About the CHI St. Francis Health Foundation

CHI St. Francis Health Foundation makes it possible to support what's close to your heart. We are a 501 c(3) nonprofit that supports the local hospital, nursing home, clinics, and assists Hospice with its donation processing.

We work hard to keep health care close to home and are able to offer an outstanding rural health care experience because people like you value and support it. The money our Foundation receives is reinvested directly into the community.

We Support Community

The Foundation gives back to our community through direct hospital and nursing home improvements, education and outreach, scholarships, and various area grant opportunities and partnerships. We are always looking to support our community!

We Need You

In many ways, we are still the same hospital that the Franciscan Sisters founded here in 1899. Over 32,000 babies have been born in our walls and 255,000 patients admitted into our care since then. We serve thousands of people in a large rural service area covering five counties.

We work hard to keep these services available for everyone. Donations and gifts are a significant part of this. Our achievements would not be possible without the investment and generosity of people like you.

We Appreciate You

Your generosity and contributions are acknowledged in many ways. The Donor Wall of Honor in the hospital recognizes you and the different levels of giving. Your name or business is recognized and advertised if sponsoring an item, event, or donation.

Postponed: Spring Fest Casino Night

Updates to come soon!

CHI St. Francis Healthcare and Wellness Foundation would like to request your support for Spring Fest 2020!  Spring Fest is a transition from our long-standing Harvest Fest event. 

Spring Fest supports the St Francis Foundation’s mission of promoting healthier communities. Keeping quality healthcare services in our community is costly. Outside payer sources and reimbursement by third party payers like Medicare, Medicaid, or insurance does not cover all expenses. This is where Spring Fest gives YOU an opportunity to help us locally!  This year, we are asking for financial support for our Vital Equipment and Technology fund. Our efforts will go towards acquiring essential equipment and technology upgrades that may not be allotted for in the Catholic Health Initiatives budget.

Additionally, this year the foundation has chosen another local organization, to share in the generosity of our fundraiser. This year’s benefactor is the Three Rivers Activity Complex (TRAC).  This initiative is an exciting opportunity for our communities. While still in the planning stages, the TRAC is expected to house the following:

  • Two gymnasium courts
  • Two multi-use arenas with sheets of ice and/or turf
  • Gymnastics
  • Indoor playground
  • Ninja warrior course
  • Indoor walking track
  • Community spaces (meetings, art classes, events, etc.)
  • Kitchen/Concessions
  • This facility will also become the new home of BW Blades Hockey, Southern Valley Figure Skating Club and Three Rivers Gymnastics

Spring Fest will be a very special evening to raise funds for two worthy causes.  

A Special Thanks to our Partners!
