About Us

Our Purpose

Created in 1986, the Ascension Borgess-Lee Foundation is the official fundraising arm of Ascension Borgess-Lee  Hospital in Dowagiac. Today, when individuals and community organizations provide financial support, they continue the tradition of charitable giving that has always been an integral part of how we support Ascension Borgess-Lee Hospital’s most urgent needs.

Our primary focus is on assisting essential local projects that will help make comprehensive healthcare services accessible to everyone. Ascension Borgess Foundation is a qualified charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, ID #23-7222558.

Philanthropy Is Important To Your Health And Helps Us Serve All Who Need Care

Our hospitals and programs are committed to providing the highest quality patient care experience every day, everywhere, for everyone. Delivering this top level of care depends, to a great extent, on financial resources, of which philanthropy is a significant source.

Your donations help us:

  • Build and expand healthcare facilities
  • Acquire the latest medical technology
  • Educate our medical staff
  • Enhance community programs
  • Serve the poor; a special part of our mission. Each year, we provide millions of dollars in uncompensated care for those in need.
