Our Mission

At the OHSU Foundation, we advance OHSU’s mission by igniting the power of philanthropy.

What we do

The OHSU Foundation exists to secure private philanthropic support to advance OHSU’s vital missions, and to invest and manage gifts responsibly to honor donors’ wishes. Thousands of donors contribute millions of dollars in financial support to OHSU and OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital every year.

As the state of Oregon’s only health and research university, OHSU brings together patient care, education, and research – three missions that inspire philanthropy locally and nationally.

“I’m motivated by the student, patient, and donor stories on the foundation’s story hub. Being able to see the impact OHSUF has on the community while residing all the way in Arizona helps me feel connected.” – Flor Chavez, Prospect Management Analyst

“At two alumni reunions, I was fortunate enough to be present as classmates spoke about their respective class scholarships. The amazing, energizing and exciting part was that after receiving updates on the scholarship progress, both classes focused their attention on how they could do more. It was quite a wonderful and energizing moment to witness and a great reminder on our alumni’s impact on current students!” – Hayden Rahn, Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement

“Not only do I get to learn something new every day, but I also get to help research and science that is literally making the world a better place. How cool is that? I also love working with the smart, amazing folks at the Foundation, all of whom are so supportive, collaborative, and committed to the mission of OHSU.” – Shane, Associate Director of Foundation Relations
