Because of the efforts of community hospitals, like ProMedica Toledo Children's Hospital, far more patients survive serious diseases and injuries than would have been possible just a few years ago. Every new piece of equipment and each new medical professional we recruit makes every family in our region—including yours—a little healthier.
A vital source of funding our efforts to improve your health and well-being is the philanthropic support of people like you! The generosity of our donors provides us the opportunity to maintain a hospital that is modern and progressive. Without this community support, many of these services and programs would simply not be possible.
The professionals at ProMedica Toledo Children's Foundation help caring donors establish the charitable venue that best suits their goals. There are many ways you can help: annual giving, planned giving, specific needs, memorial gifts or gifts in honor of a recipient.
As a not-for-profit community hospital, ProMedica Toledo Children's depends heavily on the generosity of our caring donors to fulfill our primary mission. Every gift, no matter how large or small, helps to save lives and create a better community.
You can make a difference! For more information, contact Toledo Children's Foundation.

The Danberry Treasure Chest Auction
Each year, Danberry Realtors raises funds to support an incredible cause—the Danberry Treasure Chest at ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital. Through proceeds from year-round wine sales at The Anderson’s and an annual gala featuring dinner and auctions held in October, The Treasure Chest provides critical emergency assistance to patients and families with extreme circumstances. Many families who have children with serious medical conditions experience extreme financial hardship. Some families are faced with decisions to keep the electricity turned on in their home or buy food for their children. That’s where the Danberry Treasure Chest steps in. Toledo Children’s staff members help patients make requests to access financial support for short-term emergency needs. More than $350,000 has been distributed in support of emergent family needs through the Treasure Chest.
In the Spotlight
Eidi Family Honors Their Father’s Love for Children
Ramy and Faye Eidi recently made a significant gift to ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital Foundation in memory of Mr. Eidi’s father, Mehdi “Danny” Eidi.
“The Eidi’s generosity has allowed ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital to purchase Giraffe Infant Warmers for our newborn intensive care unit,” says Sheila Schwartz, Chief Philanthropic Officer for ProMedica. “We are grateful to be part of sharing Danny Eidi’s legacy by naming a NICU patient care room in his memory.”
As Ramy Eidi explains, the family’s gift to ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital is a fitting tribute to his father who, “just loved children.” The gift also exemplifies another facet of Danny Eidi’s legacy: the importance of charitable giving. “My father was a very generous man and my mother was a volunteer for many non-profit organizations. Growing up, it was embedded in me that giving back was the right thing to do,” says Mr. Eidi, who owns a Sylvania-based property management and investment firm. “My wife and I hope to set a good example for our sons by encouraging them to give what they can to help others.”
Ramy and Faye Eidi live in Sylvania, Ohio with their three sons, Danny, Joey and Sammy ages 8, 6 and 3.

Families and philanthropic purpose
Philanthropy can be a force that unites and focuses a family. At ProMedica, we have helped generations of families fulfill their philanthropic visions. We bring extensive skill, knowledge and hands-on experience to support your family in defining and realizing their unique philanthropic purpose.
Many families face a significant challenge in passing the values of personal commitment, involvement and contribution to younger generations. Philanthropy is a powerful, proven means for integrating wealth and family by bridging generations and uniting family members around common causes and shared concerns. Philanthropy empowers individual family members by offering them significant responsibility for activities and issues that are important to them.
Define your purpose
Philanthropic efforts require focus in order to succeed. Betsy Kelsey, Director ProMedica Planned Giving, offers you personal support and an array of tools to help you and your family assess your goals, values and interests, allowing you to create a philanthropic road map to guide you in developing a more formal statement of purpose, including:
What you want your philanthropy to stand for
The issues, geography and populations you want to affect
How your giving will achieve your goals
