Since its inception in 1976, Riverview Health Foundation—a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization—has served Riverview Health in preserving the health of the community through philanthropic efforts and fundraising. Funds raised by Riverview Health Foundation are gifted to Riverview Health for the purposes of purchasing advanced medical equipment and providing much-needed services to patients and their family members.
Riverview Health Foundation has grown exponentially, staying true to its mission to create meaningful charitable giving opportunities in support of Riverview Health. Riverview Health Foundation donors, both new and long-standing, are true partners in changing and saving lives through their charitable giving.
Most recently, gifts made to Riverview Health Foundation have been used to support and expand many Riverview Health service areas, including cardiology, oncology, emergency and surgery.
Riverview Health does not receive taxpayer funding. Through our generous donors, Riverview Health Foundation is able to gift funds to the hospital to help provide a financial resource for critical equipment, projects and services. The continuation of monetary gifts provided to Riverview Health Foundation is critical to the future of Riverview Health and the future of healthcare in Hamilton County.
As a community partner, Riverview Health Foundation is also pleased to provide grant and scholarship opportunities for local high school students.
The Healing Ceiling Art Competition provides students the opportunity to showcase artistic talent by applying to transform a large ceiling tile into a permanent work of art within the hospital. A grand prize winner is awarded an educational scholarship.
In addition, the Riverview Health Foundation Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm Bray Medical Scholarship is awarded to select Hamilton County student applicants wishing to pursue a career in the medical field.
