Northern Colorado Foundation

We improve lives

Our not-for-profit hospitals focus on investing resources to improve the lives of our families, friends and neighbors in northern Colorado. 

Through the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation donors, as well as through public grant funding,  UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation provides funding to support innovative research and education, patient financial assistance, community health programs, and enhancements to patient care. We also provide value-added services that are not covered by insurance.

Private donations from community members enable us to bridge gaps in services and accelerate advances in health care. Many critically important services offered to UCHealth patients and families in northern Colorado would not exist without private donations made through the foundation. Donations also help thankful patients and families express gratitude—a powerful part of the healing journey for many people.

100% of every donated dollar goes to the foundation’s philanthropic funds, with no overhead costs or administrative fees.

UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital receives seven-figure bequest from Pedersen Toyota founder to support children’s services

Through a bequest to UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation, Gerald Pedersen capped off a decades-long legacy of donating to health in northern Colorado. Designated for children’s hospital services, the gift will support the new state-of-the-art, five-bed pediatrics unit at UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital (PVH). His son, Mark Pedersen, presented the foundation with his father’s legacy gift.


State grant to fund the purchase of additional radios used in hospital emergencies

UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation was awarded a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that will provide for additional, two-way radios for two UCHealth hospitals. Existing communication systems at UCHealth Greeley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies will be expanded to widen the number of staff who have access to handheld radio devices while at work.


Philanthropy paves the way: Empowering local cancer patients with accessible treatment closer to home

Thanks to philanthropic dollars, more local cancer patients can receive their treatments close to home. In the three-plus years since the gynecologic oncology (GYN-ONC) program’s launch in northern Colorado, patient volumes have increased, and a need for additional radiation equipment arose. Through donor generosity, the radiation oncology department was able to purchase equipment that helps meet the increased patient volume at our Harmony Campus cancer center.


Local emergency responders receive grant to enhance tactical-medical integration skills

The funding from the Northeast Colorado Region Healthcare Coalition (NERHCC) helped deliver a four-day course held at the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and at nearby simulation grounds. Emergency medical personnel underwent training and simulations to provide medical support in dangerous situations such as SWAT calls, search-and-rescue calls, dive rescue calls, and wildfires.
