About Blue Peaks Giving Circle
Blue Peaks Giving Circle at Cook Children’s is a group of donors who are focused on collaborative philanthropy. Blue Peaks Giving Circle members are passionate advocates and supporters who will bring Cook Children’s boldest visions to life through meaningful annual support. Their combined funds make a greater impact than one can achieve alone.
Donations to Blue Peaks Giving Circle directly affect Cook Children’s patients, families and health care heroes. Impact giving allows Blue Peaks Giving Circle investors to be on the front lines of philanthropic innovation. They can help support the ever-changing needs and meet the emerging challenges at our medical center. This form of community-based generational giving is especially rewarding because it goes further and lasts longer.
As a member, your tax-deductible contribution will fulfill Cook Children’s Promise in two ways:
Blue Peaks Giving Circle Fund: 90% - Each year, Blue Peaks Giving Circle members vote to determine how 90% of the donated funds will be distributed within Cook Children’s. You determine where your dollars will have the most impact.
Blue Peaks Giving Circle Endowment: 10% - Your gift today will make a lasting impact on our patients' tomorrows. The endowment will receive 10% of all collected funds to support our patients and their families in perpetuity.
Membership is available at many levels and there are many ways for you or your family to get involved.
