Foundation Events

Since its founding in 1837, The MetroHealth System has been serving the medical needs of the Greater Cleveland community. Today, MetroHealth is one of the largest, most comprehensive health care providers in Northeast Ohio. Excellence in patient care is supported by a continued commitment to remain a leader in community service, medical education and research. We strive to meet the needs of our patients first, by serving with compassion and advocating for the well-being of all, especially those without the ability to pay.

The MetroHealth Foundation is committed to MetroHealth and its mission by engaging the community and raising philanthropic support.

Hosting a Community Fundraising Event is a great way to get involved and support MetroHealth

Your event will play a significant role in providing support and raising awareness for the hospital, and for that we are truly grateful! It's easy to get started:

  1. Decide what kind of fundraiser you want to hold and select a date
  2. Review the MetroHealth Foundation Guidelines for Community Fundraising Events
  3. Register your event with MetroHealth (online registration is quick and easy - all Community Fundraising Events must be registered with The MetroHealth Foundation). Once we receive your application, we'll contact you to answer any questions you may have.
  4. Hold your event and have FUN!
