What if...your gift helps deliver healthy babies?
What if your support helps keep Mount Sinai there for you and your family in case of an emergency... and gives the entire community the Best Place to Give Birth in Miami-Dade County?
What if giving back to the community also benefits the people closest to you?
What if your gift helps deliver healthy babies?
“It was an easy decision to have our baby at Mount Sinai. The hospital is close to our home, it has great doctors, and a Level III NICU, if the need arises. We couldn’t be happier.”
Alison Kunkel, Young President/Young Founder
Young Presidents Club
The Young Presidents Club (YPC) has a young, active, community-minded membership that bonds by helping others of all ages, starting with the very young.
YPC members are creative and involved. Just one of the club’s achievements, YPC envisioned, planned and funded our hospital’s on-site daycare for the children of hospital employees. Another YPC brainchild is the Sons & Daughters Scholarship Program. The program, first established in 1973, recognizes students for their academic achievement, community service and writing skills. What if your membership in the Young Presidents Club can help many of the community’s young people and provide your family with the best place to give birth in the county?
The need for young philanthropists has never been greater. At this pivotal time in the Foundation’s history, when your donations are perhaps more important than ever, we ask you to consider a few What ifs...
What if Mount Sinai Medical Center were no longer here to serve you and the community?
What if you and your family were not able to count on Mount Sinai’s excellent medical staff and services in the future?
What if your gift can provide doctors and nurses with on-campus child care services so they can focus on saving lives?
Make the decision today to donate to South Florida’s largest private, independent, not-for-profit teaching hospital in support of Great Medicine for yourself, your family and your community.
Join the Young Presidents Club
“What if your membership could impact a whole world of tomorrows?”
Established in 1974, the Young Presidents Club provides the next generation of donors with the perfect opportunity to begin making a difference and offers many occasions to socialize with other community-minded young people. Membership in the Young Presidents Club requires a pledge of $10,000, payable over 10 years. Young, successful and ready to positively impact the future, the Young Presidents Club is one of Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation’s most active donor groups with all of its members making a difference, right here at home. Many of our donors began a lifetime of community support by initially joining the Young Presidents Club, and upgrading to Young Founder.
Here are some of YPC’s most acclaimed accomplishments:
Child Care Center, Labor and Delivery & Neonatal Care
More than 100 children of Mount Sinai employees enjoy the safe, educational and loving environment at the YPC Child Care Center. The child care center received local and national media attention for being one of the first hospital-based child care centers of its kind in the region.
In addition to the on-site employee child care center, YPC’s recent gift to the hospital provided much- needed equipment for Mount Sinai’s Labor and Delivery and Abess Level III Neonatal ICU departments, including:
- 3 cardio respiratory monitors to measure a baby’s heart and breathing rates
- 10 birthing beds
- 8 fetal monitors
- 6 procedure lights
- 1 anesthesia cart
- 1 warming cabinet
- 2 digital scales
- 1 epidural pump to administer anesthesia to mothers during and after surgery

Since the program’s inception, more than $1.5 million in scholarships have been awarded, giving hundreds of young people the chance to fulfill their dreams of a higher education..
