Your Generous Gift Transforms Lives

At AdventHealth Avista, we work to restore health, nurture struggling families and support our communities. But we can’t do it alone. We are a not-for-profit hospital, which means that your contributions directly benefit the members of our community.

The AdventHealth Foundation supports our efforts to provide our neighbors with the care they need.

Your tax-deductible gifts to the Foundation enable us to further our mission of providing the best, faith-based health care possible. We use these donations to purchase leading-edge technologies, fund community health programs and enhance our facilities, all focusing on serving the patients who entrust us with their care.

Every gift counts, and every gift makes a difference.
