If your New Year’s Resolutions include charitable giving, then look no further than The Bellevue Hospital Foundation (TBHF). In an effort to help keep “Quality Care, Close to Home,” TBHF has several giving opportunities for you in 2022.
• Club 1917 assists in the ongoing development of healthcare programs and purchasing of specialized equipment for many of the hospital’s departments. Individuals, organizations, and businesses can all be a part of Club 1917 with a minimum annual donation of $100.
• The Women’s Mammography Fund is a way for donors to help make a difference for uninsured or underinsured individuals needing basic screening mammograms. This fund assists those patients with free or reduced screening mammograms.
• The Karen L. Hirt Memorial Wellness Trail includes trees/plaques in honor of or in memory of hundreds of loved ones throughout the years. A 3⁄4 mile walking trail around the hospital grounds is a relaxing way to take in all the trees, plaques, butterfly bushes, gardens, and more. Donated funds are used to lovingly remember special individuals who have made a difference in our lives and the lives of many others in the community.
• The Bob & Ellie Beck Centennial Wildflower Garden is an area where part of the hospital grounds was returned to Ohio native grasses and wildflowers. When in full bloom, this area attracts attention from bees and butterflies. This fund allows for continued maintenance, upkeep and seeding of the area.
