Join a Giving Society

Carolinas HealthCare Foundation hosts two giving societies – groups of donors who make multi-year pledges and participate in special projects. There’s also the Glimmer Guild, a special program that lets you purchase a crystal that hangs in the atrium of Levine Children’s Hospital.

Blumenthal Cancer Guild
The Blumenthal Cancer Guild is a society of friends of Levine Cancer Institute that will hold its first gatherings in 2012. The Guild is named in honor of the Blumenthal Family, whose founding gift helped establish the prestigious Blumenthal Cancer Center at Carolinas Medical Center in 1996. Their gift represented the first million-dollar gift in the history of Carolinas HealthCare System, and helped substantially in raising the level of cancer services provided in this region. The Guild will perpetually honor the visionary philanthropy of the Blumenthals. It will support multiple funds at Carolinas HealthCare Foundation that benefit Levine Cancer Institute, representing a variety of different cancers. For more information on joining the guild, call 704-355-4048.

Starlight Society
The Starlight Society is a group of young professionals dedicated to supporting the health and well-being of children and families served by Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Children’s Hospital (LCH). This group has been an instrumental part of creating a fun, stress-free environment for patients and families through family dinner nights, arts & crafts activities, musician groups and more.

Dreamcatcher Society
Launched in 2004, the Dreamcatcher Society is composed of energetic individuals and couples who are interested in the health and well-being of children in Charlotte and the surrounding area. Members pledge $1,000 a year for five years to underwrite programs and resources at Levine Children’s Hospital, and the Society hosts social events and recruitment drives. Members also make time to visit the hospital to see how their contributions are making a difference.

Today, the Dreamcatcher Society has more than 200 members and has funded several crucial projects at the hospital: the Children’s Hospital Area Transport System (CHATS); Dream Racers (see photo on right), which are race-car-styled carts that patients ride in to get around the hospital; and the Indoor Robotic Transport System, a robotic train with a talking conductor that delivers medication to pediatric patients.

The Dreamcatcher Society is currently endowing the Levine Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Program – one of the largest programs of its kind in the country. The talented Child Life team cares for the emotional needs of children and their families, educates them about the hospital experience and helps restore a sense of normalcy to their lives. There is never a bill for the Child Life services, but the benefits they provide are priceless.

Glimmer Guild
Individuals who join the Glimmer Guild can honor someone special by having a crystal hung in the prominent art piece in the atrium of Levine Children’s Hospital. Membership is $100.
