  • OGHS Foundation

    OGHS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to support the vision of Opelousas General Health System. It provides the opportunity for the hospital family and the community to support OGHS through increased community understanding and support. Together they share an interest in supporting healthcare and the work being done at OGHS.

  • Fund Raising Divisions

    In addition to the Employee Giving division, OGHS Foundation is organized into five other major fund raising divisions: Annual Gifts, Planned Gifts, Business and Industry Gifts. Special Gifts and Signature Gifts each chaired by a highly respected volunteer leader in the community. All of these support Opelousas General Health System's effort to enhance healthcare in our community.

    All prior fundraising events for outside organizations have been discontinued. We have combined all fundraising for these organizations into our employee giving campaign.
