Saint Francis Foundation

Colleague Fund

The colleague fund is made up of several programs and assistance funds. 

Colleague Children's Scholarship Program

Established in 2001, the Children Scholarship Program, is made possible through the unrestricted contributions made by fellow colleagues to the “Spirit of Giving” Campaign. Any child of a Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center and Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital colleague who is a graduating high school senior and planning to pursue higher educational opportunities may apply. To date over 175 scholarships of $1,000 have been awarded.

The deadline for 2018 applications is April 13, 2018.

Community Outreach Program  

The Community Outreach Program was established to provide assistance to staff who volunteer to serve on a Saint Francis sponsored or non-sponsored medical mission. The program is supported by the unrestricted gifts of fellow colleagues to the “Spirit of Giving” Campaign. Applications being updated, for information, please call (860) 714-4880.

Emergency Assistance Fund 

Through the generosity of colleagues who make an unrestricted gift to the “Spirit of Giving” Campaign, funds are set aside to endow the Emergency Assistance Fund. These funds exist to loan staff money in times of a financial emergency to aid in resolving the crisis. The Emergency Assistance Fund is managed by the Office of Mission Integration.
