Keepers for Nursing

What is Keepers for Nursing?

Keepers of the Gate is Hadassah's national annual giving program, with over 4,000 women and men donating millions of dollars each year to support Hadassah's lifesaving and life-sustaining work around the world. Keepers for Nursing is part of the Keepers of the Gate family, where your donation will sustain the nursing needs of Hadassah.

How exactly is my donation helping as a Keeper for Nursing?

By becoming a Keeper for Nursing, your money will fund all nursing elements at Hadassah, including:

  • Nursing positions at Hadassah's hospitals in Ein Kerem and on Mount Scopus
  • Faculty positions at the School of Nursing. The School of Nursing is closely linked with the hospitals, since the teaching faculty work in the hospital and the nursing students are trained in the hospitals.
  • Nursing budget that is part of the overall Hadassah Medical Organization budget.

What are the levels of giving to become a Keeper for Nursing?

There are three levels of giving in the Keepers of the Gate program:

  • Traditional: $1,000-$1,799 annually
  • Chai: $1,800-$4,999 annually
  • Golden: $5,000+ annually

    What payment methods does Hadassah accept?

    You can pay by:

    • Credit card

    Can I donate over time throughout the year instead of in one donation?

    Absolutely! You can donate in monthly installments on your credit card, which comes out to $83.33/month for a $1,000 annual gift. You can also choose to donate semi-annually or quarterly. Just include your preference on the form.

    Can a chapter be a Keeper for Nursing?

    We're sorry but a chapter cannot be a Keeper. This is an individual gift.

    Does my chapter or region get credit if I become a Keeper for Nursing?

    Yes, all Keepers donations are credited towards the respective chapter or region goal.

    How does my donation as a Keeper for Nursing count with cumulative giving?

    With a minimum donation of $1,000 or more given after March 1, 2012 (Keepers or otherwise), your gifts (any amount) will begin accumulating toward the next giving level. If you are part of the Family of Founders or Society of Major Donors, your gifts are already cumulating.
