WISH is a giving circle formed by a group of local women, working with Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Foundation, to educate, empower and inspire women philanthropists by supporting the health needs of our community through UCHealth programs, partnerships and services provided in Larimer County.
As an affiliate of our foundation, WISH provides members the opportunity to pool their funds, learn about health needs in Larimer County, and collectively decide how their money will be utilized in support of local programs, projects, and services provided by UCHealth, including services provided in partnership with community organizations. Participants of WISH will be actively involved in how their dollars will be spent through an annual review and voting process. One hundred percent of annual membership gifts will be awarded to selected applicants. WISH membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the health and healthcare services of our community.
