About Methodist Hospital Foundation

Mission:"The mission of Methodist Hospital Foundation is to improve the quality of life by supporting excellence in health care and health care education provided by Methodist Health System."

Methodist Hospital Foundation accepts, protects and distributes charitable contributions. In fact, one hundred percent of every contribution benefits the program or project selected by the donor. Methodist Hospital Foundation is proud to support cancer and cardiac care, free mental health counseling and nursing scholarships, charity care for those in need, and capital improvements to enhance health care facilities. In 2008, Methodist Hospital Foundation helped over 27,000 people in Omaha and the surrounding area by distributing $6 million in support of programs and projects focused on cancer care, charitable care, community service and education.

Giving Opportunities:


Donations keep Methodist Hospital Foundation’s vision and mission moving forward! One hundred percent of every gift directly benefits the program or project the donor chooses. The greatest need is funding to purchase equipment and technology that will serve patients at Methodist Women’s Hospital, and for improvements at our 84th Street campus.

Volunteer Opportunities:


Volunteers are the heart and soul of Methodist Hospital, and currently there are several volunteer opportunities available, from the Surgery Department and Welcome Center to the Methodist Hospital Gift Shop. Additional volunteer-driven efforts include serving coffee and delivering cards, gifts and flowers to patients. When the Methodist Women’s Hospital opens next year, even more volunteers will be needed! To learn how you can become a volunteer, contact the Methodist Hospital Volunteers in Partnership by calling (402) 354-4522 or e-mail

One of the easiest ways for you to help is by referring your friends and family to the services of Methodist Hospital and its affiliates. If you’re not already a patient, learn more about us at
