Why Giving Matters

The goal of the foundation is to help to provide the extra margin of excellence in health care through philanthropic resources for the hospital and its’ community-based health programs, clinics and other services in the San Fernando Valley.

Through our fundraising efforts we have helped to establish the James I. Farr Tower, The Connie and Leon Gillaspie Institute for Living, The Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center, The Carole Pump Women’s Center, the Harold and Carole Pump Department of Radiation Oncology, Richie Pediatric Trauma Center and Center for Assault Treatment Services (CATS).

Funds are derived from special events, including an annual golf tournament and black tie gala dinner. Volunteer guilds, including the Golden Hour Guild, which supports Emergency/Trauma Services and the Northridge Hospital Medical Center Auxiliary also raise funds on behalf of the medical center.

Planting the Roots for Better Health Care...

Like a garden, a hospital needs constant care. It is critical to keep up-to-date with the most advanced treatment modalities in order for the “hospital’s garden” to prosper and grow.

Through the continued involvement of the community, the Northridge Hospital Foundation looks forward to tomorrow and offers our many contributors our heartfelt thanks.
