Madison Regional Health Foundation

2021 Comes to a Close

As 2021 draws to a close, the Madison Regional Health Foundation cannot thank you enough for supporting us in a tremendous year. The selflessness of the Madison community is more remarkable than it has ever been and will always continue to amaze me. You could say this year was even more difficult than 2020 because as we continue to battle the COVID-19 virus, we are also starting to build back from all that we have lost, which can create beautiful beginnings! Your donations to Madison Regional Health Foundation support more than just Madison Regional Health System, but all of the community's healthcare needs for the present and in years to come. The Madison Regional Health Foundation has big things planned for 2022. We hope you continue to take this journey with us as we build a stronger, healthier, and safer community.

Donations to the Madison Regional Health Foundation are critical to supporting and having access to quality healthcare close to home. From growing our endowment, buying new equipment, hiring new staff and professionals, and inspiring philanthropy, each dollar raised is a step closer to bettering our community. Thank you for believing in the Foundation’s mission and supporting local healthcare.

About Us

The Madison Regional Health Foundation was established in 2013 to promote and advocate for local health care philanthropy. The Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.

The Foundation is building an endowment to address the future needs of the MRHS and the Madison community. Through this endowment, your gifts will have an even greater impact. Contributions can be made to the areas of:

Future Needs

Established to ensure that long-term goals can be achieved, the Future Needs fund focuses on supporting projects that address the changing needs of MRHS and surrounding communities. As our communities grow, medical needs change, and technology advances, your gift will help to keep quality, progressive health care close to home for our patients.

Scholarship & Recruitment

Through scholarship and recruitment initiatives, the Foundation wants to ensure that you can invest in those who want to provide high quality care for our area. The Scholarship and Recruitment fund will provide assistance to those wishing to return to or start their careers in Madison at MRHS.

Health & Well-Being

MRHS is dedicated to providing the area with health services and education, some at no cost to the individual. Through our community needs assessment, we have learned that there is an interest in preventative care and other well-being areas. Your contribution will allow us to expand our services and educational opportunities for our patients and the community through this fund.

Our Foundation, Your Legacy

Donors to MRHF have already impacted patients' lives in creating therapeutic and comforting environments in the facility. The stained glass within the chapel/meditation room and benches throughout the healing garden were made possible through gifts from our donors. We have purchased state-of-the-art equipment like the electric parallel bars in physical therapy and have awarded scholarships to future pharmacists.



The Madison Regional Health Foundation exists to support the Madison Regional Health System and the healthcare needs of the greater Madison community. The Foundation will seek donations and raise funds to be utilized for capital improvements, enhancements to patient care, technology upgrades and to otherwise fulfill Madison Regional Health System's mission of healthcare philanthropy in the Madison area.
