UniHealth Foundation continues to expand its tradition of care, to embrace innovation solutions and to encourage partnerships that benefit the communities we serve.


UniHealth Foundation is an independent private health care foundation established in 1998. We are committed to being a pace-setter in health philanthropy, identifying and supporting innovative activities, while provoking and sustaining changes that positively impact health outcomes.

Our mission is to support and facilitate activities that significantly improve the health and well being of individuals and communities we serve by making grants from two funds:

  • Hospital Fund
    Most UniHealth Foundation grants are made to nonprofits hospitals and other qualified nonprofits for healthcare services and programs provide by, through, or in close cooperation with qualified charitable hospitals in specified service areas in Los Angeles and northern Orange Counties. 
  • General Purpose Fund
    A smaller fund from which charitable expenditures may be distributed to qualified nonprofit organizations not working in close cooperation with charitable hospitals for health-related purposes.


  • Integrity: honesty and adherence to our code of ethics
  • Respect: respect for all persons and commitment to open, reciprocal relationships
  • Transparency: clear, open communication and exchange of information
  • Stewardship: responsible oversight and management of the foundation’s resources
