Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation serves as the gateway to hope and health for Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia’s most vulnerable people. We raise funds and awareness to support the advanced medical treatment offered in Ascension St. Vincent’s healthcare facilities and to help care for individuals and families who are impoverished and underinsured through our community outreach ministries. Our mission is based on the tradition of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul who founded us more than a century ago. In that spirit, we provide spiritually centered, holistic care for all people.
We offer those in need kindness, comfort and healing – and invite those with blessings to join our mission to improve the health and well-being of the communities we are so blessed to serve.
Help Us Celebrate National Doctors’ Day on March 30
This year, we’re asking you to recognize our healthcare heroes on National Doctors’ Day through a contribution to Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation. Please also take a moment to share your experiences with the doctors and caregivers at Ascension St. Vincent’s. We will convey your messages directly to them, so they can see how their energy, efforts, and compassion do make a difference.
