SwedishAmerican Foundation


foundation staff


The mission of the SwedishAmerican Foundation is to support the healing mission of SwedishAmerican Hospital. SwedishAmerican Foundation creates and provides programs that improve the medical health and economic strength of the Rockford community.


Our vision is to work with our community to augment the healing mission of SwedishAmerican Health System, thereby making the Rockford region a healthier and more secure place to live, work and raise families. Established in 1981, SwedishAmerican Foundation raises, invest and distributes funds which benefit not only SwedishAmerican Hospital but our clinics, staff and surrounding neighborhood. We support local community organizations that further the mission of SwedishAmerican. SwedishAmerican Foundation offers many opportunities and ways to give. Every dollar contributed is used to impact the Rockford community’s health and well-being. Donations raised in Rockford stay in Rockford.
