The Golden Tree of Life

"It takes a noble man to plant a seed of a tree that will some day give shade to people he may never meet." - David Trueblood The Golden Tree of Life

Tampa General Hospital Foundation's popular commemorative giving program, The Golden Tree of Life, provides you with a wonderful vehicle for celebrating the birth of a child, graduation, wedding, anniversary, retirement (honor gift), or to remember the life of a loved one (memorial gift).

The Golden Tree of Life gracefully adorns the main lobby of the hospital and serves as a tangible and visible sign of your commitment to caring. Every leaf on the Golden Tree of Life represents a gift of $1,000, while a stone represents a gift of $5,000. Each provides a lasting vision of hope and encouragement for the thousands who visit Tampa General Hospital each year. Like a natural tree, the Golden Tree of Life depends on a support system for its continued growth and development. The purchase of a leaf or stone ensures the growth and development of education, services and research that make Tampa General Hospital so special. The Golden Tree of Life will flourish as the community, patients and their families, physicians, and staff continue to purchase leaves and stones. Donations to the Golden Tree of Life can be made by the following methods:

  • Cash, check, or credit card
  • Pledge (pledges may be fulfilled over one year, with monthly or quarterly installments. Once payment has been fulfilled the leaf or stone will be placed).
  • Gifts of securities
