Memorandum of Commitment

It is because of your integrity and stature as a leader in the community that you have been invited to serve on the Foundation Board of Trustees. As a Trustee of the Saint John’s Health Center Foundation, you agree to work with your fellow Trustees and Foundation staff to assure the successful execution of its mission of providing financial support for the advancement of Providence Saint John’s Health Center (PSJHC), the Saint John’s Cancer Institute (SJCI), and Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI) healthcare ministries.

Comprehensive health centers must increasingly rely upon their foundations to identify and garner financial support from individuals and private foundations to maintain and enhance capital facilities, provide medical care and cutting-edge technologies and equipment. With your help, PSJHC, the SJCI, and PNI will continue to provide superior and compassionate care for which these entities are nationally renowned.

Roles and Responsibilities
• Demonstrate a clear understanding and strong commitment to the missions and philanthropic goals of PSJHC, the SJCI, and PNI in order to fulfill your fiduciary responsibilities as a Trustee and to effectively serve as an ambassador on behalf of these entities.
• Attend a New Trustee Orientation as soon as possible (within six months of election as a Trustee).
• A key activity for our Trustees is to serve as a Goodwill Ambassador of our healthcare ministries; assist Foundation leadership in identifying and cultivating new donors; and assist in identifying community leaders who might be exceptional candidates to also serve on the Foundation Board of Trustees.
• Actively participate in at least one committee and/or assignment of the Board of Trustees.
• Make every effort to attend the Board of Trustees annual two-day Chautauqua Retreat each spring. It is very important for sponsors to strongly encourage their new trustees to do so.
• Attend the quarterly meetings when your schedule permits, and make a special effort to attend the Annual Trustee Dinner and Election (December).
• Make a minimum annual contribution of $10,000 or more to advance the mission of PSJHC, the SJCI, and PNI through your gift or gifts to the Annual Appeal, and/or projects in support of programs and services according to your interest and financial capability, and/or sponsorship of one or more special events.
• In recent years, Saint John’s has been rebuilding its campus and adding clinical service lines and capacity to better serve our community. In support of Saint John’s ongoing needs, all Trustees are requested to make a minimum capital gift or pledge of 6-7 figures over a period of 3-5 years or consider a request from the Foundation at a giving level proportionate to their financial capability.
• Trustees are encouraged to participate in Saint John’s Legacy Society which has been established to assist in creating planned gifts to the Saint John’s Endowed Fund and to the Saint John’s Nursing Endowment – Trustees are encouraged to let Foundation leadership know of their commitment, so their example might encourage other Trustees
to do so as well.

NOTE: The Saint John’s Health Center Foundation strives to engage a broad range of individuals in board service. In certain circumstances, a board member may not be able to fulfill the full complement of financial expectations. In its review both for trustee selection and renewal, the Board Affairs Committee may take into account the totality of both monetary and voluntary contributions a Trustee makes or will make to advance the mission of the Foundation, including direct participation in identifying and soliciting gifts or grants, working with community leaders and public officials to assist in the development of the Saint John’s Campus, utilizing his or her time and talents to further Health Center programmatic needs, and attendance at Chautauqua.

Saint John’s physicians play an important role in identifying and acknowledging grateful patients and facilitating the Foundation in building a relationship with those identified individuals. This type of advocacy on behalf of the Foundation advances the Foundation philanthropic goals.

These physicians come to appreciate that philanthropy is a powerful part of the healing process for patients and their families. The Foundation acknowledges these Physician Partners/Champions and as recognition may extend an invitation to a physician to become a trustee for their practice of providing outstanding medicine to their patients, and model behavior in support of philanthropy on our medical campus.

Responsibilities of a Trustee Sponsor
• Aid and assist in the orientation and assimilation of Trustees into the Foundation;
• Support and encourage a Trustee’s continued involvement, leadership and growth;
• Assist the Board Affairs Committee with a review of the Trustee’s tenure during his or her renewal year.
