Programs to Support
Pullman Regional Hospital provides several different programs that you can support.
Endowment for Quality and Access
The Endowment for Quality and Access is managed by the Foundation and provides not only perpetual annual support for a designated purpose at Pullman Regional Hospital, but also an opportunity to appropriately recognize donors who make significant contributions to the hospital. Your help is needed in funding access to quality care—Learn how you can make a difference.
Annual Giving for Excellence Fund Drive (Pullman Regional Hospital's highest needs, which includes the building expansion for Same-Day Services)
Medical technology and providing a space of healing plays an increasingly important role in healthcare. Your gift can help us continue to provide the latest in technological advances in medicine for our patients and physicians. Recently, the Foundation assisted the hospital in the purchase of the da Vinci Si robotic-assisted surgical system, a HydroWorx Therapy Pool, 3-D breast Tomosynthesis mammography, and 13 items for heart health and women’s and children’s health. In 2016, philanthropy helped fund the Surgery Expansion Project—which provided a fourth operating room and upgrades to surgical technology. Help us fund the tools and space of healing to complement the care provided by our talented healthcare professionals—Learn more.
The Center for Learning and Innovation serves as the catalyst for exploring alternative models of care delivery, which focus attention on prevention of illness and support individuals desires to achieve and maintain optimal fitness and wellness in their lives. Efforts focus on cost-effective approaches to maintaining health. Beyond recognizing the ever-changing dynamic of healthcare, we seek to embrace it. We are acting on this opportunity to think differently, to make bold changes and to be proactive. From within, we foster an environment to embolden new ideas for a better way to care for patients. Our community is rich with resources and creative minds; together, we can transform healthcare to serve our unique needs. Learn more.

Bill Gaskins Pharmacy Scholars Fund
The Bill Gaskins Pharmacy Scholars Fund will provide scholarships to Washington State University pharmacy students who train at Pullman Regional Hospital during the final year of their education. WSU's College of Pharmacy is moving to Spokane, and the funding will help students defray some of the costs associated with moving back to hospitals on the Palouse for training.
In Loving Tribute
Honor friends or family who have passed with an In Loving Tribute gift and be a part of ensuring excellence at Pullman Regional Hospital. In Loving Tribute memorials support the Unrestricted Fund, which supports the hospital's highest needs. These memorials of $10,000 or more are recognized on a special display at the hospital. Families whose loved ones have already received memorials to the hospital can contribute additional funds to meet the required Tribute gift level of $10,000. If you are interested in making an In Loving Tribute memorial gift, please call the Foundation office at (509) 332-2046.
Honor a Care Giver
The Guardian Angel program gives grateful patients an opportunity to honor a physician or hospital staff member while supporting Pullman Regional Hospital. Guardian Angel gifts support the hospital's highest needs.
How Does It Work?
- A grateful patient or family makes a minimum donation of $250 per honoree to Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation.
- The Guardian Angel will be notified of your generous donation.
- The Guardian Angel (caregiver) receives a custom-crafted angel pin to proudly wear on his or her lapel.
- Guardian Angel recipients' names are published in the Foundation's Annual Report.
Anyone can be recognized through the Guardian Angel program, including physicians, nurses, support staff and deceased healthcare professionals. A grateful patient also has the option to honor Pullman Regional Hospital or an entire department as a Guardian Angel instead of an individual.
You can remember a loved one by making a gift to Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation honoring that individual. Memorials made support the Unrestricted Fund, which supports the hospital's highest needs.
Family members are notified of your thoughtful gift to the memorial upon receipt. Memorials are published in the Foundation's Annual Report to the Community.
If you are designating Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation to receive memorial gifts in honor of your loved one, we recommend including the following in the obituary: "In lieu of flowers" or "donations may be made to Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation, 840 SE Bishop Blvd., Suite 200, Pullman, WA 99163."
The Foundation can also provide you with donation envelopes to distribute to families and friends.
