With an eye on the future of philanthropy in South Jersey, Inspira Health announced the recent merger of its Cumberland/Salem and Gloucester County fundraising arms. The new entity, Inspira Health Foundation, will continue the critical work of its predecessors, raising money and awareness in support of Inspira Health’s crucial programs, patient services, cutting-edge technology and facility enhancements that impact the health and well-being of South Jersey residents.
“The merger of Inspira Health Foundation Cumberland/Salem and Inspira Health Foundation Gloucester County represents the next generation of health care philanthropy for our entire region,” said Penny Sager-Rossi, Inspira Health Foundation Co-Chair. “Giving can still be designated to the area in which a donor lives, but the merger enables the Foundation to strategically align donor interests with priorities across the entire Inspira service area.”
“As Inspira grows across the region, it is invaluable for us to have dedicated and supportive ambassadors,” said John DiAngelo, Inspira Health president and CEO. “The impact made by philanthropy is real and tangible, and this united Foundation will continue to serve a significant and necessary role for our patients.”
The 2020 slate of officers includes:
• Robin Love, D.V.M., and Penny Sager-Rossi, Foundation Board Co-Chairs
• Robert Odorizzi, Vice Chair
• Christopher Eastlack, Secretary
• Genevieve Witt, Treasurer
Board members are asked to work together with the communities served by Inspira Health to support the continued delivery of quality health care. In August, Inspira Foundation added three new members to its Board of Trustees. Joining the board were Kevin R. Gibala, Michael J. Husband and Ronald P. Portadin, whom were each elected to three-year terms.
Gibala, of Alloway Township, is the Vice President, Commercial Relationship Manager for TD Bank, where he manages commercial loan and deposit relationships in southern New Jersey.
Husband, of Bridgeton, is the co-owner of Eaglelon Consulting, where he supports Regulatory Strategy and Business Development for medical devices, diagnostics, combination products and microbiome development.
Portadin, of Linwood, is a Project Architect and partner for MMPF Architects where he is engaged in projects ranging in scale and scope from industrial and commercial buildings to a wide array of major institutional and health care facilities.
The merger follows the Foundation’s highly successful “Invest. Impact. Inspire.” capital campaign that raised more than $23 million.
