Come Rock With Us!
The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation, along with a dedicated committee, is organizing its first ever Rockathon event for the Valley Manor long term care home. The premise is simple: participants will raise pledges from family and friends, and commit to rocking in a rocking chair for a day.
Proceeds from the Rockathon will help support the needs of local healthcare, including a much-needed update to the lifts at the Valley Manor long term care home, which help with the safe transfer of residents.

In Memoriam and Planned Giving
Everyone wants to be remembered in some capacity after they pass. Did you know that you can create a lasting legacy for yourself or a loved one while ensuring the future of local healthcare? The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation raises funds for three key healthcare partners, including the Valley Manor long term care home, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and Madawaska Valley Hospice.
While you can choose to donate to any one of our healthcare partners, you will make the greatest impact by directing funds generally to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. This will give the Foundation the flexibility it needs to ensure funds are directed where they are needed, and when they are needed, the most.
By designating In Memoriam donations to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation, purchasing an element on the In Memory Mural, or assigning a gift to the Foundation in your will, you are providing future generations access to local healthcare.

As Covid-19 continues to affect every aspect of our lives, we’d like to express our deepest gratitude to all who are keeping us safe.
Thank you to all of our local healthcare workers for your dedication during this difficult time.

It provides our community with so much comfort knowing that you are all there for us.
