HSHS believes in giving back to the communities we serve. We support programs and projects that are consistent with our community benefit mission – namely to improve access to health services, enhance public health, advance increased general knowledge and relieve the burden of government to improve health.
Funding preference is given to programs/initiatives that address local priorities identified through the Community Health Needs Assessment process. For HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center, these include:
- Access to mental health care
- Access to healthy nutrition and physical activity
- Access to treatment and prevention of alcohol and drug use/abuse
Requests for support may be – but do not need to be – monetary in nature. All requests should be submitted via the online application.
NOTE: All funding recipients MUST possess non-profit status at the time of the request. Once a request has been submitted, we may contact you for additional information.
Please submit your request 60 days prior to the event/program start (as applicable). Due to the number of applications we receive, HSHS cannot fulfill all funding requests. A representative of HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center will notify you once a decision has been made.
