Who we are

Beacon Health Foundation is the fundraising support for all of Beacon Health System. When you give to the Foundation, you’re saving the lives of sick kids while keeping them close to home. You’re ensuring underserved families receive exceptional health care, regardless of financial situation. You’re helping students access scholarships for nursing and other clinical professions. You’re doing so much, just by giving.

What we do

Beacon Health Foundation works with donors who have a passion to help people through lifesaving, critical and routine health care needs. The passion and dedication of our donors for saving lives inspired a young – heroic – cancer survivor to reach new heights to win Paralympic gold. So can you. 

You can help save the life of a critically ill newborn baby. You can make the road to recovery smoother for a teenager involved in a traumatic car accident. You can give hope to a young mother diagnosed with breast cancer. You can enhance quality of life for a senior living with diabetes.

Every gift — in any amount — matters.
