About Us

About The Foundation

The Foundation provides financial support for basic necessities such as food, clothing, prescriptions, and oxygen to the uninsured and underinsured patients in our community.

All funds raised by the Foundation benefit our patients and supports hospital programs.

Blount Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 with Blount Memorial Hospital being our sole member. Blount Memorial Hospital also provides all operating expense for the Foundation so ALL funds raised benefit our patients.  To see a little bit more about us, please watch the video the Foundation created in partnership with Pellissippi State Community College to commemorate the Hospital’s 75th anniversary and the Foundation’s 33rd anniversary.
