Ways to Give
Providence Mount St. Vincent Foundation
You give an amazing gift when you make a donation to this Foundation. Your financial support immediately and measurably makes an impact on the lives of older adults as they journey through the transition from independent living to increasingly relying on the help of others. Your gift also helps provide activities, programs and services that enrich quality of life for all our residents.
Uncompensated care is our greatest need!
As the average age of our residents continues to climb and economic conditions erode the value of the assets and retirement income of our residents, the need for uncompensated care is increasing at an astounding rate!
In 2016, we project that fully 41% of our skilled nursing residents will be on Medicaid. The gap between government reimbursement and the cost to provide care for these residents is:
- $161 per resident per day
- $13,000 per day for all residents on Medicaid
- $391,000 per month
- $4.7 Million per year
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Gifts may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one, a colleague, a friend or acquaintance. We will send a letter to the person being honored or to the family of the person being memorialized to inform them that the Foundation has received a gift in their honor or memory. We will include your contact information but not the amount of your gift.
Wills, bequests, annuities and estate gifts are a vital source of support for the charitable work of Providence Mount St. Vincent. Learn more about planned giving.

"Emilie’s Treasures" Thrift Boutique
Located on The Mount's 1st floor near the Gift Shop and Espresso Bar, Emilie's Treasures is accessible to all residents, staff, family members and supporters. The shop is entirely run by volunteers and 100% of the sales are donated to support the residents and programs of The Mount.
- Open Monday - Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Emilie’s Treasures is filled with special items – some of great "antique" value, others of great bargain value. The goal is to provide a shopping experience for residents, staff and friends while generating additional income for The Foundation to give back to residents. Quality donations are accepted daily.
The Emilie's shop is operated entirely by volunteers, so if you’d like to help with planning or as a salesperson, please contact Storey Squires at (206) 937-3701, ext. 28170 or email@example.com. We welcome your donations of new or lightly used household items, jewelry and women's clothing for resale in the shop. There is a donation closet on the 1st floor of The Mount close to the reception desk. Please call ahead for furniture donations.
Donations of goods and services may be accepted as well. The Emilie’s Treasures Thrift Boutique welcomes donations. In addition, we accept donations such as travel packages, fine art, and recreational experiences for our annual gala auctions and events. Please call us at (206) 938-6141 to discuss potential in-kind donations.
Sharing your time and talent with our residents and staff is another wonderful way to give to The Mount. Please see our Volunteer web page for more information. Or call (206) 937-3701 ext 28170 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
