Founded in 1979, the Saint Francis Foundation is a San Francisco-based non-profit organization entrusted to provide philanthropic support to Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and the community the hospital serves. Through the legacy and continuing generosity of caring and compassionate donors, the Foundation is responsible for shepherding funds, reviewing and distributing grants with the goal of fostering outstanding health services to the local community.
Since its establishment in 1905, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital has stood on the slopes of Nob Hill as pillar of strength and compassion for the community. Enduring two world wars and two earthquakes, the Hospital continues to contend with the economic forces affecting health care delivery and costs. The partnership between the Foundation and the Hospital is a critical path to help meet the challenges of the current environment and ensure that the vision of a community hospital, named for the City’s patron saint, is allowed to flourish. The Foundation and the Hospital work in coordination to deliver compassionate, high quality health services, while serving and advocating for our sisters and brothers who are poor and disenfranchised. The partnership extends to our neighbors in the surrounding community, to strive to improve their quality of life and thus their health.
