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.
On Oct. 29, UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation presented a virtual event featuring Dr. Steven Schuster, medical director of oncology clinical research at the UCHealth Cancer Care and Hematology Clinic - Harmony Campus.
There is now more time to make the most of your donation to our Cancer Patient Assistance Fund with a match from Bank of Colorado. Through the end of the year, Bank of Colorado will match all donations to the assistance fund, up to $8,000.
Improving health in our community is a compelling reason to support the foundation’s mission of helping advance health care in northern Colorado. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act offers additional incentives for charitable giving, in effect through Dec. 31, 2020.
A grant from your donor advised fund (DAF) will help to support health care in northern Colorado during these challenging times. A DAF, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact, or you can use your fund as a tool for ongoing and future charitable gifts.
Improvements are underway at the UCHealth Harmony Campus, where we’re expanding our cancer center to provide our patients more innovative treatment.
Donor contributions helped to build the cancer center, which opened its doors in 2014. Philanthropy continues to support cancer research and treatment as well as to provide financial assistance for cancer patients in need.
Over the past year, grateful patients in northern Colorado honored 55 of our health care heroes and four hospital units as Guardian Angels. A Guardian Angel is someone a patient recognized for making a difference in their treatment: a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, receptionist, anyone who had a meaningful impact on their care.
As the economic effects of COVID-19 continue, many people struggle to afford groceries. The UCHealth Family Medicine Center (FMC) food pantry, which partners with Food Bank for Larimer County, helps provide fresh food to those suffering food insecurity.
Each year, donor generosity enables UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation to award scholarships to UCHealth northern Colorado employees interested in furthering career-related skills. For our 2020–21 scholarship cycle, $85,000 was awarded to 47 recipients.
The gift, made through UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation, will support testing costs for underinsured people and help with ongoing patient needs associated with pandemic.
The generosity of private donors and community business partners, as well as many of our fellow employees, has enabled us to award more than $390,000 in scholarships to 334 UCHealth employees since 2010.
