We work with grateful patients and families, doctors, nurses, employees and community leaders to raise funds to improve healthcare for our community through programs and services at El Camino Health.
The donations we receive enable El Camino Health to provide an exceptional level of care — care that’s not always covered by fees and reimbursements. They support investment in new technology, seed innovative programs that meet emerging needs and provide assistance for patients who could use an extra hand. In addition, philanthropic support helps El Camino Health create an atmosphere of advancement and learning for doctors, nurses and staff, and offers fulfilling opportunities for donors and volunteers — all of which enhance patient care.
Whether you make an outright gift, remember the Foundation in your estate plan, or support one of our events, your generosity makes a healthy difference for patients and families in our community.
Thinking Bold: Support Our Strategic Fundraising Initiatives
By making a gift to the Foundation, you can be a partner and help fulfill critical needs at El Camino Health. Current fundraising initiatives focus on cancer care, heart and vascular care, stroke, mental health and addiction services, clinical research, nursing excellence and targeted health programs for our diverse community.
Fulfilling the Promise: Mental Health and Addiction Services
A quarter of all adults and a fifth of teens age 13 to 18 experience a serious mental health condition in a given year. More than 90,000 people a year die from alcohol use disorders alone. There aren’t enough resources to meet the need for treatment services. El Camino Health has reaffirmed its commitment to provide expert, compassionate mental health and addiction care by building a new inpatient facility on the Mountain View campus and expanding targeted outpatient treatment programs that meet observed needs in our community. With your help, we can give more members of our community a better chance to achieve their promise, as we fulfill ours. For more information, please send us an email or call us at 650-940-7154.
One of every two Americans will be touched by cancer in their lifetimes. Many of us have a colleague, friend, neighbor or loved one who has faced this difficult disease. Donations help our Cancer Center provide the level of care typically found at academic medical centers, delivered with the compassionate, personalized approach you expect from a community hospital. To learn about naming opportunities at the Cancer Center and other ways you can advance cancer care at El Camino Health, please send us an email or call us at 650-940-7154.
South Asian Heart Center
People of South Asian descent have a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes compared with the general population — two to four times higher. Conventional medical practice doesn’t take into account their special risk factors. The South Asian Heart Center’s proven and culturally tailored program includes advanced screening to uncover the hidden risks and lifestyle counseling to mitigate them through meditation, exercise, diet and sleep. Your donation will help the center expand so it can serve more people. For more information, please send us an email or call us at 650-940-7154.
Chinese Health Initiative
Chinese Health Initiative at El Camino Health is the leading culturally sensitive health resource for the Chinese community in Silicon Valley. El Camino Hospital established the Chinese Health Initiative in 2010 to better serve this population’s distinct healthcare needs. In collaboration with Chinese professional, community and healthcare organizations, the Chinese Health Initiative conducts free screenings for and educational programs about hepatitis B, liver cancer, hypertension, stroke, diabetes and other diseases that are taking a disproportionate toll on the community. The Chinese Health Initiative grows along with the community it serves, but it needs your philanthropic partnership in order to do so. For more information, please send us an email or call us at 650-940-7154.
