We can also set up a recurring gift so you can make an impact on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.

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.

Physician and Caregiver Giving

Caregivers holding We Give sign

As a physician, caregiver or employee, every day you demonstrate your commitment to making a difference in the lives of others in our community. Thank you for everything you do to help Providence fulfill its Mission in providing compassionate and excellent care close to home. You provide hope, healing and wellness to those in need. It is your commitment to our Mission that makes Providence truly exceptional.

Your impact could be even greater, by making a gift through Providence Foundation. This is your opportunity to help make our communities better, healthier places to live, work and play—to make an even bigger difference in the life of a patient, co-worker or program. You can designate your gift to the program or service fund that is most meaningful to you and 100% of your donation will go to the programs and services you choose.

Your gift matters and helps us offer compassionate programs such as: 

  • Caregiver Emergency Assistance which assists our local caregivers with emergency financial assistance.
  • No One Dies Alone (NODA) which ensures that a hospitalized patient is not alone when they reach their end-of-life journey.
  • Sexual Assault Clinic and Child Maltreatment Center which provides compassionate services to children who need special services during a significant time of need.

  • Behavioral Health, Cardiac, Hospice, Oncology, Palliative Care—just to name a few. There are many more you can select from.

Every gift given improves the quality of life for our patients, family, and friends living and working in our communities. Thank you for choosing to make a difference.

Honor a Health Care Hero

Is there a Providence employee you'd like to thank?

Honor a local health care hero and recognize a caregiver who made a difference for you or your loved one.

A gift of appreciation for the care you or a loved one received is a gift of inspiration—for the doctor, nurse, therapist or staff member who took care of you.

Honor a caregiver with a gift of any size to Providence Southwest Washington Foundation. Caregivers will be notified that a gift was made in their honor and receive special recognition along with your message of gratitude when your gift is received.

To share your story, or a message that we can share with your caregiver, email us at ProvidenceSWFoundation@providence.org.

Providence Way

Honor a Loved One While Supporting the Mission of Providence

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, 2022, will be installed in September 2023.
