How can a small donation make a difference?

Every donation makes a difference. Contributions from the Employee Giving Program make it possible for Cedars-Sinai to provide care for people who cannot afford it; to reach out to employees experiencing financial challenges; and to conduct lifesaving research. Many of these programs are not reimbursed by insurance or government funding.

Where does my contribution go?

You get to choose! We have listed the most popular funds on the form, however we have an “other” section for you to write in an area of research or patient care where you would like the money to go. 100 percent of your donation goes directly to the cause you select.
