Sharing our annual Gratitude Report with you is an honor because it provides a humbling, inspiring snapshot of everything you made possible. The 2020 Gratitude Report is especially meaningful. During an extremely challenging year, you brought light and hope through your gifts and support. We are eternally grateful for your support and friendship.
10 Foundations. 1 Mission.
Thanks to your generosity, Providence Foundations of Oregon raised
more than $38 million in 2020. This includes gifts to our ministries throughout Oregon – all 10 foundations, which represent our hospital campuses and statewide centers of excellence, such as cancer, heart, brain and spine, women and children’s, health care ethics and more.
You are an important partner in caring for our communities, and we are deeply appreciative.

Safety Net Fund for Families
With the help of Providence Beginnings social worker Maria Wunderbro, Shelly was able to secure affordable housing for her and her son Tiberius. Your gifts help mothers like Shelly access the resources they need to continue on their journey to independence.
Because of you, our scientists are making lifesaving discoveries that bring hope; our community outreach experts and partners provide programs to help keep people healthy, especially those who are poor and vulnerable; our services grow to meet expanding needs throughout Oregon; and our teams of doctors, nurses and other caregivers have the latest equipment to provide the best care.
We are privileged to have your friendship and support in this important work. Thank you for everything you do.

Helping seniors stay connected
When state mandates allowed only essential caregivers to enter the facilities at Providence Benedictine Nursing Center, residents were suddenly isolated from their families and one another. Thanks to your generosity, the Providence Benedictine team purchased electronic tablets so residents could stay connected with the outside world.
A new heart for Howard
Three years after Howard White's doctors told him he might need a heart transplant, he received one from Providence Heart Institute. He marvels at the generosity of Phil and Penny Knight to bring the program to Providence and close to home.
