Supporting Our Mission

You are invited to consider supporting the Foundations’ strategies as a Donor – directly to the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation or Osteopathic Heritage Foundation of Nelsonville, or to one of the many organizations benefitting from foundation support.  If you are considering a contribution, please consult your tax advisor.

The Foundations’ philanthropic funds originated from generous giving and proceeds from the 1998 asset sale of Doctors Hospital (Columbus) and Doctors Hospital of Nelsonville. Funds to support our strategies are generated through prudent investing and stewardship. We do not actively solicit charitable contributions, but are honored when recognized by those who choose to support our mission and strategies. We are committed to responsible management of financial resources. 

With the generous contributions, coupled with Foundation funding, memorial tributes have been established to recognize individuals for their commitment to the mission of the Foundations, the community and osteopathic medicine.  

The Osteopathic Heritage Foundations are recognized as valued philanthropic organizations, providing vital support to a wide range of agencies whose services and programs help advance the mission to improve the health and quality of life in the community through education, research and service consistent with our osteopathic heritage.  Thank you for your consideration and support.
