Area of Greatest Need
Providence Southwest Washington Foundation
You Make a Real Difference
Your gift to the area of Greatest Need allows our Foundation to respond quickly to our community's most pressing healthcare needs. These needs might include new medical equipment, capital improvements, health education and patient support programs such as Animal Assisted Therapy, No One Dies Alone and Music Thanatology.
In 2020, Providence Southwest Washington Foundation provided more than $3.3 million in funding for mission-driven programs and services to build healthier communities in our area. Every gift makes a profound impact, from new equipment and services for patient care to providing compassionate programs that tend to a patient’s heart and soul. Your generosity and compassion has helped inspire hope, health and healing.
Patient Care Programs
Every year, donor support makes possible many patient care programs including: PAAT/PAWS Animal Assisted Therapy, Sexual Assault and Child Maltreatment Services, Mental Health Access Program, Dental Residency, Music Thanatology and No One Dies Alone.
Women and Children’s Services
Because of donor support, Providence’s Family Birthing Centers and PMG Women’s Health received support for new equipment including ultrasounds, cribs, bladder scanner, neonatal warmers, Kaleidoscope Play & Learn Center, and perinatal bereavement resources.
Patients who are disabled by disease or injury can improve quality of life through rehab therapies thanks to our donors. Funding provides vital medical equipment to treat vertigo, recumbent bikes for physical therapy, specialized treatment tables and walkers, and ultrasounds to help improve muscular retraining.
