Why Give to Piedmont Augusta Foundation

Piedmont Augusta Foundation donors understand that their gifts immediately impact the community, our hospital and the patients we serve. 100% of your gift supports healthcare services in our region.


Patient Assistance

Piedmont Augusta Foundation provides financial support each year to our financially qualified patients. We allow patients to focus on healing and relieve the stress of how to pay for medicines, a mortgage, or even transportation to appointments.


Scholarships & Continuing Education

Two women standing at a signPiedmont Augusta Foundation has partnered with several local nursing education institutions, beginning with Augusta Technical College and, with additional gifts, is able to partner with other institutions for nursing education to fund scholarships for students pursuing a career in Licensed Practical Nursing or Associate Degree Nursing (RN). Our goal is to expand these partnerships to those pursuing four-year degrees (Bachelor of Science-RN) in nursing as well.  In return, the scholarship recipients sign work agreements with our hospitals, which keep nurses in our community and help improve the quality and safety of patient care as well as patient satisfaction.  It also goes directly to improving satisfaction for nurses who work in our hospitals by addressing staff shortages.

Piedmont Augusta Foundation is proud to fund scholarships for qualified employees who choose to further their healthcare education. The Foundation also has specific endowments that pay for continuing education costs for employees. Having the best educated and trained employees is a priority for Piedmont Augusta and Piedmont Augusta Foundation.
