You Make a New Day Possible

Philanthropy is more than just something you do. It is part of who you are. That’s what makes philanthropy so powerful and extraordinary, even life-changing. Philanthropy does not simply provide the bricks and mortar, machinery and lights. It turns generosity into action. Action, ignited by passion, transforms a shared vision into reality and creates a lasting legacy. Your gift is more than a donation. You are part of a legacy dedicated to transforming, healing and saving as many lives as we can. More than a partnership, you are family — and our legacies are intertwined. As one OSF family, what we do, you do too. For that, we are immensely grateful. Thank you for saying “yes” to this life-affirming Mission, to extraordinary philanthropy and to knowing that as family, we always will be here for one another.
