How You Can Help

Together, we can overcome.

58325_50034

Through crisis, comes hope – in ourselves, in others, and in how we collectively care for the most vulnerable among us. Round the clock, our doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are working diligently to care for patients and do everything possible to stem the tide of COVID-19. But this critical work can’t be accomplished alone.

Acts of generosity and selflessness, large and small, will help us overcome these challenges together as one. To that end, we invite you to participate in our fight against COVID-19. Here’s how:

Support Intermountain's Rapid Response Fund

The Intermountain Foundation has created a Rapid Response Fund to help ensure we have a ready source of flexible funding to meet crisis needs, both now and in the future. Today, the fund helps cover outlays for equipment to protect the health of our caregivers, testing for COVID-19, virus research and treatment, patient support, and other resources to address the threats of this rapidly changing pandemic.

Make a Medical-Grade Mask or Homemade Cloth Face Covering  

Medical-Grade Masks

Join Project Protect, a collaboration between Intermountain Healthcare, the University of Utah, and Latter-Day Saint Charities to provide frontline health workers with medical-grade face masks to protect them from COVID-19. Project Protect will provide all of the materials and instructions - we just need you.

Don’t sew? Please click here to make a financial donation to Project Protect through the Intermountain Foundation’s Rapid Response Fund.

Homemade Cloth Face Coverings

Cloth face coverings are a good way for visitors and non-respiratory patients in our facilities to protect from the spread of disease. Informational guides, patterns, and a list of donation drop-off locations for cloth face coverings is available now. Find out more about how to make your own cloth face covering or how to create and donate homemade cloth face coverings to Intermountain Healthcare caregivers.

For Individuals Fully Recovered from COVID-19: How to Donate Plasma 

People fully recovered from COVID-19 may be able to help critically ill patients. Intermountain Healthcare is participating in an FDA protocol to allow use of blood plasma donated by individuals who fully recovered from COVID-19 and meet other criteria, to treat patients with severe COVID-19. Plasma with COVID-19 antibodies may be able to help patients recover, and this protocol will help us learn more about this promising treatment option.
