Support the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

You can help us in the fight against COVID-19 with a gift to support the critical needs of our patients and their families, and our frontline care providers and staff.  Your gift to Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation will help provide a ready source of flexible funding available to meet the escalating healthcare needs of our community during the current crisis and in the future.  Today, the Fund is making possible nurse and staff resiliency programs to promote the health and wellbeing of our team; providing critical equipment and supplies; improving the patient experience during crisis; and providing other resources to address the rapidly-changing situation. 

Please consider supporting the evolving needs of our community with your gift.   As always, 100% of your gift will directly support programs that benefit our local community.

Donate Supplies
to Keep our Heroes Safe

Like all hospitals and medical facilities, one of Sentara Martha Jefferson's highest priorities is securing, protecting, and conserving our supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, face shields and gloves.  We are accepting donations of these materials.  More information about donating supplies can be found here, and you can also contact us at 434-654-5033. 

In addition, we are accepting donations of homemade masks. While we require the use of FDA approved masks for all staff, we recognize there are nationwide shortages and we want to provide masks to all outpatient visitors. We are especially in need of providing homemade masks to those undergoing treatment at the Philips Cancer Center.  These patients are recurring visitors, and by providing them with a homemade mask, it is theirs to keep and reuse, protecting them and conserving disposable masks.

For information on how to construct a homemade mask, please see this article from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

You may drop mask donations off at the outside desk located at the main hospital entrance, 500 Martha Jefferson Drive. If you have questions, please contact Sharon Bishop in the Foundation office at 434-654-8258 or
