Giving to the Foundation


Give Today By Making A Donation

The Foundation is truly grateful for every donor gift it receives. Every dollar makes a meaningful impact for Skagit Regional Health patients. Since 1988, the Foundation has raised more than $26 million for patient care.

All gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible and can be made in memory or honor of a loved one. Unrestricted gifts give us the most flexibility to meet the needs of our patients, but donors may direct their donation to a specific care area. 

You can donate online or you can download our donation form in PDF format and mail it to us with cash, a check or credit card number. You can also give us a call at 360-428-2140.
