When you give to The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, you give where care matters most.
The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital supports top-ranked Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine, The Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center and Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College.
Gifts like yours are supporting major research across a broad spectrum of disciplines such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, transplant and more. For example, researchers are conducting a clinical trial testing several new drugs that hold promise of better therapies for heart failure and heart transplant patients. The drug trials are nearing completion; the next stage is formal approval by the Food and Drug Administration so the drugs can be used with patients in the clinic setting.
Through gifts like yours to The Foundation, Barnes-Jewish Hospital gave more than 32,000 flu shots to the community in 2012. Gifts also supported programs such as AWARE (Assisting Women with Advocacy Resources and Education). In 2012, AWARE's Client Assistance Fund provided assistance to 100 patients and employees experiencing abuse by a partner with obtaining goods and services necessary for the health, safety and well being of themselves and their children.
Education & Scholarships

Patient Care & Support
In 2012, gifts to The Foundation helped more than 11,000 patients in financial need.
