Foundation Special Events
The Dewitt Community Hospital Foundation hosts events to raise money and awareness within the community.
Since 1997, The DeWitt Community Hospital Foundation has raised more than $5.8 million to improve the health and wellness of Clinton County residents. The money that is collected goes toward capital campaigns, the scholarship program, injury prevention, health & wellness education, and our support of the Genesis Philanthropy initiatives.
