Together We Make a Difference

For nearly 40 years, Northwest Hospital Foundation has been promoting community care as it supports high-quality health care.

We know that life can change in an instant. Gifts to the Foundation help restore quality of life to a range of people dealing with medical issues: those who need medication or transportation to a chemotherapy appointment, former patients who require help with medical debt, and sometimes, many who just want to see tomorrow.

Whether a Foundation gift is a memorial, money raised from a community fundraiser, a bequest, or a direct donation, people are healed because of our community’s generosity. We fund programs and activities that go above and beyond what an established health care system would be expected to provide.

Northwest Hospital Foundation receives and allocates gifts exclusively in support of UPMC Northwest, so 100% of every gift stays in our area.

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.

Gifts made to Northwest Hospital Foundation are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).  As a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization, Northwest Hospital Foundation records all gifts to UPMC Northwest and its tax exempt affiliates, designates and oversees their use, and provides gift receipts and recognition to donors.
