Offcanvas Section

You can publish whatever you want in the Offcanvas Section. It can be any module or particle.

By default, the available module positions are offcanvas-a and offcanvas-b but you can add as many module positions as you want from the Layout Manager.

You can also add the hidden-phone module class suffix to your modules so they do not appear in the Offcanvas Section when the site is loaded on a mobile device.

The Foundation

Who We Are

RUHS Foundation was established in 1989 as a nonprofit philanthropic organization. For nearly three decades the Foundation has collaborated successfully with donors and stakeholders to support RUHS Medical Center’s role as a public teaching hospital and safety net provider. Our founders were inspired by the medical center’s work with kids, particularly in the area of child abuse and neglect, and over the year that commitment has growth and evolved to include much more. RUHS Foundation is proud to support RUHS Behavioral Health and Public Health agencies and the system’s 11 community-based health clinics with a goal of serving and safeguarding the county’s 2.35 million residents.

Mission Statement

The mission of RUHS Foundation is to foster friends and inspire philanthropic support for the needs of Riverside University Health System.
