Putting your gifts to work for Renville County
Better rural health care starts from the ground up. At Olivia Hospital & Clinic Foundation, we’re using your gifts to make our communities healthier wherever we can – whether that’s inside a doctor’s office or at your local farmer’s market.
We’re proud to partner with hometown community and service organizations, public health experts, friends and neighbors, and donors just like you. No matter which fund or initiative catches your eye, you’re working side by side with us to help residents of our communities improve their health and well-being.
Our funding priorities at Olivia Hospital & Clinic Foundation
Gifts to our area of greatest need are unrestricted, meaning they go where they’re needed most. We use these gifts to respond quickly and flexibly when important or unforeseen needs arise. That helps keep our patients and communities healthier during critical times.
Recent initiatives supported through unrestricted gifts include healing integrative therapies, medical and employee needs at Olivia Hospital & Clinic, and much more.
People diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, like late-stage cancer, often have different treatment priorities. Hospice care affirms their care choices, focusing on helping patients and their families find comfort, dignity and a higher quality of life.
Gifts to the hospice program help patients with costs that aren’t otherwise covered, including medication, transportation and soothing therapies.
Donations also support spiritual care, social services, community education, grief counseling and much more.
The Good Samaritan Fund helps patients at Olivia Hospital & Clinic with short-term needs that would otherwise prevent them from getting necessary care. With their needs met, patients can instead focus on healing and feeling better.
Through the Good Samaritan Fund, patients have received temporary home medical equipment, transportation to and from appointments, nutrition assistance, foot orthotics, and more.
The Healthy Community Fund works to create and develop rural public health initiatives. Programs supported by this fund operate directly in local towns, community centers, churches, homes and other places.
Through the Healthy Community Fund, we’re building a backbone of good health across our communities. These programs meet our neighbors where they are, helping expand access to food, information and resources that improve health and well-being.
A worthwhile investment for our community.
The Olivia Hospital & Clinic Foundation scholarship fund provides annual awards to graduating high school seniors, students of employees and current employees looking to pursue a career in human healthcare. These scholarships invest in students with bright futures who want to use their talents to care for others. Through our scholarships, we’re helping to train the next generation of rural health care leaders. To be eligible for a scholarship, students and employees must live in or attend school in Renville County, employee, or employee’s child of Olivia Hospital & Clinic, and be interested in pursuing a degree in human health care after graduation.
Applications are no longer being accepted.
