Support the Foundation

At the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation, we foster this giving spirit and continuously seek funding to enhance patient care, improve technologies, aid our healthcare providers with tools to provide exceptional healthcare and assist the most vulnerable in our community.

Donations can be unrestricted, supporting the area of greatest need, or can be designated to a specific need or fund. Honor a loved one through a memorial donation, make a lifelong gift through the creation of an endowment or leave a legacy gift through an estate.

Honoring Heroes 

This year’s annual campaign honors our health care heroes. There are heroes all around us – essential workers in every walk of life – health care providers, front-line staff, volunteers, philanthropists, chaplains, and more. In times of uncertainty, the helpers, the heroes, come together to help. We are overwhelmed with the feeling of support from our community and we are urging this generosity to continue as needs continue to grow. To honor your health care hero, visit
