WHO ARE WE?
We are the Special Events Department of Scripps Health Foundation.
The Foundation plays a very important role in Scripps growth because Philanthropy is critical to the patient care we provide every day. Our Mission is:
"Through philanthropy we help to heal, enhance and save lives."
From funding the most advanced robotic surgical equipment to building state-of-the-art emergency rooms and enhancing critical care services, Foundation make progress possible!
In our department we help Scripps to raise money by putting together different fundraising events, such as golf tournaments, silent or live auctions, beautiful balls and galas. Some of the events we do are Annual Candlelight Ball, which supports Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla; annual Mercy Ball, benefiting Scripps Mercy Hospital; Spinoff Auction benefiting Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla; Invitational Golf Tournament to support programs at Scripps Clinic, Wine, Wine & Shoes to support Scripps Encinitas. The money raised from these events will go directly to support Scripps hospitals and campuses.
We also organize quite a few smaller, non-fundraising events throughout the year. We call these events “Stewardship events” as the main goal of these events is to educate and inspire current and prospective Scripps donors about system-wide campaigns at Scripps, to keep the donors engaged as well as build strong relationships with them.
As you can imagine, putting together events of this caliber is no small task, so we can always use some help. We always look for volunteers who can help us with greeting, guest registration, the silent and live auctions and more!! We also need volunteers to be on event planning committees. So, if you are interested in helping us, please feel free to give us a call or sign up here. We look forward to meeting you!
