Impact of Giving
The inception of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality in 2011 came with a significant charitable gift from C. Michael and S. Anne Armstrong. This gift introduced a strong emphasis on patient safety and quality that can only be facilitated in future years with generous philanthropy.
Private philanthropy allows the Armstrong Institute to pursue innovative and important life-saving projects that otherwise would likely not occur. Patient safety is a science, and like all other sciences, it requires thorough research and implementation to stay effective and cutting-edge. The institute’s goal is to partner with patients, their loved ones and others to eliminate preventable harm, optimize patient outcomes and experience, and reduce waste in health care delivery.
Your generous contributions allow us to continue our vision of achieving such a revolutionary goal for each and every patient who comes through the doors of Johns Hopkins and other hospitals around the globe.
Types of Gifts
Any cash gift benefits the Armstrong Institute by enabling us to maintain, and even improve upon, our high standard of excellence and innovation in patient safety and quality. Gifts can be made outright or pledged over a period of up to five years, and they can also be made via check or credit card to provide instant support to the Institute.
Many employers offer a matching gift program to their employees. For every dollar you donate to the Armstrong Institute, your employer will match it either dollar for dollar, two dollars to one dollar, or, in more generous cases, three dollars to one dollar. All you need is a Matching Gift Form from your employer’s public affairs department. Complete the section designated for employees and mail the form to us. We will take care of all the other details and paperwork.
Gifts made in honor of family members or friends are a great way to celebrate the ways in which these loved ones have affected our lives. Gifts to support the Institute can also be made in memory of someone who has passed away to honor that person’s legacy in our hearts.
Through gift planning, our donors work with a development director from the Johns Hopkins Office of Gift Planning to choose thoughtful means of giving with respect to considering the tax and financial needs of the donor. These gifts allow you to formulate win-win scenarios for both you and the Armstrong Institute.
