We believe that generosity is a powerful healing force. Acts of generosity heal the recipient as well as the giver. And for anyone observing a selfless act of generosity, he finds healing and inspiration as well. At Riverside, we desire to ignite your benevolent spirit by linking you with opportunities that fuel your dreams. Join us!
What is the Samaritan Society
The spirit of philanthropy has been at the heart of Riverside from its founding. Since 1959 when a handful of residents began collecting pledges to build this new hospital, gifts of all sizes have fueled the hospital's forward march toward innovative new therapies, excellence in patient care, and training the next generation of outstanding health care professionals. The Samaritan Society recognizes and celebrates the generosity of our philanthropic partners who give annual gifts totaling $150 or more.
Please consider becoming a member of the Samaritan Society. Riverside's goal of providing the most advanced healthcare in the region depends on continued investment by donors like you.
