ONWARD and Upward

Our audacious goal: $2 billion over six years to transform science and redefine health care. And we're nearly there — thanks to you.

Our ONWARD OHSU campaign began in 2014 and has stirred the passions of thousands of donors who care deeply about OHSU and Doernbecher Children's Hospital's key mission areas of education, research and clinical care.

Our shared goal is to make discoveries faster, save more lives and give hope to millions around the world.
