A Nonprofit Corporation
The Shoshone Medical Center Foundation was organized in 1990 according to Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code as a non-profit corporation. Its purpose is to benefit Shoshone Medical Center and the community it serves by coordinating all fund development programs, receiving estate bequests, donation, gifts, and administering and disbursing funds received.
The Shoshone Medical Center Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization committed to obtaining funding to help meet the healthcare needs of the Silver Valley by providing equipment, services, and education to Shoshone Medical Center and the community it serves.
The purpose of the Foundation is two-fold; first, it encourages and supports area students to pursue careers in health-related fields by offering scholarships to Silver Valley high school graduates as well as to current SMC employees. Second, it provides a way for you to become involved in supporting your local hospital and community through bequests, memorials, and donations. All gifts are tax-deductible due to the 501(c)3 status. Donations of any amount are always welcome and may be forwarded to:
Attn: Sarah Murphy

The Foundation Board meets the third Wednesday of every month (excluding July and December) at 12:15 in Classroom One at SMC. This is an open meeting and guests are always welcome to attend. We are always looking for new volunteers to help with any one of our many fundraising and community engaging events! Contact Sarah Murphy to donate time 509.768.1670
Scholarships are offered to Silver Valley students who are continuing their education in a health related field. The Joan Head Scholarship fund was begun in 2017 to benefit SMC employees who are pursuing further education in health care.
