Why Give with James McDonald Genesis Foundation

Supporting Healthcare in our Communities

    The Foundation’s mission is: To promote charitable support for Genesis HealthCare System and share its mission “to provide compassionate, quality healthcare.” The Foundation works toward that goal by encouraging and overseeing gifts, grants, bequests and donations from private citizens, businesses and organizations.

    Your contributions to Genesis make a difference. In these times of economic turmoil, you have continued to support us as we provide compassionate, quality care to those who live in our communities, and we are grateful.

    Annually, the foundation receives support from estates established years ago by very generous individuals interested in making a lasting difference on the quality of healthcare within our community.

    We are also fortunate to have the support of volunteers who raise money each year through special events such as the ProAm Golf Tournament and other events. Other sources of revenue include memorial contributions and grants.

    A copy of the foundation's financial statements and IRS Form 990 may be viewed at the corporate office, 1135 Maple Ave., Zanesville, OH 43701.

    Since its inception in 1999 through the merger of the Bethesda Hospital Foundation and the Good Samaritan Medical Center Foundation, the Genesis HealthCare Foundation has provided over $44.6 million in financial support to the community through life-saving projects and programs at Genesis HealthCare System.
