About Us

Jackson Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is the private fundraising arm of Jackson Health System, the most comprehensive healthcare provider in South Florida.

Through the generosity of compassionate donors, the Foundation financially assists Jackson Health System in providing world-class medical care to children and adults in South Florida, and the global community.

Established in 1991, the Foundation is governed by a 35-member volunteer Board of Directors committed to philanthropic activities that benefit Jackson Health System.

Three programs operate under the Foundation:

  • Golden Angel Society – a prestigious recognition club for donors who contribute a minimum of $50,000.
  • Guardian Angels – supporters who pledge a minimum of $5,000 over five years to enhance specialty programs at Holtz Children’s Hospital.
  • International Kids Fund Wonderfund™ – a global outreach program that provides medical care for children who cannot be treated in their countries. This program is supported through the Circle of Heroes who pledge $6,000 over five years.
