Supporting the health of Central Indiana communities by ensuring access to high-quality medical services
Among all the treatments and breakthroughs our doctors have made in managing side effects and treating cancer, the support and bond that brings us together is what makes us human. Our assistance extends to those who not only need emotional support, but financial as well. This is all part of why Franciscan Health is at the forefront in the fight against cancer.
A trusted leader in faith-based, integrated healthcare, Franciscan Health brings together the latest technology, innovative procedures and highly skilled and compassionate employees to serve our patients. Your gift to any of our hospitals helps us continue “Christ's Ministry in our Franciscan Tradition" by serving everyone with respect and compassion.
Center of Hope
When a sexual assault victim arrives at the Center of Hope, they are arriving at a safe, secure, calm and compassionate place. Our specially trained nurses, certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE), help the victims relax and begin focusing on recovery. Your support for this center helps people heal emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Employee Assistance Fund
No one should have to make a choice between buying food for their table or dealing with an unexpected financial emergency. The Franciscan Health Employee Assistance Fund helps in times of unexpected need with interest-free loans. Please help support this safety net for our employees.
Franciscan Hospice House in Indianapolis
provides a home-like, compassionate environment for superior end-of-life care. With a growing need for inpatient and palliative care, your gift helps ensure no patient will be turned away regardless of financial means. Hospice House affirms and celebrates life and regards dying as a natural process recognizing every person has the right to die with dignity, peace and comfort.
The Grace Project assists families affected by the opiate crisis and has one purpose - deliberate acts of kindness. Your gift can provide formula and diapers, help with bills and enroll mom and dad in parenting classes. Extending grace motivates parents to stay employed, progress in their recovery and give their baby the best possible start in life.
The Medical Mission Fund helps bring healing and hope to those living in remote countries, such as Haiti, Guatemala, French Guiana and Kenya. Your support makes it possible for Franciscan Health employees who would like to join a medical mission trip led by a member of the medical staff, but lack the financial resources to participate.

Treating cancer can be a rocky ride of radiation, treatments, chemotherapy and surgeries. This cancer survivorship program in Central Indiana cares for the whole person - mind, body and spirit - during and after cancer treatments. Your gift allows us to help people on their wellness journey and throughout recovery - teaching them to never give up.
Neonatal Intensive Care
When babies are born prematurely or with special health needs, they require specialized care. Franciscan Health's Neonatal Intensive Care units provide the expert care and state-of-the-art technology needed to treat some of the most vulnerable newborn babies. Your gift to this unit is a gift to families in a time of crisis.
Our 4,500 Franciscan Health nurses serve on the front lines of patient care by providing safe, compassionate, quality care to patients and their families. But the field of nursing is ever changing and it is critical that our nurses receive continuing education. That is why we created the Nursing Excellence Fund. Your support will go towards continuing education and training as well as resources to combat burnout and compassion fatigue.
Nursing Scholarships & Funds for Clinical Education
In addition to the advancement of medicine, we believe in the advancement of people. We encourage Franciscan Health employees to pursue educational opportunities, so they may bring the most current and comprehensive care to their patients. Your gift enables the enrichment of their lives and the lives of their patients.

Patient Assistance Fund
When someone is going through an illness, things at home can suffer because of additional expenses for medication, lodging, travel, food or clothing. Gifts to this fund provide comfort and assurance to Franciscan Health patients and their families during their most vulnerable times.
Spiritual Care is at the core of our mission and values. Your gift supports training and professional development for Franciscan Health chaplains. This fund also helps our chaplains respond to patients who lack financial resources for necessities like clothing and transportation.
