WISH is a giving circle formed by a group of local women, working with the PVH and MCR Foundation, to educate, empower and inspire women philanthropists by supporting the health needs of our community through UCHealth programs, partnerships and services provided in Larimer and Weld counties.

As an affiliate of our foundation, WISH provides members the opportunity to pool their funds, learn about health needs in Larimer and Weld counties, and collectively decide how their money is utilized in support of local programs, projects, and services provided by UCHealth, including services provided in partnership with community organizations. Through an annual review and voting process, WISH members are actively involved in how their dollars are spent. One hundred percent of annual membership gifts are awarded to selected applicants.

WISH membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the health and health care services of our community.
