FoF LogoWe'd Love to Call You a Friend

All patients receive amazing care at our hospital, but our Friend of the Foundation program provides members with special benefits and personal attention from Foundation staff. 

Those who give at least $5,000 in a calendar year become Friends of the Foundation. These supporters enjoy benefits such as a visit from a staff member when in the hospital, a luxury plush blanket, priority for a private room (when available), a gift shop discount, and invitations to special events.  

Platinum Level

Generous supporters who contribute $100,000+ cumulatively become Friends of the Foundation – Platinum Level, with lifetime benefits. These members can qualify with an outright gift, an irrevocable planned gift (such as a bequest, IRA beneficiary designation, charitable trust, etc.), or a total cumulative gift of $100,000 or more.
