Our Purpose

The OSF Healthcare Foundation is here for one reason: to support the Mission of the Sisters' of the Third Order of St. Francis, "In the spirit of Christ and the example of Francis of Assisi, the Mission of OSF HealthCare is to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life."

Faith in our Mission inspires what we do at OSF. For us, helping others is truly a calling. This calling leads our commitment to finding innovative solutions and providing excellence in patient care.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the vision of our Mission Partners and the unwavering support of the Sisters, the Ministry of OSF HealthCare continues to make major strides in advancing better outcomes for every patient, every time.

Every donation makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. It is our pledge to steward each gift with accountability and care and diligently work to share with our donors the impact of their generosity. We invite you to join us as we work to provide state-of-the-art medical equipment and patient care facilities, train the health care workforce of the future, nurture groundbreaking research, and care for all those we serve with respect and dignity.


All gifts to support your local medical center or hospital, stay local.

The OSF Healthcare Foundation is the "parent" Foundation for the Ministry of OSF HealthCare. Our Foundation provides the 501(c)3 status to allow gifts to this Ministry to be tax deductible. The Ministry of OSF HealthCare includes eleven acute care facilities, including Children's Hospital of Illinois, one long-term care facility and two colleges of nursing located in Peoria and Rockford, Illinois. Each local Foundation office serves their community with the full resources of the OSF Healthcare Foundation behind them.
