As a Miracle Maker, you join a special group of monthly donors in telling patients you will stand by them every day.
Monthly giving is our easiest and most convenient way to give. By setting up your monthly gift today, you are directly supporting the life-saving work at McLeod Children’s Hospital. And if your situation changes for any reason, you can always change or cancel your gift online or with a simple phone call.
What does a child miss most at the hospital? Being a kid. Celebrating small milestones, hugging their pets and playing with friends. These moments comfort a child and keep their spirits up. Happiness promotes healing. Your gift to the Miracle Maker Club brings childhood into their lives with play, celebrations, and furry friends.

How a McLeod Volunteer Gives Back
From volunteering at events, to serving in community organizations and funding programs out of her own pocket, Lauren Vause has always given back to those in need.
“It’s important to give back so you don’t take what you have for granted,” Lauren explained. “Everyone deserves an opportunity to be lifted up.”READ MORE
Lauren knows this because she once needed to be lifted up herself.
You see, Lauren was a premature baby and spent 60 days in a neonatal intensive care unit. Knowing how important it is to have excellent children’s healthcare close to home, Lauren regularly volunteers at McLeod Children’s Hospital events, most notably the Children’s Hospital Radiothon, where she is happy to answer the phones or do whatever else is required.
Never wanting to take things for granted, Lauren soon went beyond volunteering. “Hearing the amazing stories live from the DJs, staff, and families at the Radiothon moved me deeply,” she explained.
“I knew I wanted to do more.” That is when Lauren learned about monthly giving. She chose to become a monthly donor because “giving one time is a gift, but giving monthly is special.”
Soon, Lauren found herself supporting McLeod Hospice through the Hospice Tree Lighting, honoring her husband’s aunt and the memory of his late uncle.
“You never know when you will need the wonderful services offered at McLeod Health,” said Lauren. “There are so many areas McLeod supports and several have touched loved ones in my family.”
Despite having helped in such a variety of ways, Lauren continues to expand her philanthropy. She recently joined the Circle of Excellence, a new McLeod Health Foundation Young Giving Society.
“The Circle of Excellence is a wonderful way to get more intimately involved while building new relationships,” Lauren explained. “It’s so exciting to join from the beginning because I can help build the program and get other young people involved.”Close
