Give Back to the Future
Providence Giving Campaign Give back to the future: Support our patients, fellow caregivers and communities.
What would Providence programs and services be like if the Providence Giving Campaign had never happened? We don’t need time travel, a brilliant but bumbling scientist or a souped-up DeLorean to answer that question.
Without your gifts, Providence would not be able to afford items such as the latest medical technology, patient programs and services, life-saving medical discoveries and financial support to Providence caregivers in need. Your gifts truly make a difference. Thank you for your support – it means so much.
Let’s make Marty McFly, Doc and Biff proud! Please give back to support a bright future for those we are privileged to serve – our patients, our fellow caregivers and our communities.

Helping Hand Fund Your gift counts twice
Many caregivers choose to support the Helping Hand Fund at their local ministry. The Helping Hand program is administered by Catholic Charities and provides confidential, one-time financial and other resources to eligible caregivers who are experiencing a financial crisis or need temporary assistance.
In 2019, we are honored to welcome back the Providence Federal Credit Union as the leader of our matching challenge. The first $60,000 raised for the Helping Hand Fund will be matched dollar for dollar. That means your gift counts twice!
In 2018, the fund provided $189,094 in financial assistance to 152 caregivers. Housing and utility bills were among the most pressing needs last year.
The Providence Giving Campaign is an annual fundraising drive organized by the 10 Providence Foundations in Oregon. Caregivers are encouraged to participate and support Providence programs and ministries that are meaningful to them.
The campaign gives each employee an opportunity to give back and personally make a difference in the life of a patient, a co-worker or a member of the community.
Although the formal campaign runs Oct. 15 through Nov. 30, caregivers can sign-up through Dec. 15, 2019.
As a not-for-profit health system, Providence relies on the fundraising efforts of its 10 Foundations in Oregon to provide programs and services that otherwise would not be available.
Each of the eight Providence medical centers in Oregon has a foundation team; in addition, Providence Benedictine Nursing Center and Providence Child Center have foundations.
Your support of these programs and services helps give all patients access to the most advanced research, technology, services and programs.
Donations go directly to the Providence Foundation(s) and fund(s) that you specify.
You can split your gift among as many programs as you like.
If you donate to this year’s Helping Hand Fund, your gift goes directly to help eligible caregivers with one-time assistance during a time of need or financial crisis. Providence Federal Credit Union is generously matching donations to the Helping Hand Fund up to $60,000.
Payroll Deduction: When you make your commitment, you’ll have the option to select payroll deduction to make giving easy. Your gift will be spread out across each pay period. For the first time, this year's payroll deductions will be "recurring" and will not stop until, or if, you tell us otherwise.
The first deduction will occur on January 10, 2020. The minimum deduction is $2 per pay period. Your deduction will occur each pay period until, or if, you ever decide to stop. If you want to stop the deduction at some future time, you will need to call 503-215-5546.
Credit card: If you prefer, you can make either a one-time or reoccurring gift by credit card.
Check: Checks are also accepted at all of our local foundation offices.
Online: Payroll deduction provides the easiest way to contribute to the Giving Campaign. You also may make a one-time gift online with a credit card. Donate online ›
Paper Form: You are also welcome to complete a paper form to sign up for the campaign. Forms may be mailed or dropped off at your local foundation office. Download forms ›
Select the Providence Foundation(s) and fund(s) you want to support. If you don’t see the fund listed, you always have the option to select “Other” to designate a specific area you want to support.
The Helping Hand Fund is available to eligible Providence caregivers in Oregon who are experiencing a financial crisis and/or need extra support. The fund is administered by a third party, and caregivers' information is kept confidential.
We are grateful to our community partner, Providence Federal Credit Union, for providing a match of up to $60,000 that is donated to the Helping Hand Fund. That means your gift counts twice!
During the year, each ministry always has more needs than can be funded out of the annual operations budget. This can include things such as new technology/equipment, new buildings or expansions, and free or reduced cost of care for vulnerable patients. This “area of greatest need” fund helps fill in those gaps to better serve our patients and communities.
Each foundation’s board of trustees carefully determines where and how the “area of greatest need” gifts will be used within its specific ministry.
Making a contribution is a personal decision, and any amount is welcome and appreciated. All contributions to Providence Foundations are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law.
Your first deduction will occur on Jan. 10, 2020 and will continue each pay period until, or if, you tell us otherwise. That means your payroll deduction will continue in 2021 and beyond, unless you tell us to stop. This is different than how we've done payroll deductions in the past.
The minimum deduction is $2 per pay period.
