foundation and corporate giving
We provide a strategic and coordinated approach to building relationships with institutions whose funding initiatives align with University Hospital’s priorities in patient care, research, education, and community health. 

We work closely with hospital leadership, physicians, and staff to: 

  • Connect prospective donors and grant-makers with funding opportunities

  • Form mutually beneficial partnerships with foundation and corporate funding agencies

  • Provide strategic guidance and assistance in applying for philanthropic support

  • Assist with the development of grant proposals, budgets, and reports and facilitate request submissions

  • Identify and pursue foundation and corporate funding opportunities, including publicized Requests for Proposals and non-publicized funding opportunities

  • Steward relationships with current and prospective foundation and corporate supporters


Giving Opportunities

Some of the biggest impacts across University Hospital have come from the generous support and strategic partnership of foundations and corporate benefactors, and private donors in areas of:

  • Program support

  • Capital improvements

  • Equipment
