Our Goals & Values

The RRH Foundation has adopted “GRATITUDE changes EVERYTHING” as the guiding principle for our philanthropic efforts. We truly believe Ridgecrest Regional Hospital offers so many reasons for us to be grateful, and grateful giving can improve the health of our community.

The RRH Foundation is asking you to follow our lead and consider, what are you grateful for? When you find your reason, use that gratitude to inspire giving back to our hospital, our healthcare system, and our community.

We believe that every gift is special, regardless of the amount. 100% of your contribution will be used for the expansion of hospital services, including new equipment, new facilities and new services for our community.

Ways to Make a Gift
  • Tribute Gift: Making a tribute gift is an especially meaningful way to honor, celebrate, commemorate or remember a special friend, loved one, event or occasion. Your gift remembers the past by creating a better future for healthcare. Memorial gifts are a way to remember a loved one in a unique way. Memorials may be made in lieu of flowers. Tribute gifts may also be given "in honor of" a special thank you to family members, doctors, caregivers, friends or co-workers. This is also an ideal way to recognize a Ridgecrest Regional Hospital employee or doctor who has made a difference in the life of a patient. Each honorary or memorial gift is acknowledged with a card to that person or to the family of that person in whose name the gift was made. Notification does not include the amount of the gift. Donations that provide opportunities to place names on the Tree of Life and Children's Kingdom display in the hospital continue to be available as space remains.
  • Annual Fund Giving: The annual fund is an opportunity to donate to the Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Foundation to provide sustained, ongoing support for Ridgecrest Regional Hospital. Establishing an affordable, regular donation schedule can enable the Foundation and Ridgecrest Regional Hospital to fulfill their missions.
  • Senior Wellness Program: Ridgecrest Regional Hospital offers several programs to seniors, free of charge to help them maintain and improve their physical health, mental health and emotional health. We have been able to impact 100’s of seniors in the community through our senior exercise program, Rock Steady Boxing program for those with Parkinson’s disease and Journey to Happiness Program. Your funds would go to ensure these programs continue to make a difference in the lives of our seniors.

  • Butterfly Boutique: The Butterfly Boutique is a high-end retail store ran completely by our amazing volunteers. Proceeds from the Butterfly Boutique go toward Oncology Care Coordination and the foundation. Donating and shopping at the Butterfly Boutique helps our hospital continue its mission of care.

  • Current Capital Campaign: Call for current capital campaign
  • Fred Hawkins EMT Memorial Scholarship: Established in honor of all the work Fred Hawkins did in support of EMT programs across our city, county, state and beyond. One of the challenges facing EMT today is recruitment and retention of EMT practitioners. In an effort to address this challenge, the Foundation is offering scholarship opportunities to individuals interested in pursuing a career in EMT.
