How You Can Help

We are sailing in uncharted waters these days with the COVID-19 crisis. Certainly life as usual for all of us has changed with so many schools and businesses closed. Your Yale New Haven Hospital team, however, has never been busier preparing for what seems to be an inevitable rise in the numbers of very sick patients we will see. We take seriously our commitment to the care and safety of our patients, our staff and our community, and we are working to be sure we are as ready as we can possibly be to meet their needs.

A number of people have contacted us to ask how they can support our Coronavirus-related work. Below are several ways you can help.

COVID-19 Support Fund

The COVID-19 Support Fund will provide critical support to the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic through our Emergency Preparedness Department. Support will be used for patient care including testing, medication, medical supplies and staff support. It will enable our clinical staff to sustain their resilience and continue to provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, needs may increase or change. The COVID-19 Support Fund is designed to provide assistance as needs continue to be identified during this crisis. Make a gift today!

Crowd Funding

Use your creativity and passion to help raise funds for the COVID-19 Support Fund by activating your social media networks. Peer-to-peer fundraising is an effective way of raising much needed funds while also engaging with your friends and family, especially during this time when so many are practicing social distancing and self-isolation. We provide an easy-to-use personal fundraising page that you can share. For more information on How to Start Your Fundraiser in Everydayhero, click here.
