The Scripps Health Foundation is the fundraising arm of Scripps Health, a not-for-profit organization operating five hospitals and various clinics in the San Diego County area. Scripps Health relies upon philanthropy to sustain its operations and growth. The population in San Diego County is increasing at a brisk pace. Hospital facilities and emergency rooms are already over crowded. To fulfill the health care needs of the local community, expansion of emergency and other hospital facilities are urgently needed. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been earmarked for Scripps Health expansion programs much of this to come from charitable contributions. A portion of the proceeds derived from the sale of these paintings will be contributed to the Scripps Health Foundation.
