Listed and linked below are projects that need your help. Whichever you choose, Sparrow Foundation appreciates your commitment to our community. 


Current funding priorities include:


The Sparrow Neurosciences Center is housed in the top two floors of the Sparrow Tower. Serving individuals and their families from throughout our region and beyond, this comprehensive patient-centered facility brings together the William & Claire Dart Stroke Center, Neuro trauma Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU), and more.


The Deborah L. and Michael G. Harrison Mammography Endowment was founded by the courage of one local woman after a personal cancer journey inspired her to do something incredible for the women in our community. The endowment ensures permanent funding for breast cancer education and quality imaging care for all women of mid-Michigan. 


The Pediatric Sub-Specialty Surgeon Endowment Fund will ensure the littlest of patients can receive all the care they need at Sparrow. Our goal is to reduce the gap that exists within the availability of medical sub-specialty surgical care for Mid-Michigan children.  We must raise the necessary funds to recruit and retain world-class sub-specialty surgeons, ensuring that all the children in our community receive the best possible care. Through your support of the Sparrow Children’s Center we can achieve the highest quality care right here in Lansing.
