The outpouring of generosity from our community of donors throughout the COVID-19 crisis has been phenomenal. Thank you!
People all over the region looking to help have given generously to three funds within the Froedtert Health System:
- The Rapid Response Fund through the Froedtert Hospital Foundation
- The Stronger Together Fund for the Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital Foundation
- The Stronger Together/COVID-19 Fund through the Froedtert West Bend Hospital Foundation
All three were created to help meet the rapidly changing needs presented by a pandemic, and I am grateful to you and so many others who helped us rise to the challenge effectively and safely. To date, donors have contributed more than $332,000 to these funds.

Coming Together for Our Healthcare Heroes
With your gift, we have kept our physicians, staff, and patients safe through the purchase of personal protective equipment.
You have helped alleviate a number of burdens on our frontline workers through emergency lodging and meals, childcare and eldercare services, mental health services, and more. Donations have supported an important partnership with the YMCA for daycare needs.
While some of these services have now ended, we continue our ongoing priority of resiliency training and support, emotional counseling, and other Employee Assistance Program resources for our workers navigating the difficulties of this pandemic.
From all of us at Froedtert Hospital and the Froedtert Health System, thank you for your invaluable partnership.
Cathy Jacobson, president and CEO, Froedtert Health
