December 3, 2019 – This Giving Tuesday, please consider pausing to make a donation to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation and community healthcare.

Our fundraising efforts are currently aimed at supporting local women and infants at Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

The Family Birth Center at SNMH is in need of new fetal monitors used to monitor infant heartrates, a new neo natal cardiac monitor to monitor heartrates of especially vulnerable infants, and a resuscitation warmer to aid with breathing difficulties while also keeping babies warm.

In addition, we are coordinating efforts with SNMH’s Women’s Imaging Center on the purchase a new, state-of-the-art mammography unit. Regular mammograms help save lives by detecting breast cancer in its earliest stages. Over 4,000 patients rely on SNMH to provide mammogram screenings.

Giving Tuesday gifts to SNMHF can also be directed to any area of the Hospital near and dear to your heart. In addition to equipment for the Family Birth Center and a new mammography machine, donations are still being accepted for the SNMH Emergency Department transformation, as well as Cardiac Department, Cardiac Rehab, Alzheimer’s Outreach Program, Area of Greatest Need and other.

To make a donation to SNMHF mail a check made out to SNMHF to P.O. Box 1810 Grass Valley, CA 95945 or make a secure online donation by visiting You can also call SNMHF at (530) 477-9700.
