Capital Region Medical Foundation

The Capital Region Medical Foundation's mission - the reason we exist - is to support the life-saving work of Capital Region Medical Center. The Foundation seeks gifts for purposes that fulfill the Medical Center's mission of providing the best possible medical care to our community. All gifts are vital to help the Medical Center meet current priorities and to secure a funding base to invest for the future. 

The Foundation seeks to provide donors with opportunities to invest in Capital Region in a manner that best meets their personal goals and financial situation. We can help donors make a meaningful gift that will enhance the Medical Center's services today and for many years to come. 


The Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) corporation from the Medical Center, and all gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible in accordance with IRS charitable contributions guidelines. The Foundation is directed by Rita Kempker, CFRE, Capital Region Medical Foundation Executive Director. Kempker has been with the Foundation since its office opened in February of 1990. The Foundation is overseen by 31 Board of Trustees, 30 of whom are elected by the Board of Governors.
