Making an Annual Gift Makes a Difference

Have you considered how you can make a difference in someone's life? How you can assist a patient with cancer? A family with a critically ill child? A person with no health insurance? By making a gift to the St. John Providence Health System Foundations Annual Fund, you can reach thousands of patients and families each year and make a positive impact on their lives.

The Annual Fund supports priority needs throughout St. John Providence Health System (SJPHS). Whether you choose to make a gift to a specific hospital or program or to make an undesignated gift, your support helps to provide comfort and care to all who come through our doors.

Support from the community assists many people

One patient who benefited from the generosity of our donors through the Care of the Poor Fund at Providence Hospital was a 57-year-old, single man with four grown children. The patient was employed full time as a security guard and able to live independently in a small apartment. However, his employer did not offer health insurance as a benefit, and he was unable to pay for private health insurance. So when the man was diagnosed with gastric bleeding and a pituitary tumor, he turned to the Thea Bowman Community Health Center, sponsored by St. John Providence Health System, for help. 
Through the Care of the Poor Fund, the patient received outpatient and inpatient testing, surgery and intensive care services at Providence Hospital at no cost. Today, he is feeling well and has returned to work. He is very grateful for the assistance from St. John Providence Health System.

Your gift, together with those of other supporters, can help those in need like the man above.

Donors like you who support SJPHS are recognized for their generosity on donor walls and in the SJPHS Foundations annual report.
