Skagit Regional Health Foundation
Established in 1988, the Skagit Regional Health Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation that acts as the official gift-receiving agency for Skagit Regional Health. The sole mission of the Foundation and its 25-member board of directors is to raise, manage and distribute funds to assure the continued availability of quality healthcare services and programs. The Skagit Regional Health Foundation has funds that support programs and healthcare services across the Skagit Regional Health system.
The Skagit Regional Health Foundation is celebrating 35 years of partnerships, generosity and gratitude. The Foundation works with Skagit Regional Health to improve upon the service, quality and efficiency provided in the many healthcare facilities across Skagit, Island and north Snohomish counties. The Skagit Regional Health Foundation has supported a wide variety of programs and capital projects since it's inception in 1988 and has exciting plans to continue raising the bar for state-of-the-art healthcare in our communities.
The Skagit Regional Health Foundation is taking a new project to heart! Patients served at the Heart and Vascular Institute will be the beneficiaries of the Foundation’s next fundraising campaign. At the Foundation’s spring 2022 summit, board trustees voted to raise $3 million to update the technology and equipment in two of the catheterization labs located on the Skagit Valley Hospital campus in Mount Vernon.
Skagit Regional Health’s Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology programs, in partnership with the interventional radiology program, serve as a regional hub for heart care, treating more than 3,000 patients from 15 different zip codes each year.
2023 marks the Foundation’s 35th year of philanthropic stewardship. Thanks to our donors, the Skagit Regional Health Foundation granted nearly $450,000 in 2022 to support programs and services at Skagit Regional Health last. Your continued support is needed and appreciated to assure we maintain the purpose of the Foundation - to provide quality healthcare for our Skagit Regional Health communities. On behalf of the Skagit Regional Health Foundation Board of Trustees and staff, THANK YOU for partnering with us to make a difference for patient care. Why wait? Support the Skagit Regional Health Foundation today!

Three regional high school volleyball teams played hard and gave generously to support the Foundation’s Breast Institute Fund during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Teams from Mount Vernon, La Conner and Stanwood raised more than $4,000 during their “Digs Pink” game nights last October. The Foundation appreciates these young donors and their passion to provide support for our breast cancer patients.

As part of the "Subaru Loves to Care" initiative, Subaru and retailers partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to gift blankets, activity sets and encouraging messages of hope to support patients facing cancer. Dwayne Lane's Skagit Subaru presented these gifts to the Skagit Regional Health's Cancer Care Center to provide warmth, love and relief to these patients in our community.
