Where the Money Goes

The Holy Rosary Healthcare Foundation partners with friends who believe in and support the mission and vision of enhancing healthcare services, projects and solutions in eastern Montana. 

When a donor expresses interest in making a difference for a health-related cause at Holy Rosary or in our region, we meet with that client to determine their wishes.  Typically, they have one or multiple areas, projects or departments for which they would like to make a meaningful difference.

100% of all gifts received are used locally to support Foundation projects.   The Foundation's overhead and operating expenses are paid by Holy Rosary Healthcare, thus allowing all gifts to truly be used to benefit projects as the donor intended.

When a donor contributes to the Foundation, those dollars are earmarked based on the donor's wishes and placed in a fund classification.  A brief description of each fund is defined here.
