Our mission is to meet the personal and emotional needs of cancer and pediatric patients, high-risk pregnancy mothers and U.S. Veterans facing life-defining health care moments. 

GIN fulfills on its mission by awarding Get Involved Now grants to hospitals seeking support to provide special moments or address non-health-related patient needs.

Grant applications are accepted throughout the year, and are reviewed regularly by an appointed committee of GetWellNetwork employees. Proposals that align with GIN’s mission are typically approved and awarded a grant of up to $500 to be used to improve the hospital experience for patients and families.

Recent Get Involved Now grants have been used to:


  • Sponsor events like play dates and movie nights for pediatric patients and their families

  • Purchase and deliver meals on behalf of organizations that provide temporary housing to families whose loved ones are hospitalized

  • Brighten the day for new mom’s on a high-risk pregnancy unit with big, colorful bouquets for Mother’s Day

  • Subsidize costs of toys and interactive games distributed to pediatric patients and their families

  • Fund care packages for our nation’s heroes hospitalized at VA medical centers
