Identifying and exchanging best practices in fundraising is a primary goal of The Woodmark Group. Several programs advance the goal. They are:
Facing the shared challenge of needing to build a major-gifts culture, Woodmark members created the Children’s Circle of Care program in 1995 to recognize and educate their leading benefactors. Leading benefactors are known as Children’s Circle of Care members. They are individuals, couples or members of family foundations who contribute $10,000 or more annually to one of Woodmark’s member hospital.
Since 1995, Children’s Circle of Care members have collectively contributed more than $8.3 billion to support clinical care, research, teaching, and the child-health advocacy efforts of Woodmark-member children’s hospital. In 2018, there were 8,156 Children’s Circle of Care members across the United States and Canada. Donors that are interested in becoming members of the Children’s Circle of Care are invited to select one of Woodmark’s member hospitals to support with their charitable contributions.
