Because of the efforts of community hospitals, like ProMedica Fostoria Community 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 Fostoria Community 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 Fostoria Community 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 about ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital Foundation and how you can help, call 419-436-6824.

Walk for Diabetes
The Walk for Diabetes celebrates living well with diabetes. It combines the three basics of successfully managing diabetes: exercise, nutrition and knowledge.
Participants walk around the scenic Lake View Trails on the paved path at their own pace for as long or as little as they like. The trail forms a figure eight around the reservoirs with one loop measuring .7 mile and the other 1.3 miles.
Nutritious snacks are available. Certified diabetes educators and nurses from ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital provide free screenings as well as consultations.
The Walk is also a fundraiser, raising funds to sustain the Diabetes Fund in the ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital Foundation. Roughly one in every three participants in the Diabetes Education Program at ProMedica Fostoria Community Hospital is helped by the Diabetes Fund. Last year, of the 80 individuals served by the program, the Diabetes Fund provided scholarship assistance for 24 of them and prescription assistance for six. The Fund also provided free blood sugar level screenings at local events as well as diabetes education program enhancements. Since 2001 the program has helped more than 260 people manage their diabetes.
For more information about upcoming Walk for Diabetes events, please contact the Foundation at 419-436-6824 or the Diabetes Education at 419-436-6629.

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
