The Foundation is a non-profit fundraising organization created by a caring community to help support its local hospital. In 1982, a concerned and dedicated Calaveras County community recognized the need and started organizing the first Hospital Foundation. In 1984, it became a reality and within two years, the Foundation raised $92,000 to purchase and install the first mammography equipment in Calaveras County. Since then, the Foundation has been instrumental in acquiring various equipment, updating patient care rooms, and donating $1 million dollars to the MTSJH Building Fund.

A gift is often made because of a pure and simple desire to do good, to help others. It may come from a personal reaction to the care and concern given by the hospital staff or in appreciation of a physician or nurse. The gift can come from community pride or simply the desire to perpetuate quality medical care.
MTSJH faces daunting challenges to maintain its goals of quality patient care as medical costs continue to rise and sources of funding are steadily declining. In order to meet its commitment to the community's healthcare needs, your generosity ensures that the hospital will continue to provide the finest quality health care available.
