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 Circle of Blue society member invests $2,500 annually to support Kentucky Children’s Hospital projects that enhance the experience of patients, families and visitors.

To celebrate our move into the next decade of 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 who join Circle of Blue will receive an exclusive charm and bracelet that reflect their investment in the holistic care approach we champion.
