Your Kindness Changes Lives

Your Support Means the World

Your desire to give back is what powers our network of care. Every day, we’re supporting new mothers, comforting families struggling with cancer, and providing hope and healing to those with behavioral-health addictions. And we can’t do it without you.

When you donate to our Foundation, you’re helping us strengthen our B.E. Smith Family Center — a nurturing place for children with special and developmental needs. You’re helping us bring the latest surgical advances to our Shull Institute For Surgical Robotics. And you’re supporting our dedicated staff and volunteers. Donate to AdventHealth, give a planned gift, volunteer and the hospital, or attend a hospital fundraising event to help us extending the healing ministry of Christ to others as we serve and lift those around us.

Caring is our job. Giving is our passion. The Foundation supports our system of care by raising funds and strengthening community connections. Through the efforts of our board of directors, the Foundation has powered initiatives like A Mission of Healing Campaign, a huge expansion involving our Emergency, Surgery, Cardiac, and Critical-Care Departments.

Through campaigns, construction projects, and fundraising events, the Foundation is committed to enhancing the high quality of care we give to those around us. Help us provide that care by serving alongside us, donating your time or means to strengthen and give back to your community.
