Mission Hospital Foundation has been connecting donors with areas of opportunity for nearly 50 years.
Transforming our community — together
Both of our hospitals in Laguna Beach and Mission Viejo were established when local residents and business leaders recognized the need to have local medical centers to serve their communities. They provided the land and the funds to establish these facilities, which have since provided life-saving service to millions.
Mission Hospital Foundation continues to work with members of our community to advance the work of our hospitals and provide the best medical care possible, close to work and home.
Philanthropy begins with passion.
The Foundation helps donors like you discover what inspires you most. Then, we pair your interests with an area of opportunity at Mission Hospital — so that all who live, work or visit in south Orange county can be blessed with exceptional care.
"Those of us who live and work in south Orange County know that when we experience serious illness and medical emergencies, Mission Hospital is always ready. It does not matter the day of the year or the hour of night. As our community grows and advances in medical technology take place, our Foundation board supports the hospital so the hospital can continue to be there for us."
