About Us

The Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation was formed in 2002 to organize and lead Martha Jefferson's philanthropic relationship with the communities we serve. 

The mission of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Foundation is to develop resources through philanthropy to meet the needs and initiatives of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital. The Foundation functions under the following set of principles.

  • Private, community support is essential for Martha Jefferson to help meet its mission through quality medical care and treatment, its commitment to excellence through personal service, and its objectives to improve community health status.
  • Building supportive and sustaining relationships is as important as attaining financial goals.
  • Through effective stewardship of contributed resources, Martha Jefferson must demonstrate how philanthropy enhances its position of leadership and service in our community.

Since its founding, over $70 million has been raised in support of programs, services, staff, facilities and equipment for Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.
