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% of every donated dollar goes to the foundation’s philanthropic funds, with no overhead costs or administrative fees.
The hard-won triumphs of the past year would be impossible without your generosity. Our stories herein help demonstrate the power of the gifts you give. Across time, when we work together, we bring great things to fruition for our families, our friends, ourselves and our future.
On Feb. 25, UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation presented a virtual event featuring Dr. Oldemeyer, the physician director of UCHealth’s cardiovascular services in northern Colorado as well as the director of the structural heart program at UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies. View the recording of the virtual presentation.
The desire to help others is strong in northern Colorado. Even as we all experienced one of the more trying years in memory, helping cancer patients in need was foremost in many people’s hearts.
Addressing food insecurity in our community requires help from countless hands and hearts. In 2020, the FMC food pantry served, on average, 391 unique households each month. By the end of the year, the pounds of food distributed per week had increased to 4,000, up from 3,000 in earlier months.
WISH, a program of UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation, is a giving circle whose members pool funds to support the health needs of our community through UCHealth programs, partnerships and services. Awards for its 2021 cycle were made to an array of programs, ranging from healthy hearts education for kids to equipment for rehabilitation therapies to car seat education and distribution, and more.
With Great Western Petroleum's support of our suicide prevention fund, UCHealth will be able to analyze and address some of the risks and prevention tactics through programs, outreach and medical studies.
We are proud of the compassion UCHealth employees show not only for our patients but for each other. UCHealth’s Giving Bikes Program is an employee-to-employee giving program intended to support families in need during the holiday season. The program provides bikes to children of UCHealth northern Colorado employees and this year was able to provide 83 bikes for 38 families.
We want to thank our community for donations to support the COVID-19 response. From helping care for our front-line staff to funding vital research to procuring critical equipment, these funds are having a huge impact on the fight against the virus.
NOCO Winter Wonderland is a fun way to celebrate the holiday season while also helping the community. Gate fees and donations are used to support Colorado Youth Outdoors as well as four other nonprofits in northern Colorado—one of which is UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation. Proceeds from Dec. 23 sales go to the foundation’s Greatest Needs Fund.
During this season of bounty, help those in our community who need it most. Join us at our Days of Giving Nov. 17-19, 2020, in Fort Collins, Greeley or Loveland to donate blood and/or drop off food donations in a safe, socially distanced manner.
