Debbie Cloud is executive director of St. Francis Foundation of Santa Barbara. She has a long history of working with Dignity Health.  In 1984, she began working at the St. Francis Medical Center of Santa Barbara as foundation coordinator, responsible for raising funds for building, equipment and community benefit programs at the hospital, as well as managing special events and volunteers.

St. Francis Medical Center became part of the Catholic Healthcare West system in the mid 1990’s and was ultimately sold and permanently closed in 2003.  When the hospital closed, the foundation reorganized under Dignity Health and is now a granting organization in Santa Barbara that annually gives to organizations that exemplify the vision and values of Dignity Health, with the goal of supporting access to healthcare in our community, with particular emphasis on the poor.
