Allen Foundation

Our Mission

Allen Foundation strengthens the programs, services and community relationships of Allen Health System.

Our Vision

Allen Foundation endows the best outcome for every patient and every student, every time.

Your Support Sustains Us

Allen Hospital, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, has been caring for families in the Cedar Valley since 1925. And thanks to you, we are building to care for generations to come. Every year, with your generosity, the Foundation returns roughly $2 million to the hospital, college, clinics and UnityPoint Hospice. Your gifts support things like programs, our many service lines, equipment and staff professional development.
