Patients in Fargo and Hillsboro count on you this Giving Hearts Day

January 21, 2019

As you may already know, Giving Hearts Day is celebrated every February in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. On this special day, giving hearts in our communities come together to make a difference in a profound way.

Becoming a giving heart is easy. Just visit on Thursday, Feb. 14, search “Sanford Health Foundation” and make a gift of $10 or more to support health care in either Fargo or Hillsboro.

In Fargo, gifts will support the Cancer Survivorship Program at Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center or Sanford Children’s Bereavement Program through the Benton’s Hope organization.  

This special program encourages cancer survivors to embrace life, each other and their future. It offers support groups, cancer retreats, personalized symptom management, informative newsletters, a cancer rehab program and so much more.

On Feb. 14, please visit, search “Sanford Health Foundation Fargo” and make your gift.  All gifts during Giving Hearts Day to Roger Maris will be matched by Sammons Financial.

In addition, the great people at Benton’s Hope are collecting donations on behalf of Sanford Children’s Fargo. This Giving Hearts Day, search “DMF – Benton’s Hope Fund” and make a gift! You will help support the bereavement program at Sanford Children’s Hospital, which provides extra resources to grieving families at no cost to them.

In Hillsboro, there’s a new need to help residents at the Sanford Hillsboro Care Center.

The best long-term care begins with comfort. This year, please consider a gift of $10 or more to help us upgrade to new modern resident beds at the Sanford Hillsboro Care Center.
