Saint Francis Foundation

Colleague Funds

As a colleague, you have the choice of where you would like to designate your donation.  You may select an area of care that means the most to you or one of two funds that will have an immediate impact on our co-workers - the Colleague Care fund or the Colleague Crisis fund. 

Colleague Care Fund

The Colleague Care Fund was recently established to support colleague care efforts such as comfort carts, the creation of tranquility rooms, Integrative Medicine services and other programs that promote safety, health and well-being.

Colleague Crisis Fund - this fund supports the following programs.  

Community Outreach Program

The program was established to provide assistance to colleagues who volunteer to serve on a Saint Francis sponsored or non-sponsored medical mission. If you would like your gift to be directed to Dr. Mayer's or Dr. Bourque's mission trips please contact the Foundation at (860) 714-4900.  For other information on the application process, please call (860) 714-4880.

Dr. Allan Mayer, along with a group of medical colleagues from Saint Francis Hospital, travel to South America and Africa to extend much needed Gynecologic medical treatments including surgery, medications, and equipment.  The good will and international outreach provided benefit the travelers as greatly as the local recipients.

Dr. Bourque, along with a dedicated group of colleagues from Saint Francis Hospital and other facilities, volunteers to support medical personnel, hospitals and clinics serving the poorest of the poor on Haiti.  In partnership with Medical Aid to Haiti, Inc., primary health care, surgical, and specialty services, are provided by local Haitian medical professionals 365 days a year, and US mission teams travel to work alongside Haitian colleagues for one week up to 4 times a year.

Emergency Assistance Fund 

This program was established to assist colleagues who need aid when they experience a financial emergency.  The program is managed by the Office of Mission Integration. For more information or questions, please call 860-714-4880. 

Please fax your application to 860-714-8826.
