giving good help for a lifetime

Dear Friends,

The year 2014 provided many highlights for the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation. In our first digital annual report, we’d like to share these accomplishments with you because of the tremendous impact your philanthropic support had on our Bon Secours facilities, patients, employees and staff.

At the Foundation, the ministry of the Sisters of Bon Secours stands front of mind as we carry out their mission, which began nearly 200 years ago. The Bon Secours values of respect, compassion, justice, integrity, quality, innovation, stewardship and growth guide our decisions every day as you entrust us with your gifts to make extraordinary differences in the lives of others.

In 2014, your generosity bridged the health care gap by purchasing a new Care-A-Van that visited communities and provided more than 20,000 patient visits. You educated more than 4,000 community members with healthy eating experiences through Class-A-Roll, Central Virginia’s first mobile kitchen. You inspired future nurses at the Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing by providing $300,000 in scholarship funds and supporting a move to a refurbished facility in Westhampton. You sparked the curiosity of young students interested in a health care career through the Great Influences For Tomorrow Program. Your gifts gave children hope with innovative treatment at Richmond Hope Therapy Center and the chance to just be a kid through medical, emotional and spiritual guidance at Noah’s Children. You sent expert teams of our doctors and nurses to Ghana and Haiti to perform basic health care and sophisticated surgeries for the global community. Your gifts purchased necessary equipment, including fetal monitors and robotic room cleaners, for our hospitals. Your support assisted patients as they battled cancer, brain injuries and heart problems. Your generosity promoted nursing excellence and professional development for nurses and physicians as they pursued advanced certifications and training and attended national conferences.

The Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House became a reality when it opened in May 2014. Since then, the house has created a home away from home for more than 300 families caring for loved ones at St. Mary’s. Soon to follow will be the Community Hospice House, which broke ground in 2014 and will indeed be groundbreaking as the first hospice facility in Central Virginia open to all in the area. 

We are honored by your commitment to these and many other examples of the good work being done. We thank you for making philanthropy a priority in your lives and for establishing a rich tradition of giving that benefits the entire community. We are grateful that you have chosen Bon Secours as your partner in giving. We look forward to more collaboration in the future.

Sincerely,


Cynthia C. Reynolds
