In 1960, community and Hospital leaders formed the Sparrow Memorial and Endowment Foundation, known today as the Sparrow Foundation.  Founded on the principles of providing quality, compassionate health care to everyone, every time, funding is provided for equipment, services, facilities, educational programs and research that would otherwise not be possible. In 2011 alone, over $3,000,000 was donated to Sparrow Foundation, providing funding for over 150 projects benefitting the health and well being of our community and caregivers.


The Sparrow Foundation is located across from Sparrow Hospital's main campus on East Michigan Avenue in Lansing, Michigan.  Along with day-to-day fund development activities, our dedicated staff support several fundraising events throughout the year.  Direction is provided by the Sparrow Foundation Board of Directors, whose membership is comprised of outstanding community and hospital leaders.  Please contact us; we welcome the opportunity to discuss our work.
