St. Joseph's Foundation

Supporting our hospital's mission established in 1895

St. Joseph's Foundation receives and manages funds given by donors to benefit St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The hospital, the Valley's first and longest-operating medical center, was established in 1895 by the Sisters of Mercy.

Following in the footsteps of its philanthropic founders, St. Joseph’s Foundation was established in 1981 to raise funds for the hospital’s charity clinics. Its mission was later expanded to include support of all areas of St. Joseph’s. Today, St. Joseph's Foundation raises millions of dollars each year for patient care, medical education and research at the hospital, where hundreds of thousands of people are treated each year.

A board of directors, made up of community leaders who serve on a voluntary basis, governs St. Joseph’s Foundation.

St. Joseph's Foundation is a nonprofit organization, as provided under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code - view our form. Contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with state and federal law.
