Support Our Efforts

As Temple Health actively responds to the significant and growing public health threat facing our region and the nation, you can join our efforts as the Temple community comes together to challenge this crisis as one. Philanthropic support for our emergency funds will help fight the COVID-19 pandemic and its ripple effects:

  • The Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund supports the hospital in its immediate ability to respond to the current COVID-19 emergency.
  • The Temple University Hospital Employee Assistance Fund supports staff who are experiencing hardship as a result of the COVID-19 emergency.
  • The Community Emergency Fund supports the immediate and evolving needs of the Philadelphia’s most vulnerable populations—especially senior citizens, immunocompromised and chronically ill neighbors and families with small children.
  • The Student Emergency Fund supports Lewis Katz School of Medicine students with emergency items and services needed to support their health, well-being and continued medical education.

Gifts of every amount make a difference. Thank you!

Donate Tablets, Phone Chargers and Entertainment Options for Our Patients

Our patients need your help! We are seeking iPads/tablets, extra phone chargers, books, and magazines to distribute to patients in the hospital. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, visits from friends and family have been limited. Many patients leave home in a rush, without a phone charger or a book to read.

Please help brighten a patient’s day — THANK YOU!
