Golf classic raises $35K to advance health care
We were thrilled to host the Northern Colorado Golf Classic this year after a two-year hiatus. The May 16 event netted over $35,000 for UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation’s Greatest Need Fund. This fund is a flexible resource that helps fuel UCHealth’s continuous pursuit of medical excellence—empowering patients, strengthening communities and creating a healthier world.
Passionate about investing in your community’s health?
It’s not only possible, it’s easy to do with a beneficiary designation. Just name UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation as a beneficiary to receive a percentage of your assets such as retirement plans and life insurance policies after you’re gone. You simply fill out a beneficiary form that is entirely separate from your will. In fact, many of our legacy donors who have identified UCHealth Northern Colorado Foundation as a beneficiary do not have a will.
