Stronger Together

Scripps Health Foundation 2020 Stewardship Report

Thanks to your swift and thoughtful philanthropy, you enabled our caregivers to provide a courageous response to COVID-19, while managing care for patients whose medical needs couldn’t wait during this time. You allowed us to act nimbly to reimagine care. From the pandemic to recent challenges, we were on the front lines caring for the community and you were there for us when we needed it.


In 2020, more than 4,000 new donors joined our philanthropic community to raise more than $70 million.


Here’s a look at some of the ways your gifts make an immediate impact and improve the lives of our patients now and for years to come.


We’re stronger together.

It has been inspiring to see how the community has responded, unlike any other year, with philanthropic support to help us care for our patients.” — John B. Engle, Scripps Corporate Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer
