Platinum Sponsors


Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration. The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

It was the spirit of philanthropy that started PeaceHealth. Our founding Sisters collected donations from people in the mining and logging camps in the remote northwest corner of Washington State to build a hospital to care for loggers, mill workers, fishermen and their families. The same spirit continues today.  Over the past five years, PeaceHealth foundations have provided over $130M in support of our mission to promote personal and community health in our family of 10 hospitals and dozens of clinics and laboratories across Oregon, Washington and Alaska.
