Supporting Health & Wellbeing in the Cedar Valley

Making the Cedar Valley a Better Place to Live

The Otto Schoitz Foundation was founded in 2016 to assist local organizations looking to make the Cedar Valley a better place to live, work and raise a family.  Mr. 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 grew a hundredfold.  In 2016, upon the hospital's ownership transfer, this independent foundation was endowed to improve the health and wellbeing of its community.
