About Samaritan Foundations

Did you know? Samaritan Health Services has five different foundations throughout the system. Our foundations play an important role in meeting the health care needs of the community by funding facilities, equipment, services, education and compassionate care. We work together to provide innovative medicine and world-class quality in a way that supports the values of the communities we serve.

We work together! The Samaritan Foundations team works across the system. From our local fundraisers to our coordinated central operations team, we are all working toward the same mission. When you make a gift to one of our Samaritan Foundations you can trust that your gift designation will be honored.
