Patient Giving

Dan Wieden and daughter LauraMany patients and their families choose to donate to express gratitude for exceptional care. Others invest to accelerate the quest for new therapies. Others give to recognize individuals navigating a journey through illness or injury – or to honor the memory of a loved one whose journey has ended.

Gifts from patients and families carry profound meaning when they are the result of personal experiences. Gifts to areas of greatest need are particularly important because they allow leaders to target contributions where they can have the most significant and immediate impact.

For gifts in honor or memory of someone special, notice of your gift can be sent to designated individuals anywhere in the world.

Every gift helps advance hope and healing by extending to others the unique strengths of Oregon Health & Science University.

Stories of Hope

“When I was diagnosed with throat cancer, there was a chance I wouldn’t be able to sing again. But my doctor and his team went to great lengths to protect my vocal cords. Only three months after my last radiation treatment, I came back to OHSU with my a capella quartet to sing for that team. Years later, I’m still singing the praises of OHSU!"

"After suffering for over 30 years from severe chronic back pain, I'm now doing 12-mile hikes on Mt. Hood and running six miles five days a week. I am so grateful to OHSU for what they've given me."
- Sue Percy
