Recognition Societies

Since 1983, the Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation has supported the hospital’s mission to improve the lives of people with disabilities and the lives of their families.

As a not-for-profit hospital, Sunnyview is committed to providing the highest quality rehabilitative care to all people, regardless of their ability to pay.

Philanthropy plays an integral role in enabling Sunnyview to create, enhance and sustain vital programs and services and purchase much-needed rehabilitation equipment that benefits our patients.

To honor those members of the Sunnyview family who provide a high level of annual support to the hospital, we have created recognition societies. These societies are named in honor of great philanthropists who have gone before us, yet whose generosity has made Sunnyview the rehabilitation center that it is today.

Becoming a Member

To join a recognition society, simply make a cumulative annual gift of $100 or more in a calendar year. As a member, you will provide Sunnyview with the ability to fund our most pressing needs.

To learn more about how you can become a member of our recognition societies, please call us at or email
