Development Council: The success of meeting our charitable goals at Major Hospital Foundation depends upon our volunteer Development Council. This dedicated group of community members act as Major Hospital Foundation ambassadors and are committed to developing resources to help support Major Health Partners through the Major Hospital Foundation.

They raise money in the following ways:

  • Direct mail and personal visits to secure charitable gifts from individuals and businesses.
  • Educating people about tax-wise giving to encourage gifts of stock, property, insurance, and planned gifts made through wills and bequests.
  • Conducting major fundraising campaigns to support Major Health Partners' work in the community.

The staff of the Major Hospital Foundation works closely with the Development Council and supports their administrative needs. For information, or to make a gift, please contact the Major Hospital Foundation at 317-421-0361.
