Giving Societies


The origin of Westchester Medical Center dates back to 1917, when the U.S. Army established a hospital for treating returning WWI troops affected by the Spanish Influenza epidemic. A few years later, the Army returned the buildings to Westchester County as a fully equipped hospital. Ever since, our campus has been used to care for the critically ill and injured in our region.

The 1917 Society was established to thank and honor the special generosity of contributors who make noteworthy annual gifts to the Foundations in support of Westchester Medical Center, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and Behavioral Health Center at the following levels:
Silver: $1,000 to $2,499
Gold: $2,500 to $4,999
Platinum: $5,000 to $9,999

If you give a one time annual donation of $1,000 or more, you have the opportunity to join the 1917 Society. Contact us at foundation@wcmc.com or by phone at (914) 493-2575 with questions or for further information.
