Why Young Philanthropists of Baptist Health (YPBH)?
In the midst of busy lives, demanding careers and family obligations, Young Philanthropists of Baptist Health (YPBH) use the power of teamwork and its member base to make a genuine difference in the health and well-being of the South Florida community.
Through philanthropy, community service and education, YPBH members invest time and resources in care and prevention, while connecting people in underserved communities to the services they need and deserve.
Young Philanthropists focus fundraising efforts on an annual project – such as important health and wellness initiatives, specialized services or new technologies to improve patient care – and raise funds to make it a reality.
Young Philanthropists have a message for you: If your mission to make a difference feels too big to accomplish on your own, join our team.
