About Us

The UVA Health Foundation is united by a deep commitment to supporting UVA Health’s mission of enhancing patient care, medical and nursing education, research, and community outreach through philanthropy. Created in 2002, the Foundation's priorities include:

  • Resource development
  • Financial stewardship
  • Advocacy among donor constituencies

We are organized into teams of front-line fundraisers and staff who focus on medical alumni, nursing alumni, cancer programs, UVA Children’s, and healthcare philanthropy (grateful patient giving).  We also have dedicated communications and advancement services teams to help support our fundraising efforts. In addition, we partner closely with the Office of University Advancement, which provides significant central services for the broader University development community.

Donors and volunteer leaders are vital partners in helping ensure the growth and future success of our patient care, education and research programs. Gifts the Foundation receives are dispensed according to donors' wishes and UVA Health's priorities. Deposits to the Foundation are appropriately invested and stewarded according to the University's policy for affiliated foundations. Donors to the Foundation are recognized through University and school giving societies.
