Col. Patrick S. Madigan, MD, Foundation

All Vounteer, NonProfit 501(c)3

The Madigan Foundation is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization formed in 1995 to support military families, active and retired and Madigan Army Medical Center, through programs designed to improve and enhance the quality of care and life of patients, their families and their healthcare providers. The Board is composed of military retirees and community leaders. A designated board member oversees each program the Foundation supports.

The Foundation supports the patients, families, and staff of the Madigan Army Medical Center in areas not covered by federal funds. The Foundation is able to assist family members coping with deployed spouses, uncertain futures, and unplanned-for medical expenses. Without the Foundation's assistance, their children may go without glasses and fall behind in school, may travel without a car seat, and may not have the money for a ride home from the emergency room. 

The Foundation obtains funds from a variety of sources to meet these needs. Federal law prohibits gifts to a federal hospital or employee; however, the Foundation can receive gifts for memorial gifts, bequests, and gifts in honor of a loved one, favorite employee, clinic or department, gifts as Friend of Madigan, or through the Combined Federal Campaign.

An all-volunteer Board and dedicated focus on mission, together with an average overhead of approximately 5%, allows the Foundation to serve as a trusted recipient for gifts, memorials, and bequethals. In 2017, the Foundation served over 3,500 active duty military members, retirees and families.
