Our Foundation

Annual Giving 

Gifts to the Foundation’s Annual Giving Program allow Baton Rouge General to continue providing compassionate care and the latest technology to our community. These generous donations support the hospital’s most pressing needs and ensure that programs and services offered by the General will be here for future generations.

The annual Experience the Difference Luncheon raises funds for the Foundation’s Annual Giving Program. Join the Visionary Partner Society, Baton Rouge General Foundation’s multi-year giving society, to make an even greater difference in the lives of patients seeking health and healing in our community.

Many employers encourage employee giving through a matching gift program.  This allows donors to double their giving through their workplace matching gift program, maximizing their giving power. Please contact your company's human resource department to determine if your company has a matching gift policy. Baton Rouge General is an eligible non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. For more information on matching gift programs or to inquire if Baton Rouge General qualifies for your company’s program, contact the Foundation at (225) 763-4372 or foundation@brgeneral.org.

Giving a gift in honor or memory of a family member, friend or caregiver is a wonderful way to honor a loved one.  The following are ways to honor someone through a memorial or tribute gift:

Grateful Patient Program
The Grateful Patient Program provides an opportunity for patients to honor their heroes - physicians, nurses and frontline staff - who went above and beyond in providing exceptional care. These gifts of gratitude will purchase innovative equipment, aid in launching new programs and fund key service lines. In addition, each staff or physician honoree will be recognized in a special way by the Foundation. Click here to honor someone through the Grateful Patient Program. 

Lullaby Babies Program
The birth of a child is a joyful occasion for families and the Lullaby Baby Program is a celebration of these miracles. For a tax-deductible contribution of $75, your baby can become a member of the Lullaby Babies program. Your child’s footprint will be etched in pink or blue on a satin silver medallion, along with the complete name and birth date. To perpetuate the honor, this medallion will be permanently displayed on the Lullaby Babies recognition wall located in our Birth Center’s Family Waiting Area. For an additional $50, you can receive a duplicate of this beautifully crafted medallion, which includes a lucite easel for displaying in the home or office. And for a seasonal reminder of your baby’s birth, an etched glass Christmas ornament displaying your baby’s footprint, name and birthdate is also available for $50 each. Click here to purchase a medallion through the Lullaby Babies Program or download a brochure with more information. 

Tribute Gifts are a way to honor a special person, commemorate life events (such as weddings, retirements or graduations) and celebrate special occasions (such as birthdays or anniversaries). By making a tax-deductible tribute gift to the Baton Rouge General Foundation, a personalized note will be sent directly to your honoree and your contribution will support the programs and services of Baton Rouge General.

Memorial Gifts are a thoughtful way to remember and memorialize a family member or loved one who has passed away. Gifts in memoriam offer a lasting tribute, while providing donors the comfort of knowing their gift has helped others in their community. Click here to honor someone with a Memorial Gift.
