Corporate Relations

Our Corporate Relations team is dedicated to building strong and mutually beneficial partnerships between your business and OHSU’s people, departments, and programs.

Corporations have given millions in cash and in-kind gifts and interacted with students and faculty across campus, volunteered professional expertise, advanced life-saving research, contributed to increasing workforce development, and improved the ability of OHSU to carry out its important mission.

Take a look at some of our recent successful partnerships and a complete list of our Corporate Catalysts.

If you’re interested in discussing a partnership with OHSU or making an in-kind donation (equipment, facilities, supplies, etc.) please contact Bonnie Schade.


Featured Corporate Catalyst: Nike

In 2004, Nike approached OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation about a fundraising idea that would engage Doernbecher patients while raising money for the hospital. From the initial conversation, the Doernbecher Freestyle was born and has impacted the lives of so many children throughout our region and beyond.
The concept is simple: young Doernbecher patients work with designers at Nike to create limited-edition shoes that are sold at Niketown locations across North America and online at The money generated from the sale of the shoes along with an unveiling event held each year supports the hospital. The popularity of the program continues to grow each year and to date the fundraiser has raised more than $3 million for Doernbecher Children's Hospital.
