About

Make a difference in the lives of those who need it most — right here in the Erie region.


As UPMC Hamot's partner in service, Hamot Health Foundation provides you with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most — right here in the Erie region.

With nearly 100 different funds that benefit the hospital as well as the community, Hamot Health Foundation allows you to have an impact on almost any area of healthcare or community well-being that is especially meaningful to you.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our mission is to provide opportunities to advance health care initiatives by aligning the intentions of our donors to the critical needs of UPMC Hamot and our community. We invest locally in the resources and people that continually make the world-class care of UPMC Hamot a reality. Every dollar donated stays here, with funds being allocated based on careful planning to help meet our goals for the highest level of care possible, for as many people as possible.

Take a look at our Promise 21 campaign page to see the five areas of impact we focus on.
