St. Francis Foundation

The St. Francis Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created to support the work of St. Francis, whose mission is to encourage a healthy community by providing health education programs, informational services, and quality medical care without regard to race, religion, age, sex, or ability to pay. The purpose of the Foundation is to seek, acquire, and manage funds contributed from public and private sources to support those programs and projects determined to be in accord with the mission of St. Francis. Such programs or services may be administered by St. Francis’s own medical or administrative professionals or in collaboration with other community agencies of compatible purpose.

Employee Campaign

Each year the employees of St. Francis generously support the employee campaign to fund programs at the hospital as well as in the community.

In 2014–2015, more than $79,000 was raised for the following programs:

  • Digital Mammography
  • Area of Greatest Need
  • Community Health Charities
  • Employee Stewardship Program
  • Foundation Endowment
  • Heartland United Way
  • Project Care

Thank you to every employee who made a pledge, cash gift, or PTO donation. Each gift was vitally important to the campaign.

Tree of Love

During the Christmas season of peace, faith, hope, and love, the St. Francis Foundation invites people to remember someone special and give a gift to the entire community.

You are invited to create a Tree of Love ornament as a tribute to a friend or loved one who has touched your life. The Tree of Love is displayed in the main lobby of St. Francis throughout the holiday season. You will also be invited to attend the Tree of Love Vigil.

Hullabaloo for a Healthy Community

Every January, the St. Francis Foundation chases the winter doldrums away with Hullabaloo for a Healthy Community. Live music, dancing, raffles, and a supper and dessert buffet make for a fun-filled evening. With the support of area restaurants and the hard work of numerous volunteers, Hullabaloo is a great way to warm up the winter and support the St. Francis Foundation.
