The Campaign


The toughest challenges in medicine don’t hit pause. So at OHSU, neither do we.

The OHSU Foundation launched the second phase of the ONWARD campaign in October 2015, following the successful conclusion to the Knight Cancer Challenge which began in July 2013. The campaign will raise more than $2 billion for OHSU by 2020 to transform human health. We’re already more than halfway to our goal thanks to the $1 billion raised during the Challenge, and the completed fundraising of the Gary & Christine Rood Family Pavilion, which will provide out-of-town families in crisis a place to stay while receiving specialized care at OHSU.

Philanthropic investment will support medical research and such visions as defeating cancer and ending preventable blindness. It will support patient care, like the exceptional care that Doernbecher Children’s Hospital provides to all families. And it will fund emerging opportunities, such as expanding OHSU's rural and global presence.

Our top philanthropic opportunities are:

  • Cancer
  • Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
  • Cardiovascular Research
  • Neuroscience Research
  • Casey Eye Institute
  • Education


Your support will help fuel our research and work — so we can make discoveries faster, save more lives and give hope to millions.
