The Providence Healthcare Network has been a non-profit ministry since it was founded in 1905 by the Daughters of Charity to care for the sick and serve the poor. To this day, Providence continues to open the doors of its healing ministry to all.

Even with all of its expansion and advancements in medical technology over the years, Providence rarely borrows funds. Providence has depended upon the charitable giving of its supporters to continue serving with the compassion of Christ and with the excellence today's healthcare demands.

The Providence Foundation, a 501 (c3) tax exempt corporation, was established in 1993 to secure philanthropic gifts from the community as a means of providing financial assistance to the services of the Providence Healthcare Network.

Three special groups support the Providence Foundation.

  • Founders Society - By making an annual gift of $1,000 or more, donors become members. A pledge or gift of $50,000 or more qualifies donors for life membership into the Founders Society
  • Vincentian Society - Donors indicating that they intend to make a planned gift to the Providence Foundation qualify for membership
  • Providence Forum - A young professionals group (ages 25-45) who act as ambassadors for Providence and volunteer to support Providence events.

Endowment Giving

An excellent way to provide ongoing support to the ministry of Providence is to invest in either the Providence Foundation General Endowment Fund, or the recently established Long Term Care Endowment Fund.
