VANCOUVER, Wash. –  We are extremely grateful to our donors for their philanthropic support. These generous gifts make it possible for us to harness the expertise of PeaceHealth’s comprehensive care network for the benefit of all and positively impact and elevate care in each community where PeaceHealth serves.

Thanks to the incredible contributions of PeaceHealth caregivers and community donors in Alaska, Washington and Oregon, the Foundations of PeaceHealth have received three prestigious, national awards for outstanding fundraising performance from the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) for the following achievements:

  • Overall Revenue High Performer
  • Health System High Performer

This collective achievement was announced in AHP’s recently released 2023 Report on Giving. In compiling this report, AHP assessed the fundraising effectiveness of healthcare organizations nationwide.

AHP’s recognition underscores PeaceHealth’s commitment to elevating care through philanthropy in every community our integrated healthcare system serves in Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
