At the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, we are fortunate to have the support of incredible donors. Community members throughout the Bay Area have given to Alta Bates Summit for decades, helping to fund innovative medical research, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, and new programs that respond to critical needs in the community but fall outside of our normal operational budget.
Many of our donors have specialized interests and want their gifts to go toward improving care or furthering research in a particular area of medicine. These interests are often inspired by a family member or friend who has faced a health challenge. Alta Bates Summit has an entire team of development professionals dedicated to helping donors find giving opportunities that align with their passions.
Along with our development team, we work closely with physicians and clinicians from Alta Bates Summit who keep us abreast of recent developments in medicine and Alta Bates Summit’s current and upcoming needs. These “physician champions” also meet frequently with donors to learn about their interests, give them previews of new innovations in the pipeline and brainstorm specific gift opportunities. These collaborations further assure both longtime and potential new donors that their generosity will directly impact the areas of healthcare closest to their hearts.
