In July 2017, The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation launched Your Health, Our Mission: Caring for Our Families Together fundraising campaign in support of UM Upper Chesapeake Health’s community health care mission.
Since the launch of the campaign, more than $15 million has been raised in support of world-class health care programs and services provided for our neighbors and families during their time of need.
Philanthropy continues to support UM Upper Chesapeake Health’s ability to invest in technology and to enhance local service lines including Cancer LifeNet and the Senator Bob Hooper House.
In 2019, generous gifts from donors and community partners helped bring The Klein Family Harford Crisis Center to fruition. As the need for immediate access to mental health and addiction care remains great, philanthropy continues to allow our organization the opportunity to provide the very best care, at the right time, and in the right setting.
By supporting The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation with your gifts of time, talent, or treasure, you are making a significant difference right here in our community.
This is friends and neighbors helping friends and neighbors.
Two Goals, One Health Care Mission
for Our Community
Strengthen Our Services through
Integrated Programs and Technology
As part of the Kaufman Cancer Center, Cancer LifeNet connects patients with experts, support teams, and communities of survivors to create a holistic approach to treatment and care for patients and families who need it.
Senator Bob Hooper House
At the Hooper House, professionals with specialized expertise serve both residents and their families with a coordinated program of hospice care and support services, helping them through issues with end-of-life care.
Innovation & Technology
Establishing a Technology and Innovation Fund at UM UCH will ensure that we have state of the art technology, equipment, and tools to provide the best local programs to patients and families when they need it.
Reshape Behavioral Health Care
in Harford County
The Klein Family Harford Crisis Center
Through the The Klein Family Harford Crisis Center, UM UCH and its partners will move our community from a current state that lacks access to a future state of coordinated care which will make a difference, much like Cancer LifeNet does for so many.
Together we will pave the way for a
strong and healthy community.
