Ways to Give

The steadfast support of our donors has helped to make New York Methodist Hospital a leading healthcare provider in our community. If you believe in the Hospital's mission—to provide excellent healthcare services in a compassionate and humane manner to the people of Brooklyn—then please consider making a gift through any one of the programs listed below or by making a general contribution. With your help, our Hospital can continue to be at the forefront of medicine and patient care. For your convenience you may securely donate online.


Red Stocking (Annual Giving Program)

Throughout the year it’s important to give back by helping those less fortunate, especially members of our own community. NYM's Red Stocking campaign, initiated in 1925, is our ongoing program that helps patients in need in our Brooklyn community. Save the date for NYM's 2014 Red Stocking Soirée on Wednesday, November 19th. This annual "Taste of Brooklyn" event started in 2011 as a way to spread awareness about this long-standing program.

2012 Candlelight Gala  

Special Events (Candlelight Gala/Golf Outing)

Twice each year, staff, friends and benefactors of NYM gather for special events which raise money for medical programs, patient care and research initiatives.


Business Circle of Health

The Business Circle of Health, launched in 2014, is a network of business and corporate supporters who believe in the Hospital’s mission. This partnership with businesses is designed to enhance communication and access to high quality healthcare. Gifts made to this program will help NYM to address the needs which are most critical to the success our institution. Click here for more information.

Honoring a Nurse or Doctor
