Giving Back

The Healthcare Facilities Symposium has a long history of selecting a charitable organization each year, holding a raffle onsite and donating the proceeds to that charitable organization. What started as a small endeavor has grown to a highlight of the annual event with diverse organizations across the country benefitting from the HFSE community’s generosity. Since 2006, HFSE has donated over $200k to various charitable organizations.

The fun of the raffle is the opportunity for attendees to buy tickets and win prizes ranging from Kate Spade bags to Amazon Gift Cards to Apple products to Kitchen Aid Mixers.
