Working with the community to strengthen and enhance healthcare services to meet the needs of present and future generations in the Bemidji community.

Giving provides donors with great benefits. Anecdotal evidence suggests that charitable donors feel good when exercising generosity. Voluntary giving oftentimes satisfies a deep human need to help others.  In fact, studies show that generosity actually promotes good health and happiness. Charitable giving may also provide special recognition and a lasting legacy for you and your organization.

By partnering with Sanford Bemidji and the community, Sanford Health Foundation of Northern Minnesota achieves its mission of supporting and promoting community healthcare services.  The Foundation’s work ensures availability of state-of-the-art medical services and up-to-date technology as well as modern facilities for the Bemidji area.
