Fundraising Impact Areas

The Because of You campaign will strive to make a profound and indelible impact in the following areas:

Caring for our Children

Children are our future, and their health and well-being are essential to the overall health of our community.

Because of You campaign will build on the strength of the most trusted name in pediatric care – UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s – by expanding access to primary and specialty care, leading pediatric research and collaborating with community partners to best serve children and families.


Leading Discovery and Innovation

As an academically anchored health system, UH pushes the boundaries of medicine through research and innovation, generating new knowledge, discovering new treatments and cures, and developing leading-edge procedures, devices and techniques.

For the benefit of patients here and around the world, the Because of You campaign will invest in the full continuum of medical discovery – from bench to bedside research at UH to accelerating the best science into new medicines through the global power of Harrington Discovery Institute.

Transforming Cancer Care

As the second leading cause of death worldwide, cancer impacts the lives of patients and their families in unimaginable ways. But when they need us most, patients turn to UH Seidman Cancer Center.

Because of You campaign will help to meet patients where they are in their cancer journey, driving innovation and advancements in personalized care and furthering our investments in ground-breaking treatments like immunotherapy.


Investing in our Community

At UH, we are driven to provide compassionate care and ensure everyone in our community has a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health. 

Because of You campaign will help UH lead the charge to improve maternal and child health, community wellness and economic opportunity. And we will partner with local organizations and civic leaders to address the socioeconomic factors and health disparities impacting health across our region.
