The Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center Foundation


Families deserve access to everything they need to thrive. And that’s why we’re committed to providing compassionate, culturally competent and universally accessible health care for Kansas City. Partner with us as we build healthier families, enrich our neighborhoods and strengthen our community. Learn more about donating and volunteering.

The Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center Foundation was created to support our role as a critical access point for care to more than 25,000 patients in Kansas City. Rodgers Health provides more than $6.5 million in charity care each year. This includes not only medical, dental and behavioral health, but pharmacy, WIC and imaging services as well.

The Foundation’s mission is to improve the health of our community through philanthropy by raising funds and friends for the benefit of Rodgers Health. Volunteering at an event, sharing a gift, advocating in the community, or hosting a third-party fundraiser are all ways to serve the Foundation.

We would love to show you around our facility! To schedule a tour, or for more information about how you can support our mission, contact us at
