Cottage Health Giving Societies

Cottage Health could not continue the excellent level of care we give the Central Coast without our many supporters. The following giving societies help us recognize their generous spirit.

Cottage Founders Society

The Cottage Founders Society pays tribute to those who commit $50,000 or more to Cottage Health, allowing us to build on the dreams of our early founders. These donors help make Cottage an exceptional leader in health care and medical education. They also ensure that we can provide treatment and comfort to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

Members of the Cottage Founders Society are honored at a special reception each year. If you have any questions about the society, or if we can be of service, please call the Advancement Office at 805-879-8980.

1888 Society

Cottage Health can trace its origin to 1888 when a group of women joined together to create Cottage Hospital for the people of Santa Barbara. The Cottage 1888 Society now honors donors who remember Cottage Health in their estate plans or with a deferred gift such as a trust or annuity. Recognition includes an annual celebration of the Cottage 1888 Society. Call Carla Long at 805-879-8980 to learn more.

Cottage Associates

To continue our tradition of caring for the community as a not-for-profit organization, Cottage Health relies on our Cottage Associates, with membership available to those who give $1,000 or more annually. Learn more by calling Esther Takacs at 805-879-8985.

Cottage Business Associates

Businesses who give $5,000 or more each year to Cottage Health join our roster of Cottage Business Associates and receive special recognition on a hospital display. Call Esther Takacs at 805-879-8985 to learn more.
