About The Foundation for TGMC

It shall be the mission of the Foundation to develop and maintain a comprehensive program of financial giving in the community for the sole purpose of promoting, developing, and expanding the services, functions, purpose, and mission of TGMC in providing exceptional healthcare with compassion.

The Foundation for Terrebonne General Medical Center, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, serves as the philanthropic branch of Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC). It is through the generous support of the people of this community that the Foundation will allow TGMC to continue to build upon its sterling reputation of providing professional health services in a caring environment. Financial gifts to the Foundation, which are tax deductible, will make a difference in the lives of our patients and to the overall physical health and economic well-being of our community.

The Foundation was created strictly to support, develop, and expand the services, functions, purpose, and mission of TGMC in providing outstanding medical services in Terrebonne Parish. The Foundation will accomplish its mission by initiating and sustaining comprehensive fund development programs.

The Board recognizes that proper healthcare, especially at TGMC, touches the lives of nearly everyone in the community. The individual, organization or business knows best how to help his or her community and is quite cable of deciding which area(s) of healthcare his or her donation will impact the most people. It is for this reason that the Foundation allows donors to designate the area of healthcare at TGMC they wish their contribution to impact. The donation may be made to the general categories of:

  • Women’s Center
  • Outreach programs
  • Preventative screenings
  • Cardiovascular
  • Rehabilitative Services
  • Diabetes
  • Childhood diseases
  • Employee Emergencies
  • Others

...or just left to the Foundation to route the contribution to the most needed area.

The appropriate TGMC Department designated to receive the gift will be able to decide the most beneficial use of the funds to continue to enhance their services to the public.

The all volunteer Board of Directors of the Foundation recognizes that TGMC is a nationally recognized healthcare organization that provides state-of-the-art technology and advanced services in a variety of areas of healthcare. One of the goals of the Foundation Board is to bring about a greater awareness of the importance of TGMC to not only the overall physical health of this community, but to its economic future as well. As a 321 bed acute healthcare facility, TGMC is the largest and leading medical facility in the tri-parish area and continues to employ talented healthcare professionals from across the globe. The continued growth of TGMC is crucial to the steady rise of Houma-Terrebonne as a regional hub for retail outlets, culture, housing, seafood, oil and gas related industries and, of course, healthcare.

As you browse through our web site, you will see the many ways you can make a contribution. Please feel free to contact a member of the Foundation Board or staff so that we can discuss a variety of giving opportunities with you. Every gift to The Foundation for Terrebonne General Medical Center, regardless of the size, is an important step in continuing the community support for TGMC and for excellent healthcare in general. Again, all gifts are tax-deductible.

We greatly value your contribution and support!
