How Funds are Raised

The Board raises funds in a variety of ways.

Businesses include three Gift Shops, located throughout The Johns Hopkins Hospital; the Grand Grounds coffee bars; and the Carry On Shop, a resale, thrift store, located on Monument Street.

Special Events include The Best Dressed Sale and Great Taste fundraisers. The sale is held every fall in the Carriage House at Evergreen while Great Taste, often house tours, is usually held every other year in the spring.  Great Taste special events also have included gala dinners and auctions. Since 2000, the Johns Hopkins Golf Classic is held each spring.

Contributions are given by generous supporters and by members of The WB, Depending upon the designation of the donor, these gifts are added to the Endowment Fund or to the Unrestricted Reserve Fund.
