Gifts of Gratitude

Often, patients and their families want to know how they can show their appreciation to a caregiver who went above and beyond. One way to express gratitude is to make a charitable gift to Swedish Covenant Hospital to honor those who have made a difference in your care.

Your gift will not only show your appreciation, it will help Swedish Covenant Hospital continue to meet the needs of our community. As a not-for-profit organization, Swedish Covenant Hospital fulfills its mission through the generosity of friends, grateful patients, neighbors and business leaders who believe in enhancing care to help more than 95,000 patients served annually.

You can designate your gift to the area of your choosing. Philanthropic support has provided many positive benefits to our patients and the community, including increasing access to mammograms, providing medications to patients who otherwise could not afford them and providing nursing education. Learn more about the hospital’s priority programs.

If you or a family member would like to honor a caregiver, donate online now, view our brochure, or contact the Foundation at 773-293-5121 or
