Why Steve Young Gives to Scripps

The launch of Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center gives our community in San Diego access to the best cancer care and research out there. It isn't about how much you give, it's just about giving. Because one day, you could need these facilities and this care, and you're going to want them to be the best they can be. A donation today will help us save more lives.

We Innovate, We Serve, We Celebrate, and We Excel

We Innovate

  • We've advanced medical research into replacing brain cells destroyed by Parkinson’s disease with healthy, new brain cells with the goal to give patients the chance to live a normal life. 
  • Scripps researchers created the first lab-grown cartilage that cushions the knee joint, a major step forward to halt the progress of chronic osteoarthritis.
  • Our surgeons were the first in the West to use revolutionary new robotic-guided technology to perform delicate spinal fusions.


We Serve

  • Our 28 patient centers managed more than 2.4 million patient visits.
  • We care for more than 4,500 patients facing life-threatening illness or injury in our two trauma centers.
  • Our medical teams perform more than 100,000 heart procedures in our state-of-the-art cardiovascular facilities.
  • And our all-volunteer Mercy Outreach Surgical Team (MOST) have helped change the lives of more than 700 children who have no access to medical care.

Help us serve more patients in 2020

We Celebrate

Every year, more than 2,400 supporters celebrated with us at our six signature fundraising galas and events: Candlelight Ball, Mercy Ball, Spinoff, Scripps Clinic Invitational Golf Tournament and Dinner, Benefit for Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas and MOST Mariachi Festival.

Together, they raise millions to help support key Scripps initiatives – from cancer patient support services to emergency and trauma care, primary care, purchasing lifesaving equipment and more.  

We Excel
