Linking the Past with Our Future

Driscoll Children’s Hospital created the Clara Driscoll Society to honor individuals who establish partnerships with the hospital that will strengthen its ability to help children far into the future.

The History

Clara Driscoll began a tradition of giving that continues to this day. In fact, it is because of a planned gift that Driscoll Children’s Hospital exists. Through careful foresight, Clara Driscoll planned her estate so Driscoll Children’s Hospital would be created.

With a single bequest, motivated by her deep and compassionate desire to care for sick children, Clara Driscoll established a spirit of charity that still benefits children in need today. She has made Driscoll Children’s Hospital an eloquent reminder of the impact of one person’s planning.


Anyone can be a member of the Clara Driscoll Society. Members typically:
  • Provide a gift to Driscoll Children's Hospital through a will or living trust.
  • Name the hospital as a beneficiary or owner of a life insurance policy, savings, brokerage or retirement account.
  • Establish a life income gift, such as a charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity.

Gifts may be unrestricted to aid the hospital’s greatest needs or directed to a donor’s specific area of interest. Your society membership includes special insider information, exclusive invitations and named acknowledgment in our annual honor roll of donors and on our donor wall.
