volunteer for good

We can make a difference, together

More than 14,000 individuals, families and local businesses make up our Foundation community that is committed to giving for good — but we need you. You can bring more comfort, possibilities, assistance and hope to the community you call home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I donate other than time and money?

Anything and everything helps. For instance, you can link the Sanford Health Foundation to your AmazonSmile account at no cost to you. Local businesses can find ways to help, like Shotwell Floral who delivers flowers to Sanford Hospice House in hopes of brightening patient rooms. Contact us, and we’d love to hear your ideas.

Can I start my own fundraiser for the Sanford Health Foundation?

Yes. Whether you are celebrating an upcoming life event or just want to make a difference in your community, creating your own fundraiser allows you to share what you are most passionate about with your friends and family. Learn more about fundraising.

Can I volunteer on a non-reoccurring basis?

Of course. We understand that our volunteers lead busy lives and have constantly changing schedules. Even volunteering one afternoon or at one event makes a huge difference.

Where do I sign up to volunteer?

There will always be a place where help is needed. The first step is to contact your local Sanford Health Foundation office. You can do this through our contact us page to see where your community needs your help most.

What can I do if I can’t donate money?

Donating your time is just as important as donating money. Contact us to find volunteer opportunities.

I strongly believe that it’s not enough to just achieve whatever level of success we can while we are alive on this earth, but rather, take whatever we have and turn it into something significant.
