Friends of St. Mary’s

Learn more about the Friends of St. Mary’s committee, who volunteer and fundraise on behalf of the little patients of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.

The Friends of St. Mary’s committee is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the children and young adults with complex medical conditions who are patients at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.

Mission Statement

The Friends of St. Mary’s (FOSM) committee is a network of passionate professionals who are committed to enriching the lives of St. Mary’s Kids and their families through fundraising, advocacy, leadership and volunteering.

Fundraising for the Hospital

The FOSM committee hosts various fundraising events that benefit St. Mary’s Hospital for Children. Each event is paired with a hospital initiative in an effort to spread awareness about all that St. Mary’s does in support of the greater community. Committee members take turns championing these events via leadership roles that assign responsibility for all necessary event planning and execution.

Keep an eye out for registration and additional information once the next dates of these annual events have been finalized.

Volunteering at the Hospital

The FOSM committee volunteers at the hospital on a quarterly basis. During these visits, committee members spend time with the children and have the opportunity to create invaluable relationships through organized games and activities. Each visit has a unique theme and core activity planned to engage the group.
