Mission
The Saint Ann Foundation extends the mission of Jesus Christ through the ministry of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in the area of human services. It provides financial support for the development and implementation of programs that address the fundamental causes of human suffering and directly serve the basic human needs of the socially and economically disadvantaged.

Roots
The Saint Ann Foundation, the nation's first "healthcare conversion" foundation was established in 1973 with an $8 million endowment from the sale of the Saint Ann Hospital, a maternity hospital in Cleveland. The hospital, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, opened in 1873 and served thousands of area residents until its closing 100 years later.

In the 28 years since its inception, the Saint Ann Foundation has disbursed more than $29 million in grants to organizations committed to improving the quality of life for the underserved, particularly women, children and youth. The Foundation uses a variety of approaches to grantmaking in striving to fulfill its mission including responsive grants, initiatives and invited proposals.

Responsive Grants
are designed to elicit creative responses to the concerns reflected in the Foundation's goals and priorities.
Kinship Care Initiative
launched in 1999, makes a significant commitment to document the nature and extent of kinship care, and to increase the public's awareness of this growing phenomenon.
Collaboration in Ministry Initiative
created to support collaborative efforts of religious communities located in Region VI of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee), as well as in South Carolina. For more information see the initiative's web pages, or contact Kathy Csank, Program Director.
Invited Proposals
are a response to our commitment to explore, further study, or refine an issue pertaining to our goals and/or services to targeted populations (by invitation only).
