Foundation Giving

The generosity of City of Hope’s foundation partners has played an important role in helping the institution transform health care throughout Southern California, nationally and internationally. Our collaboration with our foundation partners has resulted in lifesaving patient care, important advances in groundbreaking research, exceptional training for nurses, physicians and scientists, and community outreach to help vulnerable populations.

Foundation Relations partners with private and corporate foundations to further the philanthropic goals of City of Hope and meet the special needs of each donor. City of Hope welcomes unrestricted gifts, designated grants and endowment gifts.
