Investing in Our Community

Walk into our hospital and look around. Every caregiver you see - every doctor, every nurse, every cook, every custodian, every volunteer - is committed to our patients.  Providence's promise to "Know me, care for me, ease my way" is central to how we operate.

We cannot tackle this work alone. Our founders, the Sisters of Providence, gathered the support of people like you to meet urgent community needs. Together, they built schools, orphanages and Oregon’s first permanent hospital, Providence St. Vincent.

Today we admit more than 30,000 patients each year. More than 80,000 people come to us for emergency care and 34,000 come for healing surgeries. More babies begin their lives here than any other place in Oregon. We are home to renowned institutes for heart and neurological care.

Your Impact

Providence St. Vincent Medical Foundation raises funds to improve and expand health care for our community. Through donor gifts, we support programs and services offered by Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. Our ability to achieve excellence relies heavily on the generosity of donors like you.

Why Support Our Foundation

Your generosity is the cornerstone of everything we do at Providence.

We connect people with Providence to advance research, health care and wellness. We believe that passion is at the heart of giving. We would love to work with you to match your passion to the program or project that is most meaningful to you. Your gift truly makes a difference to those we serve.


Donations to Providence St. Vincent Medical Foundation help the most vulnerable in our community. For example, through the Better Outcomes thru Bridges program, our caregivers empower individuals on their journey toward better well-being by engaging with compassion, dignity and integrity. 


Providence has a reputation for providing world-class medical care. The foundation supports this work by funding equipment, research and services that improve health and quality of life for those we serve. 


Your generosity helps us support the programs, services, education and equipment that impacts and saves lives. All gifts stay local, supporting the Mission and work of our Providence ministries.
