Campaigns and Featured Programs
Building Dreams Together: The MultiCare Campaign for Healthy Children includes the first three of our foundations.
Celebrate Kindness is a thoughtful way to recognize excellent care received at MultiCare. Through this program gifts can be made in your caregiver’s honor (doctor, nurse, staff, or volunteer) to support MultiCare’s mission to provide quality patient care to all in our community.
BRIDGES: A Center for Grieving Children is a grief support center serving families with children ages 4 through 18 who have experienced the serious illness of a family member, or the death of a relative or friend.
The Kitsap Great Give is being held May 6th to benefit the Kitsap Community. This 24-hour day of giving is being hosted by the Kitsap Community Foundation. The Foundations of MultiCare are participating to benefit Mary Bridge Children's Hospital's Pediatric Intesive Care Unit, Good Samaritan Hospital's Children's Therapy Unit and Tacoma General Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
