Our Promise

Due to an operating grant from Sequoia Hospital, the Sequoia Hospital Foundation is able to assure our donors that 100% of their donation will be used to support the services and projects they specify.

The Sequoia Hospital Foundation adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professionals' “Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice.” Information on the code, including the Donor Bill of Rights, is available at www.afpnet.org/ethics.

Examples of our commitment to ethical practices include:

We honor each donor’s intent by using restricted gifts only for their designated purpose.

We protect donors’ information and do not provide or sell mailing lists to other organizations.

The Sequoia Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit corporation as provided under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Section 501(c)(3) recognizes the Sequoia Hospital Foundation as a charitable organization exempt from federal income tax, while section 509(a)(3) recognizes that as a “supporting organization” it is our mission to support Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital, itself a public charity.

In accordance with our 509(a)(3) “supporting organization” status, specific giving methods such as IRA rollovers must be directed by the donor to Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital instead of the Sequoia Hospital Foundation.  Similarly, some private and community foundations limit their giving to only certain types of nonprofit organizations. In these cases, sometimes gifts, including those from donor advised funds, must be directed to Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital as well. As with all giving, the Sequoia Hospital Foundation will work with donors to facilitate their gifts and to steward all gifts appropriately.

Contributions are tax deductible in accordance with state and federal regulations.
