The mission of the Jefferson Regional Foundation is to improve the health and well-being of the community served by Jefferson Hospital through grantmaking, education and outreach. The Foundation will serve the community with integrity and transparency.

Fulfilling the Mission

The Jefferson Regional Foundation, located south of Pittsburgh, PA, is dedicated to investing in the health and vitality of Jefferson Hospital communities. The Foundation is a support organization for Jefferson Hospital (not a private foundation). Our activities must broadly support the mission of the Hospital as it fulfills its vision to improve the health and well-being of the residents in its service area. As a result, we operate with several principles in mind, all of which are designed to promote our long-term impact on the community:

  • Advancing the Foundation’s priorities by investing grant resources with effective community organizations
  • Promoting and strengthening the community’s resources, assets and voice
  • Actively partnering with a variety of public, nonprofit and private organizations and leaders who share our vision
  • Wise investment of the Foundation’s funds for growth while preserving the principal
  • Gathering, sharing and leveraging important information about community resources, and existing and emerging needs
  • Building the capacity of community groups to promote quality of life and fulfill the mission of the foundation
  • Supporting the development and expansion of interventions and programs that demonstrate best or promising practices
  • Extending Jefferson Hospital’s reach into the community by strengthening the health status, opportunities and resources available to all residents
