Honor your Caregiver and Make a Lasting Impact!

The SIH Grateful Patient & Family Giving Program provides patients, former patients and their families an opportunity to give back and honor those who so compassionately cared for them during their time of greatest need and to acknowledge the facility that provided outstanding care. The amount of the gift is not disclosed and you may remain anonymous if you choose. 

How it works

  • Upon receipt of your special gift, we will send a card of appreciation to the facility and/or healthcare professional(s) you have recognized.
  • The names of the facility and caregiver will also be listen in special SIH publications and in our Caregiver Honor Roll.
  • For gifts of $250 or more, your caregiver will be recognized with a special "I'm Honored!" lapel pin that he/she can wear proudly.

Your support makes a difference! Your generosity allows SIH to maintain state-of-the-art facilities and equipment as well as providing direct patient support and services to those with the greatest needs. If you would like to make a gift, you can click the red Give Now button above or download a printable form.
