St. Joseph Community Partnership Fund Leadership

 In 1986, St. Joseph Health (SJH) worked to further its commitment to the poor by creating a plan to transcend traditional efforts of providing care for those in need.The St. Joseph Community Partnership Fund was created as a result of that plan, designed to work in partnership with each region to improve the health of low-income individuals residing in local communities. The Fund is an independent, 501(c)(3) private foundation that exists to support SJH, and works under the governance of a board that is comprised of Providence executives and community experts/ leaders. 

In addition to providing grants and capacity building investments to community partners, the Fund helps guide and approve the Care for the Poor allocations for each St. Joseph Health ministry, each year.
