About Shriners Hospitals for Children

Shriners Hospitals for Children is changing lives every day through internationally recognized, innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research, and outstanding medical education.

Make Your Mark

Women's philanthropic giving has increased significantly in the last decade. From directing annual family giving, to contributing to giving societies and employee giving programs, women are impacting their charities of choice like never before. Women & Philanthropy at Shriners Hospitals for Children is a new annual giving society that benefits a different program annually as chosen by the First Lady of Shriners International.

About Patient Ambassadors

A patient ambassador is a past or present patient, or family member, who supports the Shriners Hospitals for Children mission through compassion, philanthropy, and advocacy.

Patient ambassadors are volunteers who serve as positive role models in their communities; share their personal experience with others; and promote the specialized, family-centered care provided by the compassionate staff at Shriners Hospitals for Children.

As a patient ambassador, our patients have the opportunity to participate in the following (options may vary by location):

  • Community outreach programs
  • Media interviews
  • Fundraiser

  • Hospital events
  • A pen pal program
  • The Ambassador Speakers’ Bureau
