Caregiver Recognition

The Halo Program

Patients and families often ask us how they can say “thank you” for the outstanding compassion and care Valley Children’s provides. Perhaps you’ve already expressed your appreciation with a hug, handshake or note, but feel you want to do something more. If so, we invite you to participate in our Halo Program.

The Halo Program is a simple way for grateful patients, families and friends to acknowledge an exceptional caregiver who went above and beyond to make their experience at Valley Children’s a little easier. Whether you choose to honor an outstanding physician or nurse, an attentive dietitian, a cheerful housekeeper, or perhaps a caring chaplain or volunteer, your donation is a meaningful opportunity to say “thank you” and help future patients and families at the same time.

Make A Gift in Your Caregiver’s Honor

You can show appreciation for your special caregiver by making a gift of any amount to Valley Children’s in their honor. As a charitable, nonprofit organization, Valley Children’s relies on the generosity of individuals like you to help recruit the best caregivers, offer the latest treatments and invest in state-of-the-art technologies. By honoring your special caregiver with a Halo recognition, your contribution will directly affect our ability to ensure expert medical care for kids age 0 to 21 throughout Central California, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Acknowledge Your Caregiver

Share with your special caregiver how he or she made a difference and deserves a Halo by simply completing the attached form and returning it with your gift. Your caregiver will receive a special note notifying them of your gift in their honor, as well as a custom-designed Halo lapel pin symbolizing service excellence. Your honoree will also be recognized in Foundation publications.
