FOUNDATION MISSION


Provide resources to enhance and support quality health care for Bartlett Regional Hospital.

Through the Foundation's support of Bartlett Regional Hospital, we seek to provide philanthropic support for our community now and in the future.

Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation was formed in Juneau, Alaska in 1992, and incorporated in 1994 under IRS code 501 (c) (3). Bartlett Regional Hospital serves a region consisting of remote island communities, totaling close to 80,000 in population with nearly one-million visitors annually. Because our hospital is city-owned it has limited funding options. Donations to Bartlett Foundation help make up for gaps in healthcare funding available from public sources. Our goal is to close the funding gap for needed medical technology and resources to keep Southeast Alaska on the cutting edge of patient care. All of the money raised by Bartlett Foundation stays right here in our community, providing resources to enhance and support quality, patient-centered care at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

Projects funded by Bartlett Foundation would not otherwise be funded through the hospital's public funding process. In 2018 the Foundation's area of focus is Prevention and Preparedness. We were able to provide funding for these three prevention and preparedness projects in 2018: 
•Three-day emergency food and water supply and storage container;
•Continuation of Bartlett Sleep Awareness Family Education (B-Safe) program, focusing on infant safe sleep education and providing parents with a safe infant sleep surface; and,
•Sponsorship of Health Matters Diabetes Education Program
This year in 2019, we want to continue to help Bartlett Regional Hospital and our community with this focus. This is why we have created our Prevention & Preparedness Fund - this will provide funding for projects with prevention and preparedness aspects.

Each year the Foundation also allocates scholarships for health science studies through the Grace and Philip Edelman Endowment. These health sciences scholarships are designed to increase access to healthcare in our community by giving financial assistance to local students, encouraging their return to practice their healthcare careers in our communities.
