Foundation Forward

The Official Newsletter of the Tampa General Hospital Foundation

Tampa General Hospital’s physicians, nurses and front-line care providers are prepared to meet the needs of our community. Their courage to put themselves in harm’s way should be a reminder about all the reasons we support the noble endeavor of health care.

Dear Friends,
Our ask for support in this challenging time has been matched by your unwavering response. In just under three weeks, over 300 donors have answered our ask so far, and generously given over $4.58 million to support the COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Your generosity has helped fund the highest and greatest needs of Tampa General Hospital as our team works to save lives in our community. It is an incredible show of unity for which we are immensely thankful! 
Our important work, however, is just getting started.
While the TGH leadership and clinical teams remain focused on the here and now, we've also been strategically planning for the long-term care needs of COVID-19 patients and other emerging infectious diseases. From participating in COVID-19 national research to supporting our team members’ new normal, TGH is committed to caring for those that need us most.
It is because of this unique vision and commitment that the DeBartolo family decided to contribute in a transformational way. Last week, the family not only made an incredible $2.5M gift, they also issued a challenge for others to join them in their investment.  
Please consider making a gift today. 
Together, we can make a lasting impact so TGH can emerge as a preeminent leader in addressing the critical needs of infectious disease prevention, mitigation and treatment --- measures that directly benefit and protect ourselves, our families and the Tampa community we love.
Best Always,
Frann M. Richards
