Community Contributions & Sponsorship Requests

As an active member and strong supporter of the communities we serve, St. Francis Hospital is a long-time supporter of many organizations through both monetary and in-kind donations made each year. It is our practice to contribute to activities, organizations and causes throughout the Chattahoochee Valley that align with our mission of Making Communities Healthier.

Our goal is to focus support on the following areas:

  • Health and wellness
  • Children, youth and education
  • Civic enhancement
  • Community-based organizations including cultural and humanities

In evaluation of sponsorship opportunities, priority will be given to organizations that are aligned with the areas listed above. Preference will be given to organizations with which hospital associates are involved as board members, advisory committee members, event chairs and/or active and engaged volunteers.

Only organizations with 501(c)(3) status are eligible for funding.
