Bayhealth Foundation Ramps Up Campaign

33Staff Report

Through the fundraising initiative called the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III, the Bayhealth Foundation is soliciting support for the new health campus in southern Delaware. The Foundation kicked off the quiet portion of the campaign in 2015. The Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III – led by Bayhealth, Inc. Board Member and Campaign Chair William “Bill” Strickland – has a goal to raise $15 million in support of the new health campus. To meet their goals, Strickland and the committee closely collaborate with the Bayhealth Foundation staff and its president, Lindsay Rhodenbaugh, D.Min.

The new health campus in southern Delaware will be more than a hospital; it will provide residents with local, convenient access to a wide array of medical services. In September, Bayhealth announced a partnership with Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children and Nemours SeniorCare to provide services at a dedicated facility located on the new health campus.

As of Dec. 31, the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III has raised $7.5 million – nearly half of the effort’s total goal.“The early response from faithful citizens in southern Delaware has been fantastic,” said Rhodenbaugh, “Our focus has been on major gifts from a relatively small group of people. The community is already stepping up in a big way, propelling the Campaign to a very successful start.”

In 2016, Strickland, the committee, and the Bayhealth Foundation will continue to invite members of the southern Delaware community and philanthropic organizations to take part in the effort. “Our outreach to potential donors who can make significant commitments will continue,” said Strickland. “The committee and I will also begin conversations with the southern Delaware business community. We want people to know how important the new health campus is to the wellbeing of everyone in our area. Our goal is to maintain the momentum that the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III has achieved.”

To find out how to support Bayhealth’s new health campus through the Bayhealth Foundation, individuals and businesses are asked to call 302-744-7015 or visit bayhealthfoundation.org.
