About Us

The Benedictine Health Foundation, Inc., located in Kingston, New York, has supported health care services in Ulster County and the surrounding area founded on compassionate and spiritual care since 1977.

Our board of directors and staff strive every day to live up to the spirit of our donors’ generosity. Working in partnership with health care providers and educators, we continually develop innovative, grass roots programs to improve the health and well-being of individuals who are vulnerable and under-served. Our programs are offered in hospital, community, and school-based settings.

When you volunteer your time and offer your financial support to the Benedictine Health Foundation, you become part of a community of donors that makes a difference and gives back to those at risk. You will help us to build programs that inspire hope and empower people to heal when faced with a diagnosis of cancer or living with behavioral health and substance abuse challenges.

Our key pillars of service include: cancer care, primarily through the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund, behavioral health and substance abuse services, and spiritual care to support patients and their families during a time of need.

The Benedictine Health Foundation receives generous support from our community through donations and grants, and sponsorship of our special events. Our Foundation is committed to ensure that every dollar we receive is spent in accordance with the donor’s wishes and effectively addresses the health care needs of our community.

We are truly grateful for the continued generosity of our donors recognized in our “Community of Donors” report. If you would like information on our Foundation’s initiatives, donor opportunities or how to become involved, please contact us.
