With the help of generous donors, Palo Alto Medical Foundation can purchase lifesaving medical equipment, offer specialty programs and services, provide care for the poor and underserved, and support clinical research. As cost pressures continue to grow, PAMF is committed to protecting quality community health care. Philanthropy is driven by the power of collective action to create lasting change.
