How You Can Help

Our community has shown tremendous and moving support for our healthcare workers and emergency responders over the past several months as COVID-19 tightened its hold on our state. Yale New Haven Hospital moved quickly, rising to the challenge in countless ways and we are still working to deliver the expert, high quality care our community expects – safely and with compassion. We continue to test and treat patients with COVID-19 and your support is still crucial to our response efforts.

COVID-19 Support Funds

Yale New Haven Hospital established two emergency funds which will provide critical, much needed support to the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 PPE/Capital Provision Fund will be directed toward securing essential supplies, personal protection equipment (PPE) and medical equipment that are in scarce supply. The COVID-19 Support Fund has been established to help us take care of our dedicated and courageous caregivers. In addition to operational expenses, the fund will help support special initiatives such as Oasis Rooms; quiet, private areas where staff can find respite at times of overwhelming stress. Available resources include meditation and relaxation exercises, spiritual care and counseling services. The fund will also provide staff with meals and area accommodations so that our front line care providers do not have the additional worry of increased risk of exposure to their families and loved ones. These initiatives will help our clinical staff to sustain their resilience and continue to provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community. As the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, specific demands may increase or change. The COVID-19 emergency funds are designed to provide assistance as needs are continually identified during this unprecedented crisis. Choose your designation: Make an online gift today!

Crowd Funding

Use your creativity and passion to help raise funds for the COVID-19 Support Funds 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 easy-to-use personal fundraising pages that you can share.

Medical Supplies, Hand Sewn Masks and Food

Due to the overwhelming generosity and effort of our community in helping secure appropriate, medical-grade personal protective equipment, Yale New Haven Health has a sufficient stock of necessary items at this time. Thank you for making this possible! As a result of this effort, we are no longer accepting donations of medic­­al supplies, PPE, or hand-sewn face masks. If you have already created face masks for donation, we encourage you to donate them to organizations in your area where they may be most needed.

We are also appreciative of the many donations of food for our staff. At this time, we are no longer able to accept food donations.

We are most grateful for your support of Yale New Haven Health and your assistance in our COVID-19 response.
