Philanthropic Foundations

Several hundred local community members serve on the boards of directors of affiliated philanthropic foundations. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the community members who volunteer their time to oversee local philanthropic programs and activities.

Philanthropy Changes Lives

During 2010, Sutter Health and its affiliates received nearly $55 million in contributions from our generous donors. Philanthropic support helps us meet the changing, diverse needs of our communities.

If you would like to learn more about our funding initiatives, including how you can further support excellent health care in your community, please visit our "Ways to Give" section of our main website. You may also reach us by phone at 916-286-6826 or by email at philanthropy@sutterhealth.org.
