What is the FLETCH Club?

FLETCH stands for "Friends Love East Tennessee Children's Hospital" and is represented by an adorable 14" brown plush bear named FLETCH. FLETCH Club members are part of Children's Hospital's sustained giving program. East Tennessee Children's Hospital is a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt institution. Without a tax exemption, Children's Hospital would be forced to pass along our increased expenses to our patients. As our number of patients grows each year, so does our need for more equipment and larger facilities to serve our community. Charitable donations are the lifeblood of our hospital, and FLETCH Club members are the driving force behind helping us heal kids. You can become a FLETCH Club member by pledging $18 per month for as long as you care to give.
