Ascension St. John relies on the generosity of its supporters to meet the needs of those we serve.
Hundreds of Tulsans donated funds in 1925 to complete the original St. John building, which opened the following year. Ever since, this community has supported St. John Health System, and St. John has worked to return the favor by providing the best care to our patients and their families.
The Ascension St. John Foundation provides financial support for the operation and continued growth of Ascension St. John. Each year, the Foundation receives many grants, contributions, donations and gifts supporting the work of Ascension St. John.
Gifts to the Foundation enable the health system to expand existing services and add important new programs. In recent years, Foundation funds have helped build and equip a new pediatric intensive care unit, open a kidney dialysis center in an underserved part of town, and expand our pre-admission testing lab.
Due to the volume of requests the Ascension St. John Foundation receives to support worthy causes, we are limited in the number of organizations and events we are able to support. Ascension St. John's focus lies in health-related programs, and we are not accepting unsolicited funding requests or proposals at this time.
Your financial support helps us make the broadest possible impact on health and life in the region and beyond--expanding an unparalleled patient experience to all.
