A Foundation Built on Service
For more than five decades, Saint Luke’s Foundation has served Kansas City and surrounding communities. We partner with corporations, foundations, and individuals to fund innovative health care solutions through charitable gifts for clinical research, education, new technology, and the pursuit of excellence in patient care.
Saint Luke's is grateful for every gift received through the Foundation.
Support frontline workers battling the pandemic
COVID-19 continues to be a challenge for Saint Luke’s physicians, nurses, technicians, and support staff. Although new vaccines bring new hope, our facilities remain full and the number of patients we see continues to rise. Compassionate donors have helped Saint Luke’s purchase personal protective equipment and other lifesaving devices during the pandemic. But critical support is still needed on behalf of the staff who provide high-quality care to patients around the clock.

Support innovation at Saint Luke's
Innovation is the key to helping Saint Luke’s medical staff embrace new ways to solve medical problems. A few innovations the health system spearheaded include using the nation's first artificial kidney; pioneering clot-busting drugs to reverse strokes, and having one of the first cardiac teams in the country adapt treatments specifically for women. Adding to the roster, we now use 3D printers and modeling to improve outcomes for patients needing cardiology and neurology care.
Donor generosity enables our health system to investigate, identify, and provide the safest, innovative technologies and state-of-the-art treatments possible to patients now and for generations to come.
Ways to Give
Every investment is important and appreciated, whether large or small, one-time or recurring, or in tribute of a loved one or caregiver.
Through your estate plan, a bequest, an IRA contribution, or another giving vehicle, planned gifts can have a transformative and lasting impact at Saint Luke’s.
The spirit of Saint Luke’s shines through in our employees and, by giving, you reaffirm that Saint Luke’s is the best place to get and give care.
