THE FLOATING HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

Home/The Floating Hospital Foundation

AN INTEGRAL PART OF NEW YORK CITY’S SAFETY NET

The Floating Hospital has been a charitable institution in New York City since its formation in 1866—shortly after the end of the U.S. Civil War. Since then, it has relied on the generosity of patrons to support and maintain its mission of providing medical care and compassionate relief to the city’s most vulnerable populations. That mission today helps families and children experiencing homelessness receive essential primary care and health education. The Floating Hospital Foundation was created to ensure a legacy of giving and close the significant gap between the clinic’s operating expenses and its revenue from government contracts and insurance.

The Floating Hospital Foundation is an IRS Type I not-for-profit supporting organization that operates exclusively to support the hospital’s mission, operations and activities. It is led by its own dedicated board of directors, whose experience in and passion for philanthropic work help us raise funds and awareness of the our vital services. Drawing from a diversity of business and creative expertises, the foundation’s board is a group of talented, experienced individuals connected by a common desire to help those less fortunate. We are immeasurably thankful for their unflagging enthusiasm.

The Floating Hospital Foundation’s Board of Trustees is a group of dedicated individuals who serve through board membership and philanthropy.
