Hope from the HeartYou are the heart of MLKCH

You bring compassion and care to our patients and hope to our community. Now you can strengthen the wonderful work you do each day through MLKCH Gives, our hospital-wide giving campaign.

Through large and small gifts, our hospital family has raised more than $180,000 to support thousands of patients and their families and to improve the health of our community.

Whatever you give—$5 or $500—you’re giving more than money. You’re giving hope—and you’re giving it from the heart.

Make your gift from the heart today.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is MLKCH Gives?
    MLKCH Gives is our annual staff giving campaign. It’s an easy way to support the mission of MLKCH and to live up to our values of Caring, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence.

    Who can participate in MLKCH Gives?
    Employees, contracted staff, hospital consultants, vendors, physicians, and community members—everyone who makes our hospital the great place it is—can participate in this campaign!

    Where does my dollar go?
    Your gift goes directly to our hospital’s general fund where it supports our patient care operations. It helps patients and your colleagues—and strengthens the MLKCH community.

    For example, from the general fund, we:

    • Supply discharge medication to patients who are unable to afford it
    • Invest in staff professional development opportunities
    • Offer a celebratory dinner for mom and guest after delivery
    • Find innovations that help address patients’ needs

    Does my gift really make a difference?
    Yes, your gift matters! Your participation influences others. Outside funders who have made gifts to the hospital tell us that the support—and heart—staff give to the hospital helps them decide to give, too.

    Do I have to give online?
    Our online form is secure and easy to use, but if you’d prefer not to use it, please visit one of our MLKCH Gives events for a print form.
