Spectrum Health Foundation Ladies Giving Society


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.

2020 LEAD Learning Sessions

As we continue to monitor the developments around COVID-19, and to be sensitive to our attendees, we have decided to place a hold on future 2020 LEAD learning session events. The health and safety of our community and employees is our utmost concern.

We will explore new dates for future events and different virtual platforms that will bring us together safely, so everyone can participate. We appreciate your commitment and generosity.
