Our Foundation

Because of the efforts of community hospitals, like ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital, far more patients survive serious diseases and injuries than would have been possible just a few years ago. Every new piece of equipment and each new medical professional we recruit makes every family in our region—including yours—a little healthier.

A vital source of funding our efforts to improve your health and well-being is the philanthropic support of people like you! The generosity of our donors provides us the opportunity to maintain a hospital that is modern and progressive. Without this community support, many of these services and programs would simply not be possible.

The professionals at ProMedica Defiance Regional Foundation help caring donors establish the charitable venue that best suits their goals. There are many ways you can help: annual giving, planned giving, specific needs, memorial gifts or gifts in honor of a recipient.

As a not-for-profit community hospital, ProMedica Defiance Regional depends heavily on the generosity of our caring donors to fulfill our primary mission. Every gift, no matter how large or small, helps to save lives and create a better community.

You can make a difference! For more information, contact the ProMedica Defiance Regional Foundation.

Families and philanthropic purpose

Philanthropy can be a force that unites and focuses a family. At ProMedica, we have helped generations of families fulfill their philanthropic visions. We bring extensive skill, knowledge and hands-on experience to support your family in defining and realizing their unique philanthropic purpose.

Many families face a significant challenge in passing the values of personal commitment, involvement and contribution to younger generations. Philanthropy is a powerful, proven means for integrating wealth and family by bridging generations and uniting family members around common causes and shared concerns. Philanthropy empowers individual family members by offering them significant responsibility for activities and issues that are important to them.

Define your purpose

Philanthropic efforts require focus in order to succeed. Betsy Kelsey, Director ProMedica Planned Giving, offers you personal support and an array of tools to help you and your family assess your goals, values and interests, allowing you to create a philanthropic road map to guide you in developing a more formal statement of purpose, including:

What you want your philanthropy to stand for

The issues, geography and populations you want to affect

How your giving will achieve your goals
