employee giving

Give for your passion. Give for good.

No matter your role at Sanford Health or where you work, we’re all united by a common calling to care…a passion for doing good in the world.

One way you can live that calling is by becoming an employee donor. 100% of every gift through the Sanford Health Foundation directly supports our Sanford Family, our patients and our communities in meaningful ways you can see and feel.

More than 10,000 employees choose to give for good. We invite you to join us!

Giving In Action

Watch this video to see how every gift adds up and comes to life in incredible ways all around us:

To learn more, explore our 2022 annual report on giving. Last year, the generosity of employees, grateful patients and families, and other community members allowed us to put $12.5 million in philanthropy to work across our system of care.

  • Funding scholarships and giving thousands of employees the chance to attend conferences and training
  • Assisting colleagues in times of unexpected hardship through the Employee Crisis Fund, which has provided nearly $2 million in financial support since 2020
  • Providing cutting-edge equipment, including Giraffe OmniBeds, 3D mammography equipment, ultrasound machines, EKG machines and more
  • Fueling services like nurse navigation, Child Life, social work, spiritual care and more, which are never billed to patients
  • Helping thousands of patients and their families with treatment-related needs not covered by insurance, like meals, lodging, travel, medical equipment and more
  • Meeting countless other needs and bringing big ideas to life faster than otherwise possible
