our Impact

Philanthropy at Work

Health care changes fast. It takes generous, caring people, like you, to help Sanford Health stay ahead of the curve and deliver world-class care for every patient at every age and stage of life.


Gifts of all sizes add up in powerful ways…sometimes by making prominent new facilities and major initiatives possible. But more often, by supporting the meaningful services and details that give comfort, hope and reassurance at some of life’s most challenging times.

The Impact in 2023

100% of every gift makes a difference for patients and their families, our caregivers and our communities across the Midwest and beyond.

Where Dollars Go

Focusing donor dollars on key priorities helps us support the most patients – from kids battling cancer and rare diseases to families with mental health struggles to senior and hospice services. 100% of the money we raise goes directly towards Sanford Health priorities and patients.
