Philanthropic investments from generous community members have played a critical role in helping to advance the strategic priorities of our health system. Gifts to the Lancaster General Health Foundation stay local to support the mission of Lancaster General Health and meet our region’s evolving health care needs.

Over the years, gifts helped create patient assistance funds, make new facilities possible, acquire advanced technology, and develop innovative care models to support our most vulnerable patients.

The Lancaster General Health Foundation Board of Trustees identifies annual priorities for giving that align with Lancaster General Health’s strategic plan. The Foundation serves as the centralized collection point for all contributions and funding requests for Lancaster General Health, the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute, the Heart & Vascular Institute, the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, Women & Babies Hospital, and other LG Health affiliates.

COVID-19 Impactful Giving

LG Health is closely monitoring COVID-19 daily and is in close contact with local and state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to remain vigilant against the spread of the virus. In this ever-changing climate, many have asked how they can assist the effort healthcare workers are making to treat patients affected by the virus.

Adherence to recommended social distancing is the best way to help the spread of the virus but in addition to that, you can consider making a gift to the LG Health Foundation.

Thank you for your partnership with LG Health through philanthropy. Your generosity enables LG Health to serve our community, most notably in times of uncertainty and crisis.

Make a Gift

Make a Gift to the LG Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, which will support the hospital’s most urgent needs as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve rapidly. Your support will have an immediate impact on our ability to quickly respond to the ongoing pandemic and best serve the needs of our community’s health.

While making your gift, please consider recognizing a Healthcare Hero. If you have ever received care from Lancaster General Health, you have likely experienced compassionate and high-quality service from members of our staff. Now is the time to recognize an individual caregiver, physician, nurse, medical department, or the entire healthcare team at LG Health. Even if it’s been months or years since your last visit, there is no expiration date for gratitude. We’ll share any messages with those honored to let our staff know our community is standing with them as they serve on the front lines.

Your gifts are much appreciated by the LG Health Foundation and by our entire clinical staff. Your support illustrates that when it comes to the health of the community, we are truly in this together.
