About the Foundation

The PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center Foundation is a privately chartered nonprofit corporation, founded in 1983 with the sole purpose of attracting, managing and disbursing charitable gifts made for the benefit of PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who has fiduciary and legal responsibility for its operations. The Board of Directors, which is made up of donors and friends of the Medical Center, assists the Foundation in carrying out its fundraising, gift processing, investment and disbursement responsibilities.

The Foundation raises funds according to strategic priorities set by the Medical Center. Since 1983, the Foundation has raised almost $100 million to ensure the finest medical care for the residents of Southwest Washington.  Projects benefiting from private funds include the Firstenburg Tower, the Holtzman Twins Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Kearney Breast Center, the Thomas and Sandra Young Neurosciences Center, and many others. The Medical Center provides the Foundation's budget so all funds raised can directly benefit patients and improve the health and welfare of local residents.

Exceptional medicine, extraordinary care

Over the years, generous donations to the PeaceHealth Southwest Foundation have provided a variety of equipment and programs to benefit patients and improve the health and welfare of local residents.
