Giving Circles

Giving Circles are a simple and powerful philanthropic initiative that provides an opportunity for individuals to collectively support the vital mission of Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center.   Members of a Giving Circle share a common goal – to make a difference in the lives of our oncology patients, their families, and our community. 

Through the efforts of the Hope & Healing Campaign, Saint Francis is committed to raising more than $15 million to further the impact, innovation and expertise of this remarkable institution; ultimately offering our oncology patients the best possible chance for a cure. Our goal is to bring healing and comfort to our patients and their families. 

Giving Circles can include 10 individuals or as many as 25; with a minimum gift of $10,000.  Each Giving Circle begins at $100,000 in total but can be as much as $500,000 or more. Members of a Giving Circle combine their financial resources to have a more significant impact. Recognition of all Giving Circle Members will be displayed on a beautiful plaque within the cancer center or our newly renovated inpatient oncology pavilion.  Friends, family, neighbors and colleagues can join together to show their full support of the Hope & Healing Campaign and our community. 

For more information on how you can have a significant impact on our patients, please contact Sue Joyse, Director of Philanthropy, Saint Francis Foundation, (860) 714-1210  or
