About Us: The Northwest Hospital Foundation

The Northwest Hospital Foundation exists for one purpose:

To support UPMC Northwest in its mission to provide high-quality health care for area residents.

The foundation is funded exclusively by gifts from individuals and organizations to advance health care in our community. Northwest Hospital Foundation receives and allocates gifts exclusively in support of UPMC Northwest, so 100% of every gift you give stays in our area and benefits only UPMC Northwest.

Established in 1982, the Northwest Hospital Foundation celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2017.


Mission Statement:

At Northwest Hospital Foundation, our mission is to secure and allocate resources for funding projects exclusively in support of UPMC Northwest, thereby helping area residents find hope, healing and access to high quality healthcare.


Philanthropic Philosophy:

Our philanthropic philosophy is to thoughtfully enhance the health care of our community by making financial resources available to UPMC Northwest in its mission to deliver high-quality services to the residents of the region. We will fund programs and activities that go above and beyond what an established health care system would generally be expected to provide.
