Revolutionizing Health Care and Health Care Philanthropy: The Genesis Approach

Genesis Philanthropy exists to help individuals and families living and working in the Genesis Health System service area throughout Eastern Iowa and Western Ilinois.

Heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases have a devastating effect on families and account for a majority of U.S. healthcare spending today. These costly diseases can be prevented and cured! Genesis Philanthropy is a non-profit organization dedicated to prevention and wellness for the region. Through innovation and strategic funding, Genesis Philanthropy is contributing to the health and longevity of those living in the bi-state region.

This bi-state region includes the following counties: (Iowa) Cedar, Clinton, Des Moines, Henry, Jackson, Lee, Louisa, Scott and Muscatine; and (Illinois) Carroll, Henderson, Henry, Knox, Mercer, Rock Island, Warren, and Whiteside.

To reach into these communities and give people a chance to live longer, healthier lives is the role of Genesis Philanthropy, the vision of our Board volunteers, the dream of our donors, and the work of Affiliate Foundations and community Partners.
