Financial Assistance

The Department of Church and Community Relations seeks to provide financial assistance through four different means:

  • Baptist Benevolent Fund (see Mother’s Day Offering)
  • Discretionary Fund
  • Wood Richmond Fund
  • Church and Community Relations Fund


This fund is a budgeted item in the Department and receives additional support from the gifts of individuals, churches, civic groups, and employee parking fines. The fund provides assistance (under $10) to patients and families for prescriptions, meals, transportation and parking.


This fund is part of the Baptist Benevolent Fund and helps financially distressed patients pay small balances (usually under $1,000) for outpatient tests and procedures. Patients are financially screened by Patient Financial Resources to determine needs.


This fund helps pay for an initial OPD clinic appointment for patients who do not have the monies to see a physician.
