White Rose Giving Circle

White Rose Giving Circle members before Emergency Department tour in July. This photo will be used in the winter Sentara RMH magazine with an article about what has been accomplished in the last 10 years!

The White Rose Giving Circle was created by a group of women coming together to share their time, talents and treasures. These fabulous women identify and nurture Sentara RMH projects and programs through the power of combining financial resources, ultimately improving the quality of life for everyone served by our community hospital. Each year members make an annual gift of $500 to the RMH Foundation.  Collectively, the members then decide where the pooled money will be used. In 2017, eighty plus philanthropic members funded eight projects totaling $41,991. In ten years, over $266,427!! has been gifted by this dynamic group of women who are committed to helping provide successful solutions to meet the healthcare challenges in our community.
