Keep the Mission Alive – Support Providence Foundations
In keeping with the mission of the Sisters of Providence, who began providing compassionate care in the Pacific Northwest more than 150 years ago, our charitable foundations support their local communities and touch the lives of people who need help the most, especially the poor and the vulnerable. Providence foundations help fund the needs of the community that are above and beyond the budgets of Providence ministries, and we rely entirely on private support of generous donors and volunteers like you.
Providence Regional Medical Center Everett is in the midst of an unprecedented transformation to bring world-class medical care to the people of the Northern Puget Sound Region. The Campaign for Providence is the fundraising initiative – the largest ever undertaken in Snohomish County – launched to help support this historic project. More than $18 million has been raised so far from local physicians, employees, business leaders and individuals who want to ensure the best possible medical care remains strong and accessible to the people of our region.
The greatest part of living is giving. A long tradition of employee support helps the Providence Health Care Foundation fulfill vital funding needs at Providence Centralia Hospital, along with supportive housing programs, hospice and chemotherapy infusion services across Lewis County.
Gifts to Providence Health Care Foundation help care for the most vulnerable in our community and support breakthrough technology that saves lives. In 2017, the foundation awarded grants totaling more than $10 million to support Providence hospitals in Spokane and Stevens counties, as well as St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute.
Providence Hospice and Home Care of Snohomish County provides quality, timely, comprehensive medical care in the patient’s home. The foundation’s efforts have secured a three-year grant totaling $465,000 to establish a stronger community presence. By providing physical, emotional and spiritual support, trained staff and volunteers assist the patient and family as they work towards medical rehabilitation or a peaceful and dignified death.
Providence Hospice of Seattle provides end-of-life care and grief support to adults and children in King County. Your donations help those in need live their final days comfortably and with peace, while also supporting grieving families.
Providence Marianwood is a skilled nursing home that promises its very elderly residents a loving home as long as they need it, regardless of their ability to pay. In their 80s, 90s and even a few in their 100s, most have outlived their financial resources and are dependent on government programs. Marianwood provides more than $1 million in uncompensated care costs annually as well as extra programs and services to enhance quality of life.
Providence Mount St. Vincent, known as “The Mount,” is an intergenerational living care community for older adults in which we celebrate life, living and individual capability. Additionally, a child care center at The Mount provides opportunities for children and elderly residents to interact in planned activities. Fundraising supports residents, especially those who have outlived their life savings, along with programs that enrich their lives such as music, art and spiritual care.
Providence St. Mary Foundation is committed to enriching the lives of our friends, family and neighbors through exceptional local health care. All donations stay in our community to invest in innovative programs, equipment and capital projects as we work to create a healthier community, together. Our foundation is led by a group of 21 board members who live in the area and understand the needs of our community.
Providence St. Peter Foundation supports many of the Providence ministries across the care continuum in the Southwest Washington area, with a focus on caring for the poor and vulnerable. Supported ministries include Providence St. Peter Hospital, Providence SoundHomeCare and Hospice, Providence Mother Joseph Care Center, Providence St. Francis House, and Providence Medical Group. The foundation recently supported the opening of a new 21-bed critical care unit at Providence St. Peter Hospital, expanding access to the highest level of advanced care in the region. Donors also make many programs possible such as Animal-Assisted Activities and Therapy, No One Dies Alone, Hospice Respite and Comfort Care, and SoundCareKids - a bereavement program for children who have lost a loved one.
There are a range of ministries within Providence Senior and Community Services that are supported through special event fundraising. One example is the Providence O’Christmas Trees event, the largest annual fundraiser in Providence, bringing in $1.2 million in 2012 to help 15,200 people in need of health care, housing and supportive services. These funds support the quality of life for those with chronic and/or life limiting conditions living in our communities.
