Circle of Blue

circle of blue

In 2011, a group of female philanthropists coalesced around a common purpose—to support improvement and expansion of care for the children of Kentucky. Each year, Circle of Blue society members invest $2,500 in Kentucky Children’s Hospital for projects to enhance the experience of patients, families, and visitors.

As we move into the next decade of our service to Kentucky’s children, Circle of Blue members have launched a campaign to support the endowment of a Child Life Specialist for the Makenna David Pediatric Emergency Center. New members joining our Tenth Anniversary Campaign will receive an exclusive charm and bracelet reflecting their investment in the holistic care approach we champion.
