The Giving Society

Our donors are a dynamic group of individuals who invest their compassion, gifts and leadership to help fulfill our mission at Baptist Health Foundation. They also contribute needed financial resources and time to efforts that allow them to achieve their own personal missions - to change people’s lives for the better through lifesaving medical services and support.

If you already have a desire to help others, or are looking for tangible ways to help and even save people’s lives, join us. Need an example?

Whether you help fund innovative programs, build new facilities or create educational opportunities for nurses, you are a vital partner in Baptist Health’s mission to improve healthcare in our community. Beyond the camaraderie and networking benefits, members experience a sense of accomplishment that happens when people unite to achieve a common goal.
