Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation


Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation helps the Salinas Valley community create a great hospital and health system. Our donors do more than give money. They shape the many ways Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System makes the healthiest impact on the lives of everyone in Salinas Valley. We empower the community to advance state-of-the-art healthcare by supporting our hospital staff and doctors with what’s truly needed to care for people and create a healthier future for all. The community’s philanthropic support for the past 40 years has enabled this single hospital to grow into an integrated network of healthcare programs, services, and facilities to deliver the highest level of medical care to everyone we serve.

The Big Idea

The Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation supports the advancement of the Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, as it provides top-notch care to patients throughout the region. This nonprofit’s Big Idea supports its Patient Assistance Fund, providing financial assistance for patient needs after being discharged. Items and services like walkers, prosthetics and home care are covered by this fund because they are vital to making sure the conditions in which the patient recovers and lives will encourage long-term health.

Given the very difficult economic situation this last year for so many in our community, SVMH has treated more vulnerable patients than ever before. This vital program will help us to meet the needs for basic economic support and services, providing assistance for the patients who need it most.

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.
