Volunteering and third sector

Volunteer associations and the third sector represent a fundamental resource for the daily lives of doctors, operators and above all patients treated at the Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio.

Welcoming hospitalised patients and their families, especially children, support for daily activities, contributions for scientific research and training of medical staff. If you are a volunteer association, these are the three areas of intervention for which you can:

  • make a contribution;
  • propose partnerships for projects or offer your own;
  • sign a memorandum of understanding with the Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio.
