UCHealth 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. Our foundation helps provide value-added services not covered by insurance.

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.

Private donations from community members enable us to bridge gaps in services, accelerate advances in health care, and help thankful patients and families express gratitude. Many critically important services offered to UCHealth patients and families in northern Colorado would not exist without private donations made through the foundation.

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