Giving Hearts Program

Giving Hearts Young Professionals Program

Giving Hearts is engaging young, entrepreneurial and philanthropic individuals who are on the rise in the Buffalo-Niagara community. Together we will ensure that every patient and family member traveling to Buffalo for medical care will be welcomed through our doors, regardless of their ability to pay for their stay.

Thanks to our 2018 Class of Giving Hearts who collectively raised more than $30K!
