About the Foundation
HSHS St. Mary's Foundation was organized in 1988 to assist the hospital with philanthropic donations. Over the years, we have worked alongside the leadership of St. Mary’s Hospital to provide essential equipment and technology to assist in the care of our patients.
The Foundation has grown from a humble program, in support of the hospital, affording St. Mary’s the ability to concentrate on the well-being of our patients. These additional sources of income enable St Mary's to continuously upgrade the medical care provided to the people of Decatur and surrounding areas.
We are still humble and owe our gratitude to the thousands of individuals, families, board members, physicians, nurses, colleagues and businesses who have supported the mission of St. Mary’s Hospital through their patronage to the foundation.
Please remember us as you make your charitable gifts, including estate planning and memorial tributes.
