Circle of Excellence

What is the Circle of Excellence?

The Circle of Excellence is the Bloomington Hospital Foundation’s employee giving program. Through simple payroll deduction, your generosity will help the Foundation serve the hospital and the community through the annual campaign appeals, various new equipment/technology purchases, continuing education grants and employee assistance to name just a few.

Truly every single project or purchase the Foundation supports can be backed by the Circle of Excellence. By choosing “Hospital’s Greatest Need,” your contribution will support just that. Or perhaps you’d like to support a specific service line that’s important to you. There is also the possibility of helping out your coworkers through the HEART Fund or continuing education. Visit our Fund Designations page to learn more.

Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of those in our community? Then it’s time to join the Circle!

Why should I make a personal commitment to the Circle of Excellence?

Every contribution helps strengthen our services and address the needs of our patients, their families, and the community we serve. We know that these are difficult economic times for many of our patients – and also for our staff. In this tough economy, the needs of the hospital are as great as ever. Every gift makes a difference.

Your membership in the Circle of Excellence helps us all reach our mission of being one of the best hospitals in the state of Indiana. Large or small, your gift will touch the lives of the people in our community.

What other benefits are there to joining the Circle of Excellence?

When you’re in the Circle, you’ll not only make a difference in the lives of others, you will also benefit! It’s a win-win! Your membership in the Circle of Excellence provides you with an engraved paver or brick in the Centennial Plaza garden (depending on your level of giving) and a sense of good feeling knowing you gave to an organization that helps so many.

I’m already in the Circle. Do I have to sign up again?

No. If you are already in the Circle of Excellence, your membership automatically rolls over. However, if you would like to change your fund designation, that is an option on the membership form.

How much should I give?

We encourage gifts of any amount – whatever is right for you. The goal of the Circle of Excellence is for every person to be involved. Together, we can accomplish great things for IU Health Bloomington Hospital and for our community.
