Supporting Health & Wellbeing in the Cedar Valley

Making the Cedar Valley a Better Place to Live

The Otto Schoitz Foundation was founded in 2016 as a way to help give back to local organizations looking to make the Cedar Valley a better place to live, work and raise a family. Otto Schoitz donated $500,000 that helped open the Charlotte Lee Schoitz Memorial Hospital in 1951. Through a partnership with Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, that amount has grown by a hundredfold. This new, independent foundation has an endowment of $50 million to carry out its mission of improving the health and wellbeing of the community.
