Giving for Gayle

Longtime gift shop manager Gayle Stegeman was the embodiment of caring—and a perfect example of how the little things we do can make a big difference in other people’s lives. Learn more about Gayle and how her incredible legacy lives on through scholarships for our junior volunteers.

Programs You Can Support

You decide how your gift is used: Give to a cause close to your heart, or allocate it to our general fund, and we’ll determine where the need is greatest.


Maple Grove Hospital General Fund

You have the power to help every customer who comes through our doors have a meaningful and fulfilling experience. The extraordinary care you remember can be extended to others, right here at Maple Grove Hospital.

These funds are distributed to where the need is greatest, supporting a wide variety of extra services and care that make life—and its hurdles—a little bit easier to manage.

The General Fund has helped:

Develop our Schwartz Rounds. These seminars support our incredible caregivers by allowing them to connect to each other and help them build the resiliency and coping skills they need to work through the stress and emotions they face every day on the job.

Implement integrative therapies into our care practices. This includes helping customers manage their nausea after surgery with acupressure bands and training our team in the art of Healing Touch, a complementary therapy that helps customers feel better, faster.

Create a medical-free zone for our smallest customers, where kids can take part in therapeutic play and stress management, free from the worries that can come with treatment.

These funds can support a wide array of projects, from technology upgrades to new care programs, team member education to facility enhancements.

Bereavement Program

Our team is committed to offering care and services for families experiencing loss at the hospital for as long as they need it.

When you give to our Bereavement fund, you provide:

  • priceless memory-making
  • post-discharge grief support
  • speakers and materials for support groups
  • annual memorial services
  • education and resiliency training for our team members

Notably, these services are not just limited to our Maple Grove Hospital customers: Our support groups are open to the entire community. By giving to this fund, you’re helping others face one of the most difficult phases of their life and honoring those who have passed away.

Gayle Stegeman Memorial Scholarship

Gayle Stegeman was our incredible, longtime gift shop manager who provided an oasis within the hospital, supporting every shopper she met. Her thoughtfulness and kindness created a ripple effect throughout our halls and rooms from the day the hospital opened. Gayle was financially unable to pursue her medical-school dreams, so we know she would be proud that gifts made to her memorial scholarship will support the educational dreams of our committed junior volunteers. Her kindness continues on, even after her passing.

SafeJourney Domestic Abuse Advocacy Program

SafeJourney Program Support
Our unique domestic abuse program provides critical advocacy for those in dangerous, violent, and complex situations. We empower our customers with 24-hour advocacy services, safety plans, support groups, and community education—literal life-saving measures. When you support this fund, you are helping us build a library of resources, training volunteer advocates, providing families with secure cell phones, providing children with pajamas and stuffed animal friends, keeping support groups running, and so much more.

SafeJourney Client Emergency
When we have a client facing a domestic abuse emergency, we use the fund to help provide them with life’s basic necessities to get them to safety. This can include clothing and shelter, personal hygiene products, medications, cell phone, transportation, or support classes. This fund supports one client at a time, one unique situation at a time.

Senior Falls Prevention

An important part of good health is keeping customers educated, supported, empowered, and independent. Because falls are so prevalent, especially in customers over the age of 65 we teach them how to stay safe in their own homes. When you donate, you are supporting fall prevention educational activities, team member training, and community events.

Team Member Crisis

Maple Grove Hospital team members are on hand 24/7 to help you through any medical need or emergency. Donating to this fund is a way to support them in return.

By giving, you help team members who are going through an unexpected life-changing event, such as an illness, a death in the family, or a natural disaster. It is one impactful way we can help our team members survive the unimaginable.
