A Message from Jennifer C. Stewart, CFRE, President and CEO, Providence Healthcare Foundation:
“I come to work every day with a smile because of the people at Providence Healthcare – the patients, residents, clients, staff and volunteers. It is so easy to build strong relationships when we all have a shared purpose of seeing people go home healthy and with hope.
I believe Providence does some of the hardest work in health care. We give hope to people when they’ve been told there is none, we lift people up when they need strength, and we help people die with dignity. Our front line staff inspires me every day.
Providence has a history of making a significant difference with so little. Imagine what we could do with so much more. Every dollar that you give to us is appreciated, and essential. When you support Providence Healthcare, you are directly supporting the people who rely on us for care. You are touching hundreds of lives each year…and for that, we are truly grateful.”
Since 1987, Providence Healthcare Foundation has been working with our generous donors and the community-at-large to raise essential funds for Providence Healthcare. We would like take this opportunity to thank our friends for your outstanding dedication to the Foundation. All of our supporters – donors, ambassadors, and volunteers – have truly made a lasting difference through their generous spirits and unwavering commitment to Providence Healthcare.
Each year, we meet with the Providence Healthcare senior management team to identify equipment and program needs. This ensures our annual fundraising objectives are clearly defined, but more importantly, it ensures donor dollars are directed to the areas of greatest need.
In the fiscal year 2011/2012, the Foundation’s goal is to raise $3.1 million (net) to directly support the most urgent needs of Providence Healthcare. We will achieve this goal through various fundraising initiatives which include: active major gift and planned giving programs, our three special events, bi-annual direct mail appeals, third-party events, tribute program, family fundraising campaign and staff campaign. In fact, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are already well on our way to meeting our target!
