Giving Back: Franciscan Foundation
In keeping with CHI Franciscan’s mission of building healthier communities, Franciscan Foundation occasionally assists new nonprofits, whose work aligns with our mission, in getting their organizations up and running. Depending on the needs of the organization, we can provide fiscal sponsorship, fundraising assistance and accounting services free of charge. Current and past organizations that have benefited from our support include the NW Furniture Bank, Rescue Mission, Hilltop Artists, Sound Outreach, Catherine Place, and Step by Step.
Franciscan Foundation also awards community grants to South Sound agencies working to address the health and well being of residents in the communities Franciscan serves. These grants are funded by unrestricted investment earnings on the Foundation’s assets.
As one of the largest organizations in the South Puget Sound region, we take our commitment to the communities and people we serve very seriously. Our non-profit support and community grants are just two of the many ways Franciscan goes above and beyond the community benefit requirements for tax-exempt, not-for-profit health care organizations.
The Franciscan Foundation is currently reviewing its grants process. There will be no September grants cycle. Please stay tuned for a future communication regarding the grants cycle for the remainder of 2019 and moving forward. Thank you for your understanding.
