Frequently Asked Questions

Can I donate to this new foundation?

Absolutely. The Crozer-Keystone Community Foundation is a not-for-profit entity able to accept tax-deductible contributions.

How can I make a donation to a Crozer-Keystone Health System hospitals, hospice or home care?

Since its acquisition by Prospect Medical Holdings, Inc. Crozer-Keystone Health System cannot accept charitable donations. We urge you to consider making a donation to the Crozer-Keystone Community Foundation, which continues to provide for the health, social, and educational needs of the people of Delaware County.

What happened to the money I donated to the Crozer-Chester Foundation or Delco Memorial Foundation in the past?

If your money was not already spent to ensure that our community had state-of-the-art facilities to meet the healthcare needs of the people of Delaware County, it was transferred to the Crozer-Keystone Community Foundation to help meet the health, education and social needs of the people of Delaware County.

Does Crozer-Keystone Health System or Prospect Medical Holdings control this foundation or get any of the donated money?

No. The Crozer-Keystone Community Foundation is independent of the health system, Prospect, or any other organization.

What happened to the events, like the Gala and Girls’ Night Out?

The new foundation will have a busy fall with these events planned for fundraising and “friendraising”:

  • Sept. 9-15 25th Anniversary of Women and Children’s Health Services. See preliminary details and join our email list for more updates!
  • Oct. 9 – Girls Night Out – Learn more and get involved. November – CKCFoundation Launch Event, stay tuned for details.

Sign up for the foundation’s e-newsletter for up-to-date info and news about ways you too can get involved and give back to your Delaware County community.

How do I apply for grants or funding from the new foundation?

Processes for considering new grants and programs are still under development.

My will contains a donation to one of the old foundations. Do I need to change my will?

You may. Please contact us and we will be happy to work with you or your advisor to provide information or assistance with planned gifts.
