Share the Gift of Gratitude

Has your life been changed by the care and kindness of a doctor, nurse, staff member or team at Sanford Health? We invite you to make a gift of gratitude in their name through our Guardian Angel program!

Your honored caregiver will receive special recognition and a pin they can wear. 100% of your gift will stay local to help care for more patients and families near you… and inspire more gratitude. It will only take a moment of your time, but it will mean the world to a caregiver to know what their care meant to you. Thank you!
