where dollars go

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.

Your Money. Your Community.

A donation through the Sanford Health Foundation is a donation to your local health care. Your hard-earned dollars stay in your community—whether it’s Sioux Falls, Bismarck, Fargo or Bemidji—and support local priorities and people.

100% of that money goes to families in need, just like my family.
