CMH Foundation

Columbia Memorial Hospital has offered excellence in health care for nearly 150 years. Your support for the CMH Foundation ensures that we can continue to offer the highest quality of care to the thousands of community members who entrust us with their health every year.

As a not-for-profit hospital, CMH relies on financial support from our community. Your gifts fund new, innovative technologies and programs, expanding our health services to meet the growing health care needs in our region and supporting our team of health care providers and caregivers.

From Sept. 21-22, 2022, CMH-OHSU Health Primary Care Clinic - Astoria physician Dr. Aaron Brown cycled 180 miles across England. That's quite a distance in 24 hours!

Dr. Brown completed the bike ride with his friend, Gary. Together, they raised money for hospice with their cycling effort. Dr. Brown raised a total of $7,584 for CMH's Lower Columbia Hospice.

Your support makes a difference

Because 100% of donations go directly toward sustaining and improving CMH's health care programs and services, your gift to the Foundation has the potential to directly help your Clatsop County community. Your help can be life-changing for the many patients and families who are treated at CMH each year.

Your donations also help us meet our goals of sustainability and legacy. Gifts made to the Foundation support CMH's work now and in the future, guaranteeing access to excellent care for generations of patients to come.

Ways you can support CMH

At the CMH Foundation, we know that making a gift can be a very personal decision. We work with all our donors to understand their priorities and aspirations. This way, we can ensure that every gift has the most meaningful impact for both our community and our philanthropic partners.

If you make an unrestricted gift, your donation goes where it is most needed. Often, this means funding to support our innovative facilities and services or our expert medical staff. We also raise funds for specific health care services, like hospice care, or specific groups of people, including those undergoing cancer treatment or caregivers working with CMH patients. Or you might give a gift to honor a health care provider or caregiver who made a difference for you or a family member.

Whatever your priorities are when making a donation to CMH, the Foundation will work with you to ensure that your gift has the greatest impact possible.
