The Bend Surgery Center Foundation was formed in the summer of 2009. The mission is to provide scholarships for Central Oregon High School Seniors pursuing careers in healthcare. To date the Foundation has provided $58,500 in scholarship funding to the almost every Central Oregon High School, from Gilchrist to Madras, from Sisters to Crook County and many in between. This year will be the Foundations fourth annual ( or was ) Fundraiser featuring “Jackie Greene” and held at the Tower Theater. The Foundations goal for this year is to provide $35,000 in scholarships. In the future, those students who receive funding and complete undergraduate studies will be eligible to re-apply to the Foundation for Graduate school funding if they are pursuing a career in a healthcare related field.
