Philanthropic partnerships drive progress in FY12

It's been another remarkable year. During the period that ended on June 30, 2012, nearly 15,000 donors contributed just shy of $100 million in gifts and pledges to OHSU and Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

Each year, donors make extraordinary things possible – from world-leading scientific discoveries to exceptional patient care. This year our philanthropic supporters accelerated OHSU progress toward:

  • Halting the rampant rise in chronic illness caused by unhealthy eating
  • Ending HIV/AIDs around the world by advancing promising vaccine research
  • Improving our ability to prevent and treat complex diseases
  • Transforming dental education across the region with a state-of-the art dental school facility
  • Bringing OHSU and Doernbecher expertise to more children and families across the Northwest

Such generous support reflects the very best of this institution: the enduring power of our missions, the exceptional work of faculty and staff, and the inspiring commitment of our friends. On behalf of OHSU, I extend profound gratitude to you for your ongoing support and confidence.
