Sierra View Foundation

The Sierra View (SV) Foundation was established in 1992 as a non-profit 501c(3) organization. The Foundation is a separate entity from Sierra View Medical Center and is guided by a 17-member voluntary board of local community leaders.

The Foundation's Mission

The mission of the SV Foundation is primarily to invest in the future by promoting community philanthropy, building lasting relationships, and promoting a positive image of Sierra View Medical Center. The Foundation approaches this mission in three primary ways: Raising funds and awareness for the hospital, encouraging donors to have a lasting legacy, and seeking grant opportunities to expand and strengthen healthcare services.
