Our Philanthropic Priorities

Our Philanthropic Priorities

At OU Health, our mission is leading health care – in patient care, education and research. As Oklahoma’s comprehensive academic health system, our combined efforts improve the lives of all people with the help of transformational philanthropy.

Our priorities center around funding for children and adults alike, program and facility enhancements, new equipment, extended training and education for caregivers as well as special projects. Particular areas of philanthropic focus include: cardiac, cancer, neurosciences and trauma.

Your gift here lifts entire families, provides lifesaving equipment in world-class facilities and invests in research to impact future generations. Together, we’re leading healthcare for Oklahomans. Here are the ways we’re planning on improving the healthcare landscape not only for Oklahoma – but for the world.
