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.
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.
We are deeply thankful for the support of the Ptarmigan Ladies Golf Association and Houska Automotive. Because of their generosity and the fundraisers they foster, hundreds of patients and their families experiencing a cancer diagnosis or food insecurity can breathe a little easier.
“Spinning babies” might sound like a video game, but in reality it’s an inventive, proactive approach to creating an easier birth. Thanks to donor generosity, the Spinning Babies program, along with some new technology and items that enhance care for babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), are available at our northern Colorado hospitals.
The generosity of private donors and community business partners, as well as many of our employees, contributed to a total of $69,000 in awards to 50 employees. Congratulations to these individuals.
The foundation has three events for you to look forward to in 2023: Spring Benefit and two golf tournaments. We’ll provide more details after the first of the year. In the meantime, please save these dates.
UCHealth Greeley Hospital just marked its first birthday after caring for thousands of patients and playing a key role in the fight against COVID-19 in one of the hardest-hit counties in the state. “This was an exciting and yet challenging year that helped us build the foundation of Greeley Hospital,” said Marilyn Schock, president of the hospital. “The community will be depending on us for this excellent care for years to come. I am so proud of the work our team has done and all of the lives they’ve touched.”
David Crum is pleased to join UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation as our senior director of development. In this role, he will direct the foundation’s strategic, growth and operational objectives. Crum joined the foundation team on Sept. 6.
Giving satisfies a unique human need to be part of something larger than ourselves. Giving to UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation fosters a strong, healthy community for our families, friends and neighbors. There are as many reasons for giving as there are people in the world. A few of our donors share their motivation for donating to invest in the health of our community.
The foundation congratulates the Poudre Valley Hospital orthopedics unit and environmental services teams. Through our Grateful Patient Program, a patient made a donation in their honor.
