Why Support Methodist Hospital Foundation

You want your dollars to make a difference. That’s why we dedicate 100 percent of your giving to programs and projects that assist our Methodist patients and strengthen health care in our communities – not one cent pays for administrative costs

Our donors’ reach extends to all aspects of the Methodist mission: the way we care, educate and innovate.


36 percent of metro area adults report some type of difficulty or delay in obtaining health care services in the past year. Our donors are helping to improve access to care and screenings, and relieve financial burdens through Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography, Methodist Community Health Clinic and our charitable care program.


With the support of Foundation donors, we’re helping to train current and future health care providers. We know the need is great: A registered nurse shortage of 1,572 full-time employees is projected in Nebraska by 2025.


We are continually looking for – and funding – new ways to support current and future employees, the health system and those we serve.
