Join Us in Building Healthier Communities Together

Stronger Together is a unique campaign, focusing on local and regional initiatives of the five site‑based Samaritan Foundations, in alignment with Samaritan Health Services’ strategic priorities of quality & service excellence, employee engagement, community partnership and sustainability. 

Philanthropy is more important than ever to address the social determinants of health throughout the stages of life. Our priority is to support initiatives that don’t generate revenue, rather they support our mission in action. With this campaign, we want to:

  • Unite community partners at all levels, and welcome new support through inclusive outreach.
  • Provide a menu of priority projects and initiatives that address the most pressing needs locally and regionally.
  • Feature population health initiatives to address the social determinants of health.

Our Goal Is to Raise $35 Million Together by 2025

Samaritan’s five site-based foundations will contribute toward the Stronger Together campaign in a shared commitment toward the health care needs of all people in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.

Albany: $5 million         Corvallis: $15 million    
Lebanon: $5 million      Lincoln City: $5 million
Newport: $5 million

Finding Our Strength

“Working together — with donors and communities in support of our local hospitals — is where we find our strength. We are committed to engaging and nurturing partnerships with local supporters to Build Healthier Communities Together — both within and beyond our hospital walls. As an organization, we are dedicated to serving our communities as an inclusive, respectful, equitable and responsive health care system.”

–Doug Boysen, President/CEO of Samaritan Health Services
