giving priorities

Programs that Impact Patients

One of the best parts of giving a gift is watching someone receive it – seeing the joy it brings to their lives. Sanford Health Foundation donors can see this every day as their gifts make a difference for patients. Our key giving priorities encompass the areas of greatest need for patients, making sure philanthropy is making the greatest impact for all.

Give for Patients. Give for Good.

Focusing donor dollars on key priorities helps us help the most patients – from kids battling cancer and rare diseases to families with mental health struggles. By funding research and innovation, we can see the good our donors do each day through patient stories from around the region.


Sanford Health is on a mission to protect and treat every child that enters our doors. Donor dollars help keep children and their families close to home and surrounded by state-of-the-art equipment and treatments.
