Giving Hearts Program


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.

Giving Hearts New Member Class of 2021

Do you, or someone you know, want to support KGH and gain non-profit experience?

Contact Marianne at 716-882-1818 or mpotratz@kevinguesthouse.org for more information to join the 2021 Class of Giving Hearts!

Join a dynamic group of individuals who have committed for one year to: 

  • LEARN about non-profits, the medical campus and how to fundraise for a cause.

  • SUPPORT the patients and families who call KGH their “home away from home” with hands-on volunteering and fundraising.

  • NETWORK with other young professionals who are looking to contribute to a cause, as well as KGH board members and other community supporters.

  • SHARE your knowledge with friends, family and co-workers as we look to increase awareness of KGH and grow our network.
