Giving to EJGH

The mission of The Foundation at East Jefferson General Hospital is to generate philanthropic support for EJGH through education, communication and active ambassadorship to the community. Established in 1969, The Foundation is an independent 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization governed by a community board of trustees. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference in the lives of our patients and the community served by EJGH.

Because EJGH is a community owned, not-for-profit hospital, it relies heavily on philanthropic support to provide the highest quality, compassionate healthcare to the people we serve. Much of what EJGH and The Foundation have accomplished over the last four decades is directly attributable to the generosity of our community. The Foundation supports EJGH by funding educational programs, healthcare services, technology and capital expansion projects through charitable contributions. People from all walks of life to come together and give of their time, talents, and treasure to strengthen our healthcare system.

Our benefactors contribute on many different levels. Some give individually, corporately, or by sponsoring our special events. Some designate their gifts for a specific initiative or campaign, while others give in honor or memory of a loved one. Some gifts are received through asset transfers and some are bequeathed. The giving opportunities are endless. The Foundation even offers opportunities to gain recognition for cumulative giving through our Keystone Benefactors Society. For more information about how you can impact the health of our community, please email or call (504) 503-5800.

East Jefferson General Hospital is a community owned not-for-profit hospital and receives no tax support.
