Last year in our first ever annual report we were proud to share that RUHS Foundation, through the generosity of our donors and volunteers, delivered more than $2 million in funding for equipment and programs for Riverside University Health System. This year, that amount rose to more than $2.6 million and truly demonstrates that we are set on a course of continued growth in our mission. That is why we are here – to foster friends and philanthropy for our community! Life-saving programs and equipment continue to improve services for our patients, and we are honored to be part of this work with your partnership.
RUHS Foundation has been inspired by the outpouring from our community. We are happy to help coordinate support in any way that the donor or volunteer feels led.
Thank you for your interest in donating medical equipment and non-medical supplies. We are accepting Medical Supplies at BOTH RUHS Medical Center and the County of Riverside drop off location (address below). We are accepting Non-Medical Supplies at the County of Riverside drop off location as well.
