San Antonio Community Hospital is a not-for-profit, 280-bed acute care hospital in Upland, California. For 100 years, the hospital has served the rapidly growing population of California’s Inland Empire. Communities in the hospital’s service area include Upland, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Chino, Claremont, and Montclair.
The San Antonio Hospital Foundation carries this special distinction: Its cost of raising one dollar has for the past 10 years consistently been less than 25 cents. In 2007, the foundation has held the cost of raising one dollar to just 17 cents. The average cost to raise a dollar for a hospital of San Antonio’s size is currently 41 cents, according to the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy. In fact, since the San Antonio Hospital Foundation relies primarily on the earned income from an endowment for its operations, in real terms the cost to the hospital for a fundraising office is nearly zero.
