Our average donation is $20. With that, Friends of Mel has been able to donate $1 million dollars to Massachusetts General Hospital. This gift was used to underwrite Dr. Beverly Moy’s breast cancer research.
On October 14, 2011 Mass General Hospital unveiled their Visionary Donor Wall – a six-panel glass display in the hospital’s main lobby which features the names of nearly 500 individuals, foundations and corporations – including Friends of Mel, who have given transformational gifts of $1 million or more during its 200-year history. As a grassroots organization, we are incredibly proud to be an integral part of Mass General’s history.
