Meeting Local Needs
At Providence St. Mary Foundation
Help Us Stay Responsive to Need
A gift to the area of greatest need provides Providence St. Mary with flexible funds to ensure the latest technology, equipment and patient-centered programs are available to every individual who requires our care. Having flexible funds available makes it possible for Providence St. Mary to respond quickly to emerging and high-priority needs.
The Foundation funds equipment, technology and other health care programs offered by Providence St. Mary Medical Center. The Greatest Need Fund is an "unrestricted fund" that can be accessed by hospital caregivers and physicians through the Foundation's grant process and enables the Foundation to respond to a variety of local needs.
Unrestricted funds are allocated by the Providence St. Mary Foundation Board of Directors, with thoughtful consideration, and in coordination with local hospital leadership. Funding supports programs and services that would not be possible without the private support of generous donors like you.
