Designate your Gift
We have established several different funds to ensure that philanthropic support is directed toward programs and services that are of particular importance to the community and our organization. We invite you to consider which fund might best align with your individual interests.
Excellence in Women and Children Care Initiative
The Excellence in Women and Children Care Initiative enables us to purchase state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and fund new services and innovative programs – all of which ensure we can provide superior integrated care for women and children in the community. Gifts to this fund will be matched dollar for dollar.
Donations may be made to the Lactation Center at the Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center to enable us to encourage healthy breast-feeding practices and provide lactation counseling services and support groups for new parents.
This fund supports the myriad health education services we provide to our community. These include events, presentations, classes and support groups. We currently need support to expand our programs in childbirth and parenting, and to teach patients more about diabetes prevention and management.
Access to Care Program
This special fund enables us to respond directly to changing needs in our community. The fund supports programs that assist the underserved in our community such as maternity services for indigent and incarcerated women, insurance for low-income children and free health screenings for those in need.
