About The Broward Health Foundation

Broward Health Foundation Building

Formed in 1999 and governed by an active Board of Directors, the Broward Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the health of its community by providing resources to promote, support, and enhance the programs and initiatives of Broward Health. Broward Health operates with a mission to provide quality healthcare to the people it serves and to support the needs of all its physicians and employees. For more than seventy years, Broward Health has served as a healthcare “safety-net” provider for the northern two-thirds of Broward County – over 275 square miles.

Broward Health offers inpatient and outpatient services to the uninsured and underinsured – regardless of their ability to pay – and is one of the ten largest public healthcare systems in the nation. The Broward Health system includes Broward Health Medical Center, Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital, Broward Health North, Broward Health Imperial Point, Broward Health Coral Springs, Broward Health Weston, and more than thirty Community Health Services facilities.

While quality medical care is the cornerstone of Broward Health, it is through Community Health Services that the health system truly connects with the community. It is the Division’s mission to provide a network of family health service sites that offer both affordable and comprehensive primary healthcare—including home health services and hospice services—throughout neighborhood community locations, primarily serving indigent patients and the working poor. Through a variety of school-based and neighborhood-oriented facilities, the Community Health Services Division provides pre-natal care, prevention and education, outreach, case/disease management, primary care, specialty care, urgent care, dental care, outpatient diagnostic testing, home health care, and hospice care.

A Message From The President

The Power of One Gift.

Traci Allyn Shur, CFRE

That’s the tagline the Broward Health Foundation adopted several years ago. Its meaning has grown and evolved and become more important than ever. It proves that everyone in our community has a role in making our fundraising efforts successful, and that every person makes a difference with each and every gift. To be charged with raising funds for a hospital system as large and complex as Broward Health is a huge responsibility and one that is never taken lightly.

We are proud that we have created a Foundation with programs, events and initiatives that offer so many ways to become engaged in the important work we do. We are proud of all that we have accomplished with philanthropy, but we never lose sight of the fact that we could never do what we do without you. There is still much to be done to ensure that we can continue to serve the community by supporting Broward Health and its goal to provide outstanding healthcare.

I invite you to join us, support us and embrace the feeling of The Power of One Gift that can only be experienced with kind generosity.
