Welcome to the Thomas Health Foundation. The Foundation was founded in 1989 to support Herbert J. Thomas Jr., Memorial Hospital and later Saint Francis Hospital. Collectively, these hospitals have been serving the community for over 170 years. At the Foundation, we strive to ensure that all donations are stewarded directly toward the greatest needs of the hospitals and the patients we serve.
As a non-profit foundation, we partner with individuals and corporations who share our vision and support our philanthropic efforts. The Foundation is guided by a diversified Board of Directors comprised of outstanding community leaders who oversee the work of the Foundation through board meetings, various committee meetings and close collaboration with the Executive Director and staff.
What We Do
On a yearly basis, our most common contributions include providing free flu shots, offering emergency relief funding for employees, helping meet patients’ needs, awarding grants to hospital departments, supporting employees with scholarships, and raising funds for hospital needs. While those actions aren’t the only things we do, they provide a great snapshot of the type of work we focus on. If there is a specific donation request or a need you feel passionate about, please contact our office. We are always willing to listen and work with you to meet your philanthropic goals or needs.
Our Mission The Thomas Health Foundation, through excellence in philanthropy practices and cultivating giving relationships, provides valued resources that support Thomas Health’s mission to deliver compassionate and exceptional healthcare to improve the well-being of the communities it serves. The vision for the Foundation is to inspire generous giving which then in turn provides valued resources to advance the well-being of the communities Thomas Health serves.
