Darlene Shiley has donated millions of dollars to Scripps over the years. Her most recent gift established the Donald P. and Darlene V. Shiley Musculoskeletal Center at Scripps Clinic, Torrey Pines. Orthopedic care became a cause close to her heart, and like many donors, she and her husband started out as grateful patients. Over the years, their focus turned to supporting research. Find out more about her philanthropy to Scripps Clinic, who inspires her, and what advice she has for those looking to give back here.
