Partnering in Memory
Erin Aaberg Givans was a tireless advocate for children with complex health care needs. Because of her work on their behalf as the founding executive director of Children’s Specialty Care Coalition, access to care for children with chronic illnesses and rare conditions significantly improved in California. A dedicated wife and mother of two, Erin was revered by friends and colleagues alike for her integrity, giving spirit, and ability to affect policy in Sacramento.
Seeking a way to honor her life, and ensure that the cause she cared for so deeply continues, her husband and her colleagues at the Coalition turned to the Foundation. Because of our expertise in managing scholarships, they partnered with us to establish the Erin Aaberg Givans Memorial Scholarship to support women pursuing advanced education in public policy in California who, like Erin, are committed to ensuring California’s children have access to quality health care.
We enable people like you to customize their philanthropy, easily and effectively supporting the issues they care about – now and always.
