The St. Joseph Foundation
Since 1913, the mission at St.Vincent Kokomo has been to serve all persons, with special attention to the poor and vulnerable. The St. Joseph Foundation is a separately incorporated not-for-profit organization that exists solely to develop resources that support St.Vincent Kokomo and allow the hospital to fulfill its mission. The Foundation solicits and manages charitable gifts for a wide variety of projects, including new equipment and facilities, continuing medical education, and direct patient care for those who cannot afford it.
Gifts to the St. Joseph Foundation may be designated for a specific purpose or the donor may request that the gift be applied wherever the need is greatest. The Foundation accepts gifts of cash, stock, property, bequests, trusts or other planned gift arrangements. Every year more than 700 donors support the St.Vincent Kokomo mission through generous gifts to the Foundation. Often, contributions are made in honor or in memory of a beloved individual. Our donors include patients and their families, employees, physicians, volunteers, community leaders, businesses, service organizations, and members of the community who recognize the need to provide health services to those who cannot afford them.
Governed by the St. Joseph Foundation Board of Directors, a body of community leaders who provide stewardship for the funds and oversight for their expenditure, the St. Joseph Foundation distributes funds in a manner that strengthens the hospital and the community it serves.
