Above and Beyond
Share the Love
Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation thanks you for your past support and for making our Above and Beyond campaigns so successful throughout the years. Thanks to you and your generosity last year, we were able to make possible more than 5,200 grief sessions for children and adults, 3,000 patient encounters at the Baptist Operation Outreach mobile health care unit for the homeless, over 200 scholarships for students at Baptist Health Sciences University, and more than $142,000 in employee emergency and patient financial assistance. We hope to do even more in 2020. If you can, please give generously and help us share all our love. Thank you.
Why We Give
What motivates someone to give to the Baptist Foundation? Well, the answers are as varied as the people who donate. This series of videos features Baptist employees – your team members and friends – sharing why they give and, perhaps, why you should consider doing the same.
Every year, we are excited and grateful to highlight our most important work. Throughout 2019, Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation made significant strides toward connecting and healing lives. The information below reflects how the generosity of our donors has driven our success this past year.
