Every Child Gets the Best Care

Taking care of our future means taking care of our children. Sanford Health is on a mission to protect and treat every child, along with researching new treatments and cures for childhood diseases. Philanthropy helps enhance that care, providing specialized equipment for kids, support services like Child Life, school tutoring, assistance for families with meals, travel expenses and more. Gifts from generous donors are impacting kids every day.

Childhood diseases, treatments and care plans are different from those of adults. Because of that, we need donor dollars to help provide the equipment like CT scanners, NICU beds and more for our littlest patients. We also need to care for kids emotionally as they face these sometimes scary situations. With the help of generous donors, we are able to provide services like Child Life Specialists, art therapy, school tutoring and more at no cost to our patients.

The Need

Families often need support above and beyond medical services, including assistance with meals, transportation and lodging. Each donation helps keep families together and gives hope, comfort and light to these kids as they fight for their futures.

Pediatric Equipment

Donor funds help provide equipment like pediatric CT scanners, child-size chemotherapy chairs and Giraffe OmniBeds for NICU patients.
