Ways to Give

Fund a Patient

A donation to the Benevolence Fund helps pay for the care of our poorest patients. Consider this:

  • $200 pays for most of the surgeries we do
  • $100 covers the cost of a typical medical admission
  • $400 would pay for a patient’s orthopedic care, including the surgery to repair a broken bone and the hospitalization associated with it

All of our patients pay something, but some of our patients can’t pay more than the initial $2.00 consult fee. Any amount you give will change a life.
