Humankindness Gala

ATTENTION: The Humankindness Gala, previously scheduled for May 14, 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are actively planning to host this event in the Fall of 2020 and look forward to announcing the new date once it has been determined. Please know that we value you, our community, and all those that walk through our hospital doors, now more than ever. We will be working with each of our sponsors and donors to ensure their continued participation and support of the 2020 Humankindness Gala.


Learn about our work in action.

The annual Humankindness Gala, hosted by Dignity Health Foundation, showcases kindness and addresses social issues facing communities served by Dignity Health, raising over a million dollars each year.

One hundred percent of proceeds from the gala are used to help address major social issues and health disparities facing our communities – including human trafficking, postpartum depression, concussion education and prevention, and health equity. In partnership with Dignity Health, one of the nation's largest health care providers, the foundation supports investments in people that help them live with dignity.

Funds raised through the Humankindness Gala support programs like the Medical Safe Haven Clinic, part of Dignity Health's Human Trafficking Response Program.

Trafficked persons suffer from serious medical and mental health issues ranging from physical and sexual abuse, to malnutrition, to post-traumatic stress disorder. At Dignity Health we are committed to training more staff, establishing more community partnerships, and reaching more survivors of human trafficking.
