Mission PLUS(+) Fund
Our Mission has always called us to serve the poor and vulnerable. Now, with the current pandemic upon us, more people than ever are losing their jobs, insurance, and hope. No matter the reason, we are here for people when they need us.
Not only are we called to serve our community but now more than ever we are called to support our caregivers. The COVID-19 virus has placed an incredible strain on our clinical teams.
We are thankful for all of the outreach we have received asking how you can support our healthcare ministry during this unprecedented time. Ascension St. Vincent’s is now accepting in-kind donations of supplies for personal protective equipment (PPE) and supplies.
You can also support Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation through our Mission PLUS(+) Fund created in an effort to keep our outreach ministries thriving and to help with our caregivers.
What is the Mission PLUS(+) Fund?
In a response to the requests to help from our supporters and community, Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation has established a new Mission PLUS(+) Fund to meet this unprecedented challenge.
Through this fund your gift will support Ascension St. Vincent’s efforts and community by:
- Continuing to help the poor and vulnerable patients through our outreach ministries
- Helping cover our hospital’s supply, equipment or program needs related to COVID-19
- Supporting and recognizing caregivers’ during COVID-19
This fund will allow Ascension St. Vincent’s hospital leadership to respond to challenges as they arise. These restricted funds provide broad and flexible support for Ascension St. Vincent’s outreach ministries and our caregivers which allows us to direct these gifts to the areas of greatest need for Ascension St. Vincent’s during this rapidly changing public health situation.
Right now your gifts are more important than ever.
Thank you for your support.
