louis received a total of over $8.4 million from the estate of well-known southeast Missouri businessman and philanthropist Norman Harty.

A resident of Dexter, Missouri, Harty, who passed away in 2017, was supportive of his community, and dedicated much time and effort to the Three Rivers Shrine Club and Shriners Hospitals for Children. As the former president of First Commercial Bank, Harty owned 10 branches across southeast Missouri. He also founded N.B. Harty Contractors.

Harty’s generous gifts will help support world-class orthopaedic health care for children, regardless of their families' ability to pay.

“Thanks to the generosity of donors like Mr. Harty, our hospital can provide care to help children beyond the limits of their insurance, and ensure confidence they are receiving the best care possible,” said Chief of Staff Scott Luhmann, M.D.
