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:
