Peter O. Kohler Fund for OHSU Excellence

Peter Kohler Fund

Supporting strategic initiatives to sustain and enhance a great institution


During his 18-year presidency of OHSU, Peter Kohler, M.D., has led the institution to world-class excellence. His vision will continue to inspire the OHSU community for years to come. To honor this legacy, OHSU and the OHSU Foundation have together created a fund for excellence in his name.


Supporting the Kohler Fund


The Peter O. Kohler Fund for OHSU Excellence was established to:

  • Provide a conduit for unrestricted gifts to OHSU – gifts that give the institution the flexibility to seize emerging opportunities and provide support when and where it’s most needed.
  • Provide a meaningful way for friends and admirers, including faculty and staff, to make a gift in Dr. Kohler’s honor and extend his legacy through philanthropy.
  • Provide the new OHSU president with a powerful tool for advancing the university’s objectives.
  • Create a lasting tribute to Dr. Kohler and his many contributions to OHSU and Oregon.
