About Us

Our Community. Our Future.

Since its founding in 1994, Augusta Health has existed to be the community's first choice for care. Rooted in a tradition of personalized care with small-town hospitality, great pride is taken in Augusta's rating as one of the top-50 hospitals in America by Healthgrades.

The Augusta Health Foundation began its outreach in 2013 as the charitable arm of the health system. The Foundation secures philanthropic support to strengthen the health system and meet this community's needs. New programs and services have been funded and continue to grow through generous gifts from the Augusta Health Foundation.

The 100% Promise

One hundred percent—that's exactly how much of your generous gift will go directly to the programs and initiatives that you support through the Augusta Health Foundation. Thanks to our partnership with Augusta Health and their commitment to fund the Foundation's operations, your gift can now have maximum and lasting impact.


The Augusta Health Foundation team is committed to providing funding for services and programs that meet the needs to this community. The Foundation’s Board of Directors live and work in the valley and together they advance the vision and mission of the organization.
