OHSU has designated two independent nonprofit foundations — the Oregon Health & Science University Foundation and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. The foundations exist 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 every year.
This broad range of support places OHSU among Oregon’s top beneficiaries of private philanthropy. And it makes the OHSU Foundation, with more than $1.5 billion in assets, one of the largest public university foundations in the Northwest.
