Welcome to the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation
The Forrest General Healthcare Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Forrest General Hospital. The establishment of the Foundation helps ensure the hospital's vision of C.A.R.E. becomes a reality for the 19 county region that this hospital serves.
The Forrest General Healthcare Foundation is here to Help Forrest General Hospital keep it's commitment to define the healthcare experience by providing world class care. Their mission is our mission also.
Our Commitment is:
To raise funds responsibly and respecfully for the enrichment of health care, and maintaining open, honest and personal communication with our donors and volunteers. We are thankful for the efforts of all of those in the community who have helped the Foundation over the years and look forward to your continued support.
"I choose to give to the Foundation because I believe in Forrest General, and the Foundation contributes to our community in ways that Forrest General may not otherwise be able to contribute."

Through our fundraising efforts, we can enhance the quality of health care in our community by influencing both the quality and the timing of projects.
The Foundation, in concert with Forrest General Hospital, identifies those funding opportunities/ priorities that have the greatest impact on improving patients' quality of care.
When funds are entrusted to the Foundation, we manage the investment and distribution of these funds and ensure full accountability back to the donor through the best stewardship practices.
