Rapid Response Fund - Bronson Healthcare

COVID-19 Community Support

How you can support Bronson during this time.

Community support will help Bronson during this moment of need. Every type of gift directly supports our ability to provide care and empowers our frontline staff.

1. Donate to Bronson's COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund

The Bronson Health Foundation Rapid Response Fund has been created to support Bronson's immediate response to the fast-moving global spread of COVID-19, the novel Coronavirus. As the local healthcare system in southwest Michigan, Bronson is delivering on its responsibility to prepare for and respond to this growing threat.


The COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund helps Bronson secure resources to address needs like:

  • Equipment required for testing sites
  • Materials and supplies for frontline care teams
  • Technology to facilitate mobile and remote care
  • Childcare support for frontline staff
  • Food for healthcare workers
  • Increased support for Bronson's Employees in Crisis Fund
  • Additional resources for treatment that may arise during this pandemic
