Leading with Care:
Helping Transform Cancer Care

The Healthcare Foundation’s ambitious fundraising campaign is helping SMH realize its full vision of providing world-class cancer care to our region.

Gifts to the campaign will contribute $75 million to help expand the Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute and its comprehensive care programs. The first two phases of construction have been completed. The Oncology Tower at SMH-Sarasota Campus and Radiation Oncology Center at University Parkway are open. Our fundraising is now focused on the next new phase, the Outpatient Cancer Pavilion on the SMH-Sarasota campus.

We are close to reaching our fundraising goal and your gift can help us cross the finish line.

There are many ways to make a meaningful donation to support the Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute. Perhaps you would like to make a gift in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone who cared for you during your treatment at SMH. Whether you choose to make a cash donation or leave a legacy gift through your estate or will, your gift, no matter the size, will help SMH complete the next crucial phase of the Jellison Cancer Institute.

To learn more about ways to give, available naming opportunities, or legacy gifts, please contact the Healthcare Foundation at 941-917-1286.
