Funding Opportunities

Giving to the Sierra Nevada Memorial Foundation is easy. Donors can select from a number of different programs to support and different ways to give allowing you to focus on what is most important – making a difference with your charitable gift.

Our Areas of Greatest Need

The SNMH Foundation Board of Directors utilize these resources to promptly respond to the current year’s most pressing financial needs. In the past, "Area of Greatest Need" gifts have supported Lifeline, the Wellness Center, the Women and Infant Care Unit as well as funding to support the recruitment and retention of physicians. Funding has also been directed toward the purchase of special equipment and continuing education for nurses and Hospital clinical staff.

Remember Me: The Face Behind Dementia Campaign

This campaign raises funds for our Alzheimer's Outreach Program, which is the primary caregiver resource, support and advocacy program. This program offers our community an Alzheimer’s helpline for caregivers, respite care and educational classes.

Cancer Center

SNMH's Community Cancer Center is a nationally accredited Cancer Center with a philosophy of treating the whole person and not just the disease.
