St. Vincent’s Foundation
St. Vincent’s Foundation raises funds to support new programs, education, equipment, technology and capital expansion across St. Vincent’s Health System. We also address the special needs of patients and family members that trust their health care to St. Vincent’s.
As a donor, you have the opportunity to express appreciation for the care you have received and to extend care to those less fortunate. Through the generosity of donors to St. Vincent’s Foundation, the health system is able to offer comfort where it is needed most.

Pumping in Support
Your gifts to St. Vincent’s Foundation recently provided direct support for cardiac care across our health ministries. At St. Vincent’s Birmingham, the Foundation awarded more than $130,000 to support the opening of eight new patient prep/recovery bays for the Cardiac Cath Lab and $30,000 for education and equipment for the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program.
St. Vincent’s Blount received furnishings and equipment for the new St. Vincent’s Cardiology-Blount Clinic, including four exam tables, physician stools, blood pressure cuffs, patient seating and waiting area seating. Additionally, the Foundation continued its annual support of Heart Day at the St. Vincent’s East, Blount and St. Clair campuses where patients received vital heart screenings at discounted rates.
Thanks to your support of St. Vincent’s Health System, our ministry as a whole is gaining strides in overall heart health for our communities.
Harvey Martin Memorial Classic
Since 2010, young Patrick Martin has hosted the Harvey G. Martin Classic golf tournament in memory of his late grandfather. After Harvey’s battle with cancer, Patrick wanted to honor him using the game that they both loved.
In two years, the golf tournament, played by teams of Patrick’s peers, has generated almost $12,000 for the Bruno Cancer Center at St. Vincent’s Birmingham. And Patrick has no intention of stopping. He hopes to make this year’s tournament bigger and better.
Like Patrick Martin, you can help out St. Vincent’s Health System by planning a charity event and donating the proceeds to an area of your choice. Visit our events page for event guidelines and applications. As always, we appreciate your support!
Do Something Good for Yourself and St. Vincent’s
Dr. Walter McCoy spent his career at St. Vincent’s Birmingham, serving patients in internal medicine. Since his retirement, Dr. Walter and his wife D’Anne have taken out several charitable gift annuities to benefit St. Vincent's. "It's so important to give something back," Dr. McCoy says. "St. Vincent's patients get the best care there is, the personal touch and superior medical care.”
Through their gifts, the McCoys want this to continue for years to come. “Gift annuities are one way we can help contribute, in retirement and even beyond our lifetimes,” says Dr. McCoy. “Our accountant asked what we really wanted to do, make a gift to St. Vincent's or do something for ourselves. We told him we wanted to do both."
Find out how to join the McCoys in making a charitable gift annuity to St. Vincent’s. Visit our Planned Giving page or contact Craig Bardell, Director of Planned and Major Gifts, at 205.930.2370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
