Our Current Campaigns

As a not-for-profit health care system, we rely on donors to help meet the needs of those we serve.

Current campaign contributions provide direct support for the poor and uninsured, the development of facilities, patient care innovations, clinical research, scholarships and continuing education opportunities. Learn more about our current fundraising campaigns and how to get involved below!

Rooted in Healing

We were very touched by the trees given in our daughter’s memory.

Rooted in Healing is an opportunity to memorialize or honor a loved one while improving hope and healing for those served by Ascension Saint Thomas.
Contributions to Rooted in Healing support the Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation’s Carrie Teaford Campus Beautification Fund  providing resources to improve the public spaces that help create a welcoming and healing environment for patients and families. This fund is a direct extension of Ascension Saint Thomas’ mission to provide holistic, reverent care by creating surroundings that give comfort, aesthetic beauty and a visual expression of the love and attention we seek to offer anyone in our care.

Campaign Goals:
Donors who contribute $1,000 or more to Rooted in Healing will receive a personalized plaque placed on a tree located on the Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital campus of their choice. Each plaque may be inscribed with 42 characters including space and punctuation. Contributions may be made to Rooted in Healing by clicking the button below.

Guardian Angel Awards

Is there someone who made a difference in your care at Ascension Saint Thomas? Honor your caregiver with a Guardian Angel Award.

Guardian Angel provides patients and their families the opportunity to honor an Ascension Saint Thomas Caregiver who made a difference during their visit to an Ascension Saint Thomas hospital or medical office by making charitable donation of $25 or more to the Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation. If you have been in one of our hospitals recently, you may have noticed some of the caregivers wearing Ascension Saint Thomas Guardian Angel lapel pins on their uniforms. These pins are given to Ascension Saint Thomas employees from those who matter most, patients like you.

Campaign Goals:
With a tax-deductible, charitable donation of $25 or more to an Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation, you can show your appreciation by recognizing a special caregiver as an Ascension Saint Thomas Guardian Angel. They will be awarded a personalized Guardian Angel Award certificate and a Guardian Angel lapel pin they will wear proudly for years to come. You may also include a personal note of appreciation that will be delivered along with the Guardian Angel Award.

Midtown Modernization Capital Campaign

Building on a legacy of more than 100 years, Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown is excited to shape the future of healthcare in our Nashville community. Enhancements to our Midtown campus will include $300 million in investment including a new, state-of-the-art surgery and critical care tower, modernization of the exterior of current buildings, a new entrance for the Hospital for Women, new Medical Office Building, new Spine Institute with specialized surgical suites, a new specialty hospital for inpatient rehabilitation, and expansions to our Cancer Center.

Associate Giving Campaign

Associate Giving Campaign is an extension of our mission offering employees a way to support charitable programs funded by the Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation which improve the lives of those we serve.
Through the generosity of Associates who consistently support the annual Associate Giving Campaign, the Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation continues to be a vital resource, helping to provide access to care for everyone in our community and supporting our patients and employees when they need us most.

Campaign Goals

Below are some of the ways support of the Campaign helped to meet the needs of the most vulnerable, improve access and quality of care, and truly change the lives of those served by our ministry last year:        

  • 101 Ascension Saint Thomas Associates received $95,000 in support through the Sister Juliana Employee Assistance Fund
  • Over 700 struggling patients were help with temporary lodging, prescriptions, medical equipment, and gas cards through patient assistance funds like the Melvin and Irene Lewis Fund
  • Ascension Saint Thomas Associates were awarded more than $195,000 in college scholarships and continuing education grants for professional conferences
  • Through the Community Health Outreach Fund, 218 eye exams and 165 pairs of glasses were given to needy patients

Ascension associates may contribute through easy payroll deduction, via credit card or by check payable to the Ascension Saint Thomas Foundation. Click the button below to give today.

Annual Giving and Giving Societies

Annual gifts of all sizes are the sustaining dollars of our foundation. These gifts represent financial support from grateful patients, friends, and community supporters who value our mission. These annual donations fall into two distinct categories: 1) unrestricted giving, which supports the most immediate hospital and patient priorities and 2) restricted giving, which can be directed to a special interest of the donor. For those donors who chose to give at the $1,000 level or greater, we have a variety of annual recognition societies in which we honor your generous support.

Tribute Gifts

Tribute gifts are an opportunity to support our mission while also paying tribute to someone you care about or wish to recognize. Perfect for honoring an exemplary caregiver or any loved one, these gifts express gratitude to the recipient. Of course, these gifts are also lovely tributes to make in the memory of someone who has passed away as a special remembrance.

Your generous support will help guide the future of healthcare in Middle Tennessee and ensure everyone has access to the highest quality of care from the most compassionate caregivers. 100% of every donation to our foundation goes directly to our fundraising programs.
