Foundation/Donations: About the Foundation

On May 9, 2012, members of the Upland Hills Health Foundation celebrated the Foundation’s 5th birthday. Since the Foundation incorporated in April of 2007, over $1,000,000 has been donated by the community to support programs and services. Thank you to everyone who has supported the Foundation.

The Upland Hills Health Foundation, Inc., was established for the sole purpose of supporting the programs and services of Upland Hills Health. To ensure this support would be realized, the volunteer Board Members turned to you, their fellow community members, and asked for your help. Since 2007, community members have contributed over $1,000,000 to the Foundation. This overwhelming show of support has allowed the volunteer Board Members to take action. This action has taken many forms including the Board Members’ ability to support projects and acquire pieces of equipment.

The volunteer Board Members want to say "Thank You!" Together, great things have been accomplished and Upland Hills Health wants to make sure everyone knows the impact felt when many people come together to help others. The Foundation is proud to be able to provide individuals with an opportunity to leave a legacy by ensuring services and programs are available for generations to come. All contributions are greatly appreciated, tax-deductible and acknowledged by the Foundation. Please contact Tammie Richter, Foundation Director, at 930-7169 with any questions. Thank you to everyone who supports the Foundation!
