Who we are

Montage Health Foundation was formed in 2017 to provide philanthropic support to Montage Health and its family of companies, including Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. The foundation’s mission is to advance the vision and strategic priorities of Montage Health by inspiring giving that enhances and improves the health of the entire community.

The foundation is guided by a board of community members who are passionate about the work and impact of Montage Health. They are responsible for raising and distributing funds that support existing programs and also help finance new services where there is need. Board members work closely with foundation staff, a team led by Kevin Causey, vice president/chief development officer.
