About Spectrum Health Foundation

Since 1993, Spectrum Health Foundation has been funded by the generosity of our donors to equip our non-profit health system to deliver personalized health made simple, affordable and exceptional. Our mission is to raise, oversee and allocate funds to ensure that our patients and their families receive the quality care they expect and deserve.

One doesn’t have to look far to see the significant impact of our donors’ generosity throughout Spectrum Health and our community. Youth suicide prevention, child and family life, virtual health care, cardiovascular research and advancements in health equity are just a few of the philanthropy-supported programs and services that can improve the health (and sometimes even save the lives) of our patients.

We ourselves are parents, brothers, wives, daughters, kids and grandparents…and we are also your neighbors. We hope you’ll always remember that the things that matter most to you also matter to us. Together we all can make a difference in the lives of our loved ones as they navigate their health care journeys.
