Founders’ Board

The Founders’ Board can trace its roots back to the founding of the hospital in 1882, having first served as the Board of Lady Managers. It has been a consistent and steadfast presence in the hospital for more than 135 years and continues to touch each and every department within the hospital. The board is dedicated to supporting the hospital’s mission of providing the most advanced and compassionate healthcare for children and their families. It provides this support through active engagement and philanthropy, stewardship and fundraising, advocacy, hospital governance and volunteerism. Learn more at
