Humanity Grants Program: Fuel to Put Humanity to Work

Through the Humanity Grants Program, the St. Joseph’s Hospitals Foundation invests in projects and ideas generated by team members that will bring care and comfort to patients and their families.

We ask our team members:

“As you interact with patients each day, do you notice opportunities to enhance your patient’s hospital experience?”

“Do you wish to yourself, if only I could make that happen?”

“If you had the resources, what would you do to make a positive difference in the lives of your patients?”

Our team members working on the units and at the bedside know our patients best, so we take their ideas and turn them into reality to put St. Joseph’s Hospitals’ humanity to work for patients.

The Humanity Grants Program is funded by donations made to the St. Joseph’s Hospitals Foundation through the Team Member Giving Campaign and philanthropic gifts made by patients and community members.
