Leading from the Heart

You are the heart of MLKCH

How much you care for our patients—and this community—shows in the work you do here at MLKCH. This month, celebrate how much our mission means to you through MLKCH Gives, our annual staff giving campaign.

Our community's healthcare needs are high—that's why we set our goals high. This year, we’re looking for 500 gifts from staff members. Whether you give $5 or $500, it all adds up to help us go above and beyond for our patients. Your generosity is just one more way to show you care. Together, we can lead the way to a healthier South LA.

Make your gift today.



From the Ground Up

Ruben Aguayo gives back to MLKCH because he can relate to how important our hospital’s quality healthcare services are to the residents of South LA.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MLKCH Gives?

MLKCH Gives is our annual staff giving campaign. If you work for or with MLKCH, this campaign is for you! It’s an easy way to support our mission and to put our caring values into action.

Where does my dollar go?

Your gift goes directly to the MLKCH general fund, which we use to address our community’s greatest needs. A strong general fund is the best way we can keep our promise—it helps us deliver responsive, quality care to our patients and our MLKCH community.

Our gifts to the MLKCH general fund make possible:

  • Maternal Education
  • Community-Based Healthcare
  • Discharge Medication
  • Specialized Training
  • Expanding Services

Do I have to give online?

Our online form is secure and easy to use, but if you’d prefer not to use it, stop by on of our tabling events—Tuesdays and Thursdays in the cafeteria during lunch—for a print contribution form.

Can I increase my bi-weekly payroll deduction?

Yes! Simply choose your new giving level online or on a print contribution form. Or, email Priscilla Valencia,
