One act of generosity can fund an abundance of quality, compassionate medical care that positively influences the health and wellbeing of countless patients and community members. Funds raised through donor support have and continue to be vital to improving the health status of the community and the ongoing needs of Memorial Hospital.

Why Giving Matters

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a tangible difference at the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Foundation. Gifts from donors are funding programs and services that improve care for patients in our community.

No two donors are alike. They come in different ages, from different parts of Kern County and from a variety of economic backgrounds. Some are patients, some have had a family member or friend who received exceptional care at Memorial Hospital and some are community members contributing to ensure exceptional care is available is close to home.
