About the Cole Foundation

The Cole Foundation was established in May of 2012 to preserve the legacy of Mr. Charles Cole and the local hometown hospital that our community has come to love and support. The Cole Foundation is committed to ensuring that donations stay local to support health care services in the communities UPMC Cole serves. Every penny that is donated to the Cole Foundation will stay to serve the medical needs of our diverse community and will carry on the legacy of Mr. Charles Cole for many years to come.

The Cole Foundation is governed by a board of directors who volunteer their time and energy in pursuit of the foundation's mission to support and enhance the work of UPMC Cole.
