A Letter from Our Executive Director

Innovation and progress are the results of big thinking, and big thinking is what moves us forward.

That’s exactly where the Asante Foundation finds itself this year with the launch of our most ambitious philanthropic effort to date, AsanteForward, a capital campaign with a 10-year goal of $50 million.

Our commitment is to provide the financial support that enables excellence in comprehensive health care — bringing the latest in treatment innovations and technologies to Southern Oregon.

The purpose of AsanteForward is to raise funds that will transform the quality and scope of health care available in Asante’s nine-county region, providing residents with exceptional medical care right here in our own community. In our rapidly growing region, Asante aims to not only care for the community but also to prepare for the future — planning for today’s needs and tomorrow’s growth.

Philanthropy affords a unique opportunity for hospitals to advance, allowing them to provide the latest in technology, innovations in treatment and services. As a local nonprofit health system, Asante relies on community support to continue offering leading-edge care. And working in partnership with the community, the Asante Foundation has the opportunity to do just that.

Our commitment at the Asante Foundation is to provide the financial support that allows for excellence in Southern Oregon’s health care. Our commitment is to the health and well-being of our community, to a place we call home.

Executive Director, Asante Foundation
