History of The Washington Hospital Foundation
The Washington Hospital Foundation was established in 1993 to help financially support The Washington Hospital, a non-profit health system that depends on the charitable giving of our community. The Foundation raises funds through donations, grants, and sponsorships by individuals, organizations, and corporations.
Donors help the hospital fulfill its mission to provide great patient care with the latest medical technology in state-of-the-art facilities now and into the future.
Every year, the Foundation asks families, friends, and community members to support the hospital as part of our giving campaigns. In fiscal year 2012, the Foundation had 4,761 donors and raised $2,438,415. The Foundation has raised more than $53,000,000 since it was founded.
Donors also support the hospital during capital campaigns to raise money for construction projects to better meet our community’s health needs.
Building on Our Promise Campaign was our most recent capital campaign (2006-2009) for the largest building project in the hospital’s history. A new hospital wing including the Dr. E. Ronald and Constance Salvitti Center for Emergency Care, Ralph B. and Carol J. Andy Critical Care Center, and Surgical Services Center of Excellence opened in 2009.
The Washington Hospital Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. All contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible and may be designated however you choose.
