On January 1, 2007, Swedish launched a seven-year, system-wide fundraising initiative knows as The Campaign for Swedish. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of more than 62,500 people just like you, the largest fundraising campaign in our 103-year history successfully concluded on December 31, 2013. With the original fundraising goal of $100 million surpassed in July 2012, the Campaign exceeded its original goal by more than $30 million.
We hope you take great pride in knowing that the community’s support of Swedish has helped change the lives of more than two million patients. Because of you, patients have better treatment options, access to advanced research and more clinical trials, improved health and most importantly, hope.
There is remarkable work taking place all across the health-system as the result of The Campaign for Swedish and the $130 million invested in the health of our community. Today, we are positioned to make an even bigger difference in the life of each patient who comes through our doors.
On behalf of each of our caregivers and the patients who have benefited, thank you for your ongoing, dedicated support of Swedish.
