Donating to MayView
Patient revenues only cover 70% of the cost of providing care to our patients. In spite of financial challenges as the continuing economic crisis decreases our revenues from many sources and increases the number of patients who need our care, MayView has sustained its services and increased the types, availability and quality of services for those in our community who are most in need.
A growing number of new patients aged 45-64 have untreated chronic conditions for which they have delayed treatment because they felt they couldn’t afford health care while they were uninsured, and many have been out of work for years.
It is because of people like you who donate to MayView that we are able to help so many people and we are very grateful for that.
What Can My Donation Do for the Community?
- $25 buys a PPD (TB screening test)
- $50 helps seniors receive blood pressure or blood sugar monitoring
- $100 allows us to treat one patient for flu or respiratory infection
- $250 will pay for an annual physical exam for two uninsured people
- $500 is enough to treat one patient with chronic disease for one year
- $1,000 can give two kids a one-year supply of asthma medication
- $12,000 is the cost of an ultrasound machine which gives our patients and doctors important information about the health of pre-term babies

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
MayView thanks all its many donors, including our individual donors for their investment in high quality health care to benefit those in our community who would not have access to these services without the generosity of our donors.
In addition, we would like to thank Santa Clara County and Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital Systems (SCVH&HS) for their continuing support of our clinics, cash and kind. SCVH&HS also makes it possible for us to coordinate care for our patients who need specialty services, emergency care, and hospital-based services.
We receive core operating support from El Camino Hospital Community Benefit Program, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Blue Shield Foundation of California, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Sobrato Family Foundation, Palo Alto Medical Foundation and the cities of Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale. We are particularly grateful for this kind of support that puts dollars directly to pursuit of our mission.
Our programs and initiatives are also supported by the the Community Health Partnership, Mountain View Kiwanis Club, Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, Palo Alto Rotary Club and Foothills Congregational Church. We’ve also been supported with gifts of furniture from Zero Divide and the Asian Pacific Islander American Health Forum.
