What is LEAD?

LEAD, or Ladies Empowering & Advocating for a Difference, is a passionate group of women, who together are advancing research, innovation and patient care.  LEAD brings together West Michigan women who are inspired to help make a difference in health care for patients and families at Spectrum Health, including Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.  LEAD members attend learning sessions throughout the year in which they get an up close and personal understanding of the programs and services that need philanthropy. At the end of the year, each member can decide how to allocate their $1,000 donation.

LEAD Membership

Our goal is to make participation effortless, allowing women to learn, be inspired and lead with their gifts. To join we ask for a minimum annual contribution of $1,000 or quarterly contributions of $250.  Members allocate their annual contribution to programs they are personally passionate about at the end of the year.
