The Ascension Michigan Community Benefit and Investment Program (“CBI Program”) is a new program to centrally receive, review and process community investment requests submitted by external community partners. The CBI Program seeks to ensure Ascension Michigan hospitals, Ascension Medical Group Michigan and Ascension Michigan foundations continue to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to them by intentionally and strategically aligning external community investments with local (prioritized) community needs, as well as strategic and organizational priorities.
As a Ministry of the Catholic Church, Ascension Michigan hospitals have a well-documented tradition of caring for those most in need. Our Mission, Vision and Values provide a strong framework for the work we do in meeting the needs of the communities in which we serve and helping groups that have been historically marginalized or made vulnerable. Investing in and sponsoring local community programs is just one of the ways we demonstrate our commitment.
The following beliefs shape our philosophy:
- We believe groups that have been historically marginalized or made vulnerable have a moral priority for services;
- We believe everyone has a responsibility to contribute, and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all; and
- We believe in pursuing solutions that allow individuals and communities to achieve human and spiritual flourishing to better allow everyone to grow and achieve fulfillment in community.
