Monument Health Foundation

At Monument Health we believe “It all starts with heart”. As the philanthropic giving department of Monument Health its our duty to guide donors and host events that in return support our caregivers and physicians so they can do what they do best….save lives. Whether it’s a 1lb. baby in the NICU, a mom who was just diagnosed with breast cancer or a grandfather who is a patient at the Hospice House, we are honored to serve the people we support, but more importantly grateful for the individuals that believe in our mission and give back to something greater then themselves. We truly believe that

Every Gift Makes a Difference.

All donations are used for programs, patient care environments or equipment. The Monument Health Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization.
