The Howard Young Foundation, Inc. (HYF), established in 1984, is a quasi-independent philanthropic, not-for-profit, charitable 501 c (3) organization. The sole purpose of the Foundation is to actively seek and invest charitable support for Howard Young Medical Center and Ascension Eagle River Memorial Hospital, collectively referred to as Ascension Howard Young Health Care. Howard Young Foundation, Inc. is committed to advancing the healthcare of our communities. Through the effective stewardship of the generous charitable gifts we receive, the Foundation is able to ensure the delivery of superior healthcare to patients and their families in the Northwoods.  

What We Do

The Foundation is now embarking on a journey to transform and sustain health care in northern Wisconsin for generations to come. Through a set of donor-centered and community-focused philanthropic initiatives, the Foundation will ensure that physicians, clinicians, staff, patients, friends and donors work together to solve the greatest health care needs of the community and fund the most vital health care services.

Our goal is to maximize the effectiveness of every dollar contributed to the Foundation by providing donors the information they need to make informed giving decisions. Through fundraising, grants, and stewardship, the Foundation is dedicated to health-related programs and services, in addition to improving the health and well-being in our hospitals and for our community.
