Ways To Give
Cancer care patients and their caregivers, families and friends are welcome to renew their mind, body and spirit with a number of classes and events held at North Star Lodge. Provided through generous donations to The Memorial Foundation, patient also receive support for medication assistance, nutritional snacks in infusion care, nutritional supplements, and a wide range of patient and caregiver therapy programs. 89% of your donations go directly to programs.
Donations also ensure that we're able to offer the latest in technological advancements for cancer prevention, detection and treatment, in addition to other life-threatening diseases. Private gifts also leverage significant additional investment, permitting our programs to successfully compete for prestigious foundation grants that do not cover the full cost of research and care.
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospital staff, supplementing and enhancing the service and hospitality given to patients and visitors. Many volunteers at North Star Lodge and Ohana are survivors who find it therapeutic to "give back" through volunteering.
Hospice and Transitions volunteers complete additional specialized training and assist patients, families and caregivers in private homes, nursing facilities, hospitals and Cottage in the Meadow.
