Natividad Foundation


Natividad Foundation brings people together to strengthen Natividad, Monterey County's public safety net hospital and Trauma Center 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 is Monterey County’s trauma center and public safety net hospital. Natividad Medical Foundation creates a healthier community by strengthening Natividad, helping health care providers meet the needs of all patients, including the most vulnerable members of our community. Natividad’s trauma center provides life-saving services, as do their 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 train- ing program, Natividad is distinguished as the only teaching hospital on the Central Coast.

The Foundation helped me while my daughter was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for five months. I deeply appreciate the financial and emotional support they provided me. Thank you for everyone at the Foundation for fighting alongside me and my daughter.

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 $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
