Support the Foundation

How donations help

Thanks to generous support from organizations and individuals, we can invest in serving others by ensuring:

  • Access to quality care, including for those who are uninsured or under-insured
  • Best-in-class programs and training, and innovation in research
  • A nurturing, healing environment for treatment services and lasting recovery

What sets us apart

An unmatched legacy

Throughout our 100-plus-year history, Rosecrance has been a source of hope and strength to those we serve. The Rosecrance Foundation provides hope for those in need of treatment by reducing financial barriers to care.

Quality care

Rosecrance has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 1984. The Joint Commission accreditation survey is the highest possible standard for behavioral health treatment centers.

Innovative community programs

The Foundation supports specialty programs aimed at addressing the specific needs of veterans, adolescents, mothers and their children, first responders, and others when they are most in need. It provides support and resources to promote lasting recovery.

Donor impact

Following previous treatment, Rob found a group cheering him on for a successful outcome: “[Rosecrance] said they wanted to help me and appointed a diverse and supportive team of family, therapists, and colleagues around me – ‘Team Rob.’ Team Rob is part of Rosecrance, and Rosecrance helped me change my life.”


Rob’s story demonstrates the life-changing impact of quality care provided by Rosecrance. Gifts from our donors make treatment possible for hundreds of individuals every year, ensuring access to evidenced-based care that changes and saves lives.
