Grateful Patient Program

If your life has been impacted by a UPMC in Central Pa caregiver, please join us in lifting these selfless individuals up and recognizing them for their kindness, skill, and compassion.


The UPMC Pinnacle Foundation offers a variety of educational funding opportunities, which are available to current employees and local students pursuing a career in health care.

Helping Hands Fund

Imagine not being able to afford the necessary medication for treatment, or not having access to transportation after a hospital stays, or not even having a place to stay for the night. The Helping Hands Fund supports the work of UPMC in Central Pa's social services team and makes their compassionate work possible as they care for our patients most in need.

Mammogram Voucher Program

Early detection offers the best chance for beating breast cancer, and when you make a gift to the Mammogram Voucher Program, you're providing the gift of free diagnostic screening for people who can't otherwise afford these lifesaving tests, making it possible for them to start on the road to healing.

Children's Resource Center

The UPMC Child Advocacy Center (CAC) is one of the oldest child advocacy centers in Pennsylvania. It is the only child advocacy center serving Dauphin, Lebanon, Cumberland, Perry, Mifflin, Juniata, and Schuylkill Counties. The CAC sees 1,400 children annually and is in the top 10% nationally for the number of children served.
