In November 2018, St. John’s Health Foundation established a Men’s Health Fund! This fund was created with support from St. John’s employees who participated in a successful fundraising effort called No Shave November. In November 2019, the fundraiser evolved into Mustaches for Men’s Health. Men from St. John’s Health, the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Teton County School District, Teton Science School, Town of Jackson, and the Jackson Hole Community grew mustaches and raised funds for men’s health. The fund has helped many community members access health care that they would not otherwise be able to afford.
This fund is designed to provide support to men in our community who:
- Are in need of preventative health services but cannot afford them
- Need support for travel to medical treatments
- Are in active treatment and need financial support for items like childcare, groceries, or medicine.
Supported requests will include prostrate and other screenings, annual wellness checkups, travel expenses for medical care, medication, vasectomies and other areas of men’s health care.
