Letter from John Engle - Stewardship Report

Stronger Together

Letter from John B. Engle | Stewardship Report 2020

It has been more than a year since the first signs of the rapidly growing coronavirus pandemic. Since the very beginning, Scripps caregivers were called upon to respond like never before. Because of our longstanding commitment to patient and caregiver safety, quality and service, we were ready and swiftly rose to the challenge — and you were with us. When battling the pandemic required supplies and funds in monumental numbers, you gave generously. Your support had prepared us, and your support is what sustains us.

You make possible the incredible work of our physicians, nurses and caregivers. You help propel medical advancements and clinical research to meet the needs of a changing health care environment. Whether you have been a lifelong donor to Scripps or this was your first time investing in us, we take seriously our responsibility to carefully manage your investment.


In this stewardship report, you will read how your life-changing contributions are fueling innovation and advancing care. You will see ways philanthropy is supporting some of the latest technology and new support services for cancer patients. And you will see how your thoughtful investments are needed as we are expanding our facilities and services to meet the needs of our growing community. 


With you by our side, we continue to navigate through the previously unimaginable. And there is much on the horizon that gives me hope. We are stronger together.


We know there are many worthy organizations you can support. Thank you for choosing Scripps.
