Making a Difference is What We Do

You’ll find Lee Health Foundation’s team assisting donors to find meaningful ways to support causes they are passionate about, including children, wellness, cancer, mental health and the financially needy. We are available to give tours to connect advocates throughout the community with our mission and host engaging signature fundraising events. Additionally, we’re always responsive and available to meet potential contributors in person.

Behind the scenes, we operate with integrity, character and a passion for supporting the lifesaving programs and health care services provided through Lee Health. We look forward to working with you to make a difference in Southwest Florida!
