About the MVHS Foundation

The mission of the MVHS Foundation is to build relationships and partnerships that inspire generosity in support of the Mohawk Valley Health System. 

The MVHS Foundation is governed and represented by a Board of Directors made up of community-based volunteers, including business leaders and individuals who hold MVHS and health as a personal priority.

Our Foundation partners with dedicated friends and donors to achieve our commitment to our patients and our community. Learn how philanthropy is changing lives at MVHS and how you can help.


As qualified 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Foundation secures private and corporate gifts and grants through annual giving programs, proposal submissions, major and planned gift development and special events. Gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. We are responsible for donor recognition and stewardship, and management of donated funds to ensure fulfillment of donor intent now and in the future. A professional staff is employed to carry out the Foundation’s programs and manage the administrative and financial responsibilities.

We strive to be a model in donor and gift stewardship and as such subscribe to the Donor Bill of Rights set forth by the American Association of Fundraising Counsel, the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy, and Association of Fundraising Professionals. Foundation representatives are committed to HIPAA privacy standards and regulations. Our Foundation does not sell or trade donor information.
