The Dove Society

The Dove Society allows individuals to support the Prairie Heart Foundation with an annual commitment.

Supporters who contribute $1,000 per year (gifts totaling $1,000 from July through June) are considered members of the Society. Along with donor recognition, Dove Society members receive a pin and invitations to special events and receptions with Prairie leadership and physicians.
