If you’re looking to donate to a children’s charity, you can make a lasting difference for children suffering physical deformities by investing in the Fresh Start Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital.
Through contributions of cash, appreciated assets, or property, you can make a difference in the life of a child. We are happy to work with you to identify ways that your gift may be recognized by naming a particular room or area for gifts of $35,000 and above.
Gifts of $10,000 or more are also perpetually recognized on our “Wall of Honor” in our Welcome Area.
Contact Michelle Pius, Chief Development Officer, to name the Clinic Building.
$500,000 will name the Fresh Start Clinic Lobby where patients and their families wait for appointments and procedures
$250,000 will name the Vital Signs Area at the Fresh Start Clinic
$100,000 will name the Fresh Start Clinic Patio
Clinic Room Naming Opportunities start at $50,000
For more information on Fresh Start’s Surgical Gifts and donating to our children’s charity, please contact email – Chief Development Manager at 760-448-2018 or email.
