Your generosity matters in unprecedented times like these. We are also asking for your support of the following critical areas of need:

  • Healthcare Heroes ICU: Your gift to the Healthcare Heroes ICU Special Campaign pays tribute to the lifesaving work of our staff and enables us to name the 6th floor ICU in our new inpatient building in their honor.
  • BIDMC: Your gift to BIDMC provides flexible support that allows us to focus on what we do best—providing extraordinary care to patients.
  • Food and In-kind Support: In order to ensure staff safety and equitable support for our healthcare heroes throughout the institution, we ask that any community members seeking to support our frontline responders donate to our Healthcare Heroes Fund. We are not able to accept gifts of food or non-medical supplies, but the tremendous support we continue to receive through the Healthcare Heroes Fund enables us to swiftly respond to the areas of greatest need for our team—supporting everything from warm winter clothes for the staff in our outdoor testing tents to staff meals, wellness resources, and relief for critical care providers working around the clock through the surge. If you have specific supplies or food items you wish to donate, read this list of community organizations that are among those currently accepting donations.
  • Regardless of how you choose to give, your support makes a difference in the lives of BIDMC patients. We are tremendously grateful for your generosity. Thank you!

    How the CARES Act Could Benefit You

    On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 was signed into law and several parts of the CARES Act were extended, including the higher deduction limit for charitable cash gifts thorough the end of December 2021. If you would like to use cash to make a large gift or accelerate pledge payments in 2021, you may deduct these gifts up to the full extent (100 percent) of your adjusted gross income. To learn more, please email Kim Erskine or visit our Planned Giving site.
