Inspira Health announces merger of fundraising arms

Inspira Health announced Wednesday that its Cumberland/Salem and Gloucester County fundraising arms have merged.

The new entitiy, the Inspira Health Foundation, will continue on its mission to raise money and awareness in support Inspira’s impact on the health and well-being of South Jersey residents, Inspira said.

“The merger of Inspira Health Foundation Cumberland/Salem and Inspira Health Foundation Gloucester County represents the next generation of health care philanthropy for our entire region,” Penny Sager-Rossi, co-chair, Inspira Health Foundation, said. “Giving can still be designated to the area in which a donor lives, but the merger enables the Foundation to strategically align donor interests with priorities across the entire Inspira service area.”

The merger, Inspira said, follows the success of its “Invest. Impact. Inspire.” capital campaign that raised more than $23 million.

“As Inspira grows across the region, it is invaluable for us to have dedicated and supportive ambassadors,” John DiAngelo, CEO and president, Inspira Health, said. “The merger of Inspira’s two foundations is another example of how Inspira is there for our community, in our community. The impact made by philanthropy is real and tangible, and this united Foundation will continue to serve a significant and necessary role for our patients.”
