In keeping with the mission of the Sisters of Providence, who began providing compassionate care in Montana more than 145 years ago, our charitable Foundation supports Western Montana and touches the lives of people who need help the most, especially the poor and the vulnerable. The Providence Montana Health Foundation
helps fund the needs of the community that are above and beyond the budgets of Providence ministries, and we rely entirely on private support of generous donors and volunteers like you.

Put your dollars where they’re needed most! The General fund gives us flexibility to address specific funding priorities and take advantage of unexpected opportunities so we can best serve our patients and their families.
