Why Giving Matters

When you give to Carle Center for Philanthropy, you enhance the world-class healthcare provided by Carle. Charitable gifts provide comfort. Bring peace. Relieve pain. Ease fear. Give hope. Your generosity enables Carle to go beyond what you might expect from a traditional community hospital and offer new and different programs to those we serve. When you give, you’re making the entire healthcare experience more positive for our patients, visitors and communities. You’re helping Carle achieve healthcare excellence.

Top Reasons to Support Carle

  • Every gift makes a difference. Together, all gifts—regardless of size—add up to millions of dollars that can change lives, inspire innovation and create hope.
  • Giving is a great way to say thank you and show gratitude for the care you or a loved one has received. Research shows that giving leads to happiness, and it can even have health benefits!
  • You can give to support your passion. Whether it’s fighting cancer, breaking the cycle of poverty in our community, or providing overnight accommodations to families of critically ill patients, you’re giving for a reason and making an impact.
  • When you give, 100 percent of your donation directly benefits programs and services that touch the lives of those in our care.
  • All donations stay local, supporting Carle’s mission to provide high quality care, medical research and education.
