About Us 

The Office of Philanthropy supports and manages Dignity Health’s two Inland Empire philanthropic foundations – Community Hospital of San Bernardino (CHSB) Foundation and St. Bernardine Medical Center (SBMC) Foundation. The Foundations raise funds for the advancement of our two hospitals, whose collective mission is to deliver compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services; serve and advocate for our sisters and brothers who are poor and disenfranchised; and partner with others in the community to improve the quality of life.

The generosity of the communities we serve, and the dedication of our volunteers, helps insure this excellence in patient care, and community outreach. Our Foundation staff is available to work with you to assure that you are able to focus on what is truly important – making a difference with your charitable gift.Those who wish to make a philanthropic gift can designate their contribution to their hospital of choice (CHSB Foundation or SBMC Foundation). In addition, they can further restrict their gifts to a particular program or project at the respective hospital.
