Visionary Partner Society
In 2009, the Baton Rouge General Foundation embarked on a plan to establish
an annual giving program that would provide ongoing support for the hospital
for years to come. Our Visionary Partner Society has grown to include
171 members and has raised more than $2 million in gifts and pledges.
The Society provides a sustainable funding stream that allows the Foundation
to meet program and equipment needs of the hospital as they arise.
Many companies encourage employee giving through a matching gift program
which allows donors to maximize their giving power. 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
Memorial & Tribute Gifts
Giving a gift in memory of a family member, friend or caregiver is a wonderful
way to honor a loved one.
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, your contribution will support the programs
and services of Baton Rouge General. In addition, a personalized note
will be sent directly to your honoree.

Memorial Gifts are a thoughtful way to 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.

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 the call of duty 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

Lullaby Baby 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 Baby
Program. Your child’s footprint will be etched in pink or blue on
a satin silver medallion, along with the complete name and birthdate.
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 an easel for display
in the home or office. And for a seasonal reminder of your baby’s
birth, an etched glass holiday ornament displaying your baby’s footprint,
name and birthdate is also available for $50.
