How Your Gift Helps
The power of partnership
OHSU's mission is too big for OHSU alone.
Every day the people of Oregon Health & Science University strive toward a profoundly ambitious goal - to improve human health and well being. They collaborate in a circle of connection that is the hallmark of an academic health center.
At the center of the circle are the patients who often become involved with OHSU in dramatic and urgent ways; surrounding them are the clinical experts working to restore or improve health; surrounding them are the research scientists whose discoveries are pioneering better treatments for human disease; and surrounding them are the donors and friends whose support is advancing what's possible and enhancing its meaning.
Without the committed supporters who encircle OHSU, Oregon's only academic health center could neither change so many lives nor change the world. And that is why philanthropy matters.
