Third Party Events

Third Party fundraisers are a great way to raise funds and awareness for Westchester Medical Center, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and MidHudson Regional Hospital. The fundraisers are planned and hosted by the community and can include everything from cartwheel-a-thons, bake sales and car washes, to golf tournaments, school plays, warehouse sales, and more. For more information, call the development office at 914-493-2575 or click here for a printable third party event registration form.

In-Kind Gifts

In-kind Gifts are a type of charitable giving in which goods and services themselves are given instead of funds. Donations of new toys, or gift certificates for the purchase of toys and supplies, go a long way in helping us provide comfort to our patients and their families during their hospital stay. Make your donation count! Due to infection prevention and control policies, used items are not accepted. Click here for more information.

The origin of Westchester Medical Center dates back to 1917, when the U.S. Army established a hospital for treating returning WWI troops affected by the Spanish Influenza epidemic. A few years later, the Army returned the buildings to Westchester County as a fully equipped hospital. Ever since, our campus has been used to care for the critically ill and injured in our region.

The 1917 Society was established to thank and honor the special generosity of contributors who make noteworthy annual gifts to the Foundations in support of Westchester Medical Center, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and Behavioral Health Center at the following levels: Silver: $1,000 to $2,499 Gold: $2,500 to $4,999 Platinum: $5,000 to $9,999

If you give a one time annual donation of $1,000 or more, you have the opportunity to join the 1917 Society.

Please contact us by email at foundation@wcmc.com or by phone at 914.493.2575 with questions or for further information.

As a member of the Legacy Society, you commit to strengthening our hospitals’ future by providing gifts that will support our nationally recognized advanced care to children and adults when they need us most.

Why should I become a Legacy Society member?

They trust us to be good stewards and to use their gifts in a way that most effectively and efficiently helps us carry out our mission of providing the best possible medical care.
