“I've experienced firsthand how much of a positive impact this campaign can have on a community. As a survivor of the 2010 Haiti earthquake and now a volunteer relief worker for the same, it was a blessing to have received the kind of support the MGH gave me, my family and the Haitian community through the MGH Fund. I feel compelled to give back so that others can receive support when desperately needed. Mesi (thank you) MGH.”

“I believe we are one as the MGH community, and helping those in need is something that makes me proud. Nothing is too much or too little – every little bit counts.”

“I support both United Way and the MGH Fund every month. I support the MGH Fund because these funds can be used as start-up support for programs that are truly novel and innovative or fund a gap so we do not lose outstanding care providers or research talent to other institutions. These funds are critical to be able to maintain what makes the MGH not only a unique place to work, but to continue to be one of the best – if not the best – hospitals in the world.”

“I am happy to support both the MGH Fund and United Way as a way to give back to a hospital that has given me and my family so much through the years. I know that my donations help to support programs not only within MGH, but in the community as well. The funds are a great way to contribute to our mission of helping and supporting our patients and families.”

“I experienced a lot growing up. But the local transition program that helped my daughter and me when I was 19 years old made me realize how many organizations rely on donations to make a difference. People do have an impact through giving.”
