Ascension St. John and Providence Foundations

How you can make a difference today

Many of you have contacted us to ask what you can do to help in this unprecedented time of COVID-19. One of the greatest ways you can help is to support our healthcare heroes who are dealing with this crisis on a daily basis.

For many caregivers, the current environment is causing financial challenges and personal sacrifices. Many have spouses who have lost jobs, and they can't make ends meet.

To help address these issues and more, we are using our Associate Hardship Fund to help our caregivers cover extra personal costs incurred during these difficult times. Your gifts to this fund assist associates with emergent needs such as: eviction or foreclosure of an associate’s primary residence; medication expenses for associates, spouses or dependents; funeral expenses for members of their immediate family; payment of bills for necessary utilities, to prevent shut off; and groceries.

If you would like to contribute to the Associate Hardship Fund, please make a gift online here.

Your support will have double the impact, thanks to the generosity of several donors who have provided funding of up to $55,000 to match gifts received in support of the Associate Hardship Fund.

We appreciate any support you can give to our caregivers who are working long days, sacrificing personal time with family and friends, putting themselves on the frontlines of patient care. They truly are the heroes who are fighting this pandemic every day.

Thank you for your support!
