The Tiny Miracle Fund is an initiative of the Jewish General Hospital Auxiliary. We are committed to supporting our tiniest and most vulnerable patients and their families through special programs and the purchasing of vital medical equipment for its NICU. To date, the Tiny Miracle Fund has raised more than $300,000 through various Auxiliary fundraising projects. The Auxiliary has committed $500,000 to the hospital’s new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
