The Marian Regional Medical Center Foundation was established in 1982 for the sole purpose of securing philanthropic support for the healing mission of the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity in their healthcare ministry at Marian Regional Medical Center.  

Our two annual events and community third party events provide much needed funding for programs and services at Marian.  All events benefiting the healing ministry at Marian is made possible due to the generous donors, volunteers, and community supporters.  Learn more about each of our events below:

Day of Hope

Cancer affects not only those with the disease but also an entire community.  This is why Marian Regional Medical Center, in partnership with the Santa Maria Times, is proud to present Day of Hope annually to benefit local cancer patients and families in need at Mission Hope Cancer Center.  For more information about this community-based fundraiser, click here.

Annual Dinner

The Marian Foundation hosts one of the Central Coast's premier fundraising events at the Annual Dinner every year.  For more information on this treasured event, click here.

Third-Party Events

The Marian Foundation is grateful to the remarkably generous Central Coast community.  Many in the community have chosen to create a fundraiser to benefit a department or program of choice in consultation with the Foundation.  If you are interested in hosting an event, click here.
