Baptist Health is prepared to care for you today, tomorrow and into the future.

Baptist Health Foundation was established to provide financial support to advance the healing ministry of Baptist Health through purposeful and philanthropic partnerships.

In 2021, Baptist Health will celebrate 100 years of proudly serving Arkansas. From the humble beginnings of the first hospital, Baptist Health has grown to be Arkansas’ most comprehensive health system with 11 hospitals, a rehabilitation institute, heart institute and college dedicated to building a strong health care workforce. Although much has changed over the years, its purpose has remained the same – to create a healthier community through compassionate care and innovative services. Baptist Health is dedicated to wellness; driven by purpose.

Baptist Health Foundation strives to connect philanthropy to purpose and strengthen Baptist Health’s healing power to provide lifesaving care. We cannot achieve our mission alone; we need philanthropic partners to join us in advancing Baptist Health’s important work. From investing in our state’s health care workforce – which is more important than ever – to helping improve the health of every Arkansan, donations at any level can make a meaningful impact.


Invest in our future and current health care workforce through our college by helping to provide scholarships and continuing education.

Give to Compassionate Care to help lighten burdens for patients, families and caregivers who are experiencing unexpected tragedies and hardships.

Provide lifesaving care to babies in intensive care and women navigating breast cancer.

Partner with us to improve the health of the homeless, uninsured, underinsured and underserved through our life-changing Community Outreach programs.
