Natividad Foundation


Natividad Foundation brings people together to strengthen Natividad and create a healthier community. Together with our partners, we help Natividad provide high-quality health care and trauma services for everyone in Monterey County, including the vulnerable.

The Big Idea

Natividad Medical Foundation creates a healthier community by supporting innovative programs and high-quality care at Natividad. Natividad’s trauma center, in its fifth year of operation, provides life-saving services to more than 1,500 critically injured patients each year. Natividad provides services not available anywhere else in the area, including a medical-forensic clinic for victims of child abuse and neglect, and the only California Children’s Services-accredited Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, giving the tiniest and most fragile babies the best start in life. Through its UCSF-affiliated family medicine residency training program, Natividad is also the only teaching hospital on the Central Coast. Medical equipment purchased by the foundation and support for Natividad’s programs make these local, vital and exceptional services available to all. 

Your program helped me believe in hope again to live for my daughters.

We’re In This Together.

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful.

Look for the 2020 Monterey County Gives! RFP (for applying nonprofits) in the Monterey County Weekly this June/July. Monterey County Gives! 2020 campaign kicks off in early November.

Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.
