our care funds

The doctor who delivered your baby. The nurse who held your mom’s hand when she was afraid. The hospice caregiver who visited your grandfather.

When we experience care during a time of need, we often want to give back — or pay it forward. Understanding the importance of this personal connection, the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation created  CARE Funds so you can engage with us in an area that touches your heart or recognize someone who touched your life.

Our CARE Funds are built around one of our service specialties and each meets the needs of the community in unique and meaningful ways:
