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 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.
The foundation has three events for you to look forward to this year. Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us as we raise funds to support our hospitals and clinics in the delivery and advancement of world-class health care in northern Colorado.
We are grateful to the American Cancer Society for grants that enable us to help cancer patients facing transportation barriers get to and from cancer-related treatment appointments.
We appreciate the generosity and community spirit of The Human Bean of Northern Colorado and the Colorado Eagles. The two are partnering to raise funds for our Oncology Patient Assistance Fund, which helps patients in need pay for basic expenses health insurance does not cover, from rent or mortgage to groceries and gas, and more.
On March 29, the WISH giving circle is hosting a gathering to celebrate its 10 years of giving, announce the 2023 awards, and recruit new members. WISH, a program of UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation, was formed by a group of local women to support the health needs of our community through UCHealth programs, projects, and services provided in Larimer and Weld counties. More than a half million dollars in WISH awards have been distributed since the program’s founding in 2013.
UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation created the Circle of Caring to honor donors who have made a legacy commitment to the foundation. Circle of Caring donors leave their imprint through thoughtful, planned gifts from their estate. The foundation recently welcomed Elizabeth and Michael Hogan into the Circle of Caring.
No birth ever goes as planned, but an extended stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can further complicate life. At the UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital NICU, when families can’t be with their babies, cameras, which were purchased with philanthropic dollars, strengthen bonds.
