Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Though the COVID pandemic has surely challenged Overlook Medical Center, it has also affirmed our resolve to improve the health of every person we serve, regardless of one’s ability to pay. We will continue to support the medical innovation and compassionate care that our patients and their families deserve, while ensuring the safety and dignity of all who enter our doors. Robust fundraising will provide our health care heroes with the facility and tools they need to deliver an unrivaled patient experience whatever challenges the future may hold.

Overlook’s comprehensive “Overlook Ahead” campaign has been endorsed by our parent organization, with Atlantic Health System pledging to match all gifts for construction and new equipment on a dollar-for-dollar basis. Our campaign cabinet includes foundation trustees, major donors, physicians, and community members with a passion for Overlook and a commitment to getting the job done.

Our current project is similar in scope to a 2005-2011 fundraising campaign that raised $110.1 million to create new cancer and caregivers centers, palliative care and integrative medicine programs, and more to enhance our ability to be caring providers. We continually steward past and current donors, while engaging new ones through events, appeals, annual reports, and personal interactions.

To date, we have raised some $44.6 million, including matching challenges. While we are currently focused on meeting the unanticipated yet critical needs presented by the current pandemic, we hope to return to our previously planned solicitations of individuals and organizations as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so.
