Foundation | El Camino Hospital



El Camino Hospital Foundation partners with you to advance healthcare through philanthropy. 

We work with grateful patients and families, doctors, nurses, employees and community leaders to raise money to meet the health needs of the communities served by our Mountain View and Los Gatos campuses.

These funds enable El Camino Hospital to provide an exceptional level of care — care that’s not always covered by fees and reimbursements. Whether it’s raising funds for new technology or programs that focus on the needs of underserved or at-risk populations, the Foundation is dedicated to advancing health in our community. In addition, philanthropic support allows the hospital to create an atmosphere of advancement and learning for doctors, nurses and staff, and offers fulfilling opportunities for donors and volunteers — all of which enhance patient care.

Whether you support us with a charitable gift or participate in one of our events, your generosity makes a difference in the health, well-being and vitality of so many.

Support Our Strategic Fundraising Initiatives

By making a gift to the Foundation, you can be a partner and help fulfill critical needs at El Camino Hospital. Current initiatives focus on new work in cancer care, mental health services and heart disease prevention.

Cancer Care

One of every 2 Americans will be touched by cancer in their lifetimes. All of us have a colleague, friend, neighbor or loved one who has faced this difficult disease. Donations help El Camino Hospital provide the level of care typically found at academic medical centers, delivered with the compassionate, personalized approach you expect from a community hospital. To learn about naming opportunities at the Cancer Center and other ways you can advance cancer care at El Camino Hospital, please send us an email or call us at 650-962-4634.

Fulfilling the Promise: Mental Health and Addiction Services

A quarter of all adults and a fifth of teens age 13 to 18 experience a serious mental health condition in a given year. But, despite the significant need for treatment services, there aren’t enough resources for people to get the help they need in our community. El Camino Hospital is reaffirming its commitment to provide expert, compassionate mental healthcare. Your gift can help build a new 54,000-square-foot inpatient facility on the Mountain View campus and support the expansion of specialty outpatient treatment programs for adolescents, older adults, women and people with addictions. With your help, we can give more members of our community a better chance to achieve their promise, as we fulfill ours. For more information, please send us an email or call us at 650-988-7849.

Scrivner Challenge for Adolescent Mental Health

Los Altos Hills residents Mary and Doug Scrivner have made a $1 million gift to start an endowment for ASPIRE, El Camino Hospital’s adolescent mental health program. They’re challenging the community to help fully fund this critical need. Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), ASPIRE teaches teens the skills needed to help them succeed in high school and in life: emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and mindfulness. The Scrivners’ gift, together with all contributions to the challenge, will ensure ASPIRE can continue to meet the mental health needs of our community’s children, now and in the future. To learn more please send us an email or call us at 650-988-7849.

South Asian Heart Center

People of South Asian descent have a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes compared with the general population — two to four times higher. Conventional medical practice doesn’t take into account their special risk factors. The South Asian Heart Center’s proven and culturally tailored program includes advanced screening to uncover the hidden risks and lifestyle counseling to mitigate them through meditation, exercise, diet and sleep. Your donation will help the center expand so it can serve more people. For more information, please send us an email or call us at 650-940-7154.
