Ways to Donate

Make a Financial Contribution

Donate Today

A donation to the FMC Foundation directly supports patient care at Fairfield Medical Center. Funds may be used to provide financial assistance to offset the cost of prescription drugs to uninsured or underinsured patients, assist with the purchase of necessary medical equipment or support other programs within the health system such as Cardiovascular Care, Cancer Care, Maternity Care and more.

Become a Grateful Patient

Caregivers who are recognized will receive your story and be pinned as a Legendary Caregiver. Their name will also be included in internal and external communication about the Legendary Caregiver program. To recognize a caregiver, please fill out the form below.


Attend or Sponsor an Event

The FMC Foundation plans multiple events and fundraisers throughout the year. The five biggest events are Brews & Basketball, the Annual Golf Outing, Heart & Lung Run, Red Heart Gala, and the Turkey Day 5K. Additionally, our TWIGS offer special events and fundraisers that also give back to the FMC Foundation.

Support the Care Closet

Clothing items are provided to patients who are in need of items to wear home. Puzzle books, coloring books, and fidgets are provided as a much needed distraction during a patient’s stay. For clothing, any basic sweatpants, t-shirts, socks, and underwear are greatly appreciated (they do not necessarily have to be the ones on this list). Word searches, adult coloring books, colored pencils, and fidget toys are also greatly appreciated.

Legendary Philanthropists

Each year, the Foundation recognizes Legendary Philanthropists in six categories. Eligible nominees are determined by the FMC Foundation team, with the winners chosen by a committee. Award winners have shown a selfless nature, proven record of exceptional generosity and a general spirit of philanthropy. All donors, including Grateful Patients, who have given $500 or more, are recognized on our donor wall in the lobby of our main campus, and are invited to our Legendary Philanthropy Awards.
