The Franciscan Heritage Society was established in 2006 as a leadership gift club for annual giving. Since Lourdes Health System was founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, it is only appropriate to honor the Sisters and St. Francis, the founder of the Franciscan Order. St. Francis’ appeal is timeless and his love for the poor, compassion for the sick and respect for nature serve as an inspiration for all.
These gifts to the Foundation help meet the ongoing need for funds to support our mission.These contributions are used on a daily basis where the needs and opportunities are greatest.
All members of the Franciscan Heritage Society are invited to annual donor events. All donors also receive Healthtalk, Lourdes Health system’s health promotion publication.
