Recognition for giving
Berger Health Foundation (BHF) values every supporter. You make our mission possible, our goals reachable and you help improve people’s lives everyday. Each giving society is designed to thank you and recognize your generosity. BHF has segmented the giving societies in three ways: annual, cumulative and planned giving. When you become a member of any society, you strengthen and enhance health care services in our area.
