Whether your gift is large or small, we appreciate your generosity and kindness. Thank you for being a partner in our mission!

Gifts from annual donors are directed to the area of greatest need at the medical center or hospice care. It is no exaggeration to say that your support will help save lives, and to make countless others better.

Your contributions provide resources for us to purchase new and better equipment, improve our facilities, and offer valuable training and education for our nurses and staff – things we otherwise would not be able to do without your vital support.

As a non-profit organization, we are relying on community philanthropy more than ever before as we strive for excellence in all that we do. Thank you for being a partner in our mission to provide quality, compassionate care to all who walk through our doors.

Are you looking for a meaningful way to honor a friend or loved one on a birthday, holiday or other special occasion? Perhaps you want to express your condolences for a loss, or to say thank you to an outstanding nurse or doctor whose compassionate care made a difference in your life.

Make a gift in honor or in memory of someone today.

We will let the individual being honored know of your kind and thoughtful gesture, acknowledging your gift without mention of the amount.

Honor and memorial gifts in any amount may be designated to benefit your choice of programs, services or community outreach programs within Providence Little Company of Mary.

Saying “thank you” for outstanding care and compassion

Guardian Angel logoOur Guardian Angels come in all shapes and sizes. They wear lab coats and hospital scrubs, volunteer smocks and nurse's uniforms. You'll find them in surgery suites and patient rooms, in rehabilitation, in the ER, behind a reception desk or in an office – any place where Providence staff offer the special things, both large and small, that make our patients and their loved ones feel more comfortable, empowered and secure.

There is a way to thank these special caregivers who demonstrate outstanding service and compassion to you, your family, or a loved one. When a donation is made to our medical centers or services in the name of a physician, nurse, or employee, that person is recognized as a Guardian Angel with a special pin.

Make a gift online to say “thank you” to your Guardian Angel.

When you give in honor of the Guardian Angel(s) in your life, it is not only a kind expression of gratitude, but also a vital investment that strengthens the care and healing we provide.
