Our Relationship with Tampa General Hospital

Tampa General Hospital’s roots on Davis Islands date back to 1927 when it opened with 186 beds. Today, TGH is a 1,010-bed academic medical center serving close to a hundred thousand patients each year.

In order to provide meaningful philanthropic support to TGH, the Tampa General Hospital Foundation was formed in 1974. The Foundation’s goal is to enhance the overall health and wellness of the Tampa Bay area by inspiring others to invest in the patients we serve. As ambassadors for TGH, we commit to engaging the community and providing philanthropic support for both the present and future needs of Tampa’s premier hospital.

The Tampa General Hospital Foundation is a private, not-for-profit corporation, and is a qualified charitable organization under section 501(C) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. We abide by the nationally accepted Donor Bill of Rights.

Christmas in July
Christmas in July is a campaign to replenish the TGH Children’s Medical Center’s toy closet so generously filled during the holidays in December. Items from the toy closet are used by the Children’s Medical Center’s certified Child Life Specialists to provide distractions, comfort, and fun activities to pediatric patients throughout their hospital stay. To make a monetary donation to support this initiative, please select Child Life Fund from our online giving form.
