Gifts of Cash

A cash gift is the most common donation made to the foundation. We accept personal checks, credit cards and cash. Gifts can be made online using a credit card. We can also set up a recurring gift so you can make an impact on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Gifts may be unrestricted and used in the area of greatest need, or you can choose to designate your gift toward a particular program or purpose.

Gifts totaling $1,000 or more qualify for membership in the Providence Society


Give online, phone or email.

Estate & Planned Gifts


Typically done in conjunction with estate planning, gifts of this type are an option for people of all income levels. Your planned gifts today support the work of Providence often for many years to come, and may allow you to make larger gifts than you could otherwise have made from your current assets.

Our Legacy Club honors those who have made provisions in their will or estate plan such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities and bequests that further benefit the Providence Mission in our community.

Caregiver Giving

As a Providence caregiver, regardless of your role, you already demonstrate your commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. Your impact is even greater with financial contributions made through the employee giving campaign. While gifts can be made at anytime.

We encourage you to make a difference and give a gift to Providence Southwest Washington Foundation in support of the mission to provide excellent and compassionate care to all. This is your opportunity to make an additional difference in the life of a patient, a co-worker or a program that means so much to you. You can designate your gift to the fund of your choice, and 100% of your gift goes to that cause.

Every gift given, no matter the amount, improves lives of people in our communities, people in our care and people we work with. Please give because you believe in the Providence Mission.

Providence Way

Honor a Loved One While Supporting the Mission of Providence

Providence Way brick pavers

Providence Way is a garden setting near the main entrance to St. Peter Hospital. It is a healing area lined with bricks and pavers, many of which are personalized with the names of those loved and honored. Patients, families and friends find comfort and solitude here.

Consider honoring a loved one or beloved pet, or memorialize the birth of a baby, marriage or anniversary. Or say thanks to an extraordinary caregiver of Providence.

Bricks and pavers range from $160 to $1,000 and are a symbolic and permanent way to honor someone that means so much to you. Purchases made after July 1, 2021, will be installed in September 2022.
