Spirit of Charity Foundation


Founded in 1993, the Foundation has traditionally supported the medical needs of our most vulnerable populations in our region. The Foundation has raised the level of patient care at Charity and University Hospitals, the Interim LSU Hospital and now, at University Medical Center New Orleans. You help continue our nearly 300-year legacy of caring for those marginalized by societal inequities… and standing tall during adversity.

One of our newest programs benefiting our community is the Overdose Rescue Pack Program.

As an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are not a part of any other major healthcare nonprofit. We operate and raise all funds to continue our mission to support and facilitate patient-centered care, actively promote health and wellness and to advance medical research and education for the benefit of University Medical Center, its patients, and friends. Our Tax ID# is 72-1251751.
