Giving to St. John’s

Our Mission

The St. John’s ICARE Foundation fosters a culture of philanthropy to secure, manage and distribute gifts in support of the mission and vision of Episcopal Health Services/St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.

Our ICARE Values

Innovation, Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Equity

What started out small is now developing into something big and we want you to be the first to know about our next step.

We are excited to announce the creation of the St John’s ICARE Foundation and are asking for donations to help us grow. The mission of our new foundation is to foster a culture of philanthropy to secure, manage and distribute gifts in support of the mission and vision of St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.

How did we get to this point?

Over the last three, we have built this culture through our Foundation department by raising awareness and funds in support of equipment, capital projects, special programs and community initiatives. Because of the tremendous support from people like you, over 1000 donors have contributed:

  • $20,000 for a new GE Giraffe Incubator Carestation and $20,000 for 4 GE BiliSoft Phototherapy Systems through our Giving Tuesday Campaigns.
  • $100,000 towards our Labor and Delivery project and $120,000 towards equipment for the new Margaret O. Carpenter Women’s Health Center through our Invitational Golf Tournaments.
  • In-kind donations of food, PPE and comfort items, as well as $10,000 towards a recharge room for our healthcare heroes through our COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
  • Over $400,000 in private grant money to fund projects and programs, such as Telehealth and the new Mobile Health Unit.
  • $10,000 through corporate sponsorships to market the new Mobile Health Unit.
  • Donations and in-kind support, with the help of the Hospital Auxiliary, provided 1000 school backpacks and over 200 holiday toys for children in the community, 150 baby bags for new moms delivering at St. Johns and holiday gifts to over 50 families though our “Adopt-a-Family” program.

Looking Ahead.

We plan to officially launch our new Foundation on April 28, 2022 at a special event at the Rockaway Hotel. Our goal now is to raise money to build and strengthen the new St. John’s ICARE Foundation to ensure the future of the hospital. Given that the new foundation is a non-profit organization under Episcopal Health Services Inc., your donation is tax-deductible and serves as an excellent way to give back to your community. We graciously accept gifts of any amount and thank you for your support.

Take the next step with us. Show you care about healthcare, by becoming a founding donor to the new St. John’s ICARE Foundation today. As the only hospital on the Peninsula, our future depends on it. Thank you for your consideration. To donate, please visit the link here.
