What Nashville General Hospital Foundation means to our patients, families, staff, volunteers and you!
There is a time when every donor wants to make a critical difference in another person's life. That desire to step forward and offer funds, volunteer time or goods creates a singular opportunity to change someone's future for the better. Through Nashville General Hospital Foundation, that donor intent may be realized to help our patients and their families towards wellness. More than 40% of our patients arrive at our doors without resources to even afford their own healthcare, much less living expenses or healthy food to sustain disease self-management. Please take a moment to explore our giving and program pages to learn more about the difference you are invited to make.
Nashville General Hospital Foundation History
In 1978, Nashville General Hospital at Meharry (NGHM) established the Friends in General charity as a 501(C) (3) public foundation to raise donations to support patient care services. In the formative years, Friends raised money to purchase baby blankets for newborns delivered at NGHM. In July of 2016, the Board voted to amend the name to Nashville General Hospital Foundation in support of the mission of Nashville General Hospital’s mission: To improve the health and wellness of Nashville by providing equitable access to coordinated patient-centered care, supporting tomorrow’s caregivers and translating science into clinical practice.
Nashville General Hospital Foundation will generate resources in support of patients, families, staff and volunteers at Nashville General Hospital.
