Sparrow's mission to improve the health and well-being of our community rests on a foundation of commitment. More than one hundred years ago, the philanthropic investment of one man—Edward W. Sparrow—changed the face of care in mid-Michigan. Today, with the help of our donors, our commitment to the men, women, and children of mid-Michigan is stronger than ever.

Giving to the Sparrow Foundation enables the health system to make important advancements in care—whether it be supporting Hospice or developments in the Heart Center, Neurosciences or the Burn Center—the gifts of our donors allow Sparrow Foundation to support the health system's good works. The philanthropic giving of the individuals and companies represented in these pages reach every corner of our community.

In 2009 alone, gifts to the Foundation from the Sparrow Hospital's Guild supported the renovation of the Oncology Waiting room in our Cancer Center; the Dart Foundation continued their investment in the William and Claire Dart Stroke Center, bringing together advanced equipment, expert physicians, and highly trained staff to deliver cutting edge care; and donors to the Heart Center are supporting the purchase and installation of new technologies which will be used to educate medical students, residents, fellows, physicians and other allied health professionals.

To our donors, those who give to the greater good, we say thank you.
