Give the Gift of Good Health
We care about the health of our entire community, so the North Memorial Health Foundation dedicates itself to raising money to support it. When you give to the foundation, you help close the gap between the services we provide and the compensation we receive from customer payments, insurance and the government. Your gift improves customer service, programs and services, and community partnerships. That all adds up to better healthcare for everyone.
For more than 25 years, we have made improving care, treatment, outcomes and experiences at North Memorial Health our mission. When you give to the North Memorial Health Foundation, all of your funds are dedicated to improving our healthcare system—not the foundation itself.
We rely on donations to help close the gap between what we receive through customer payments, health insurance and government funding. Your entire gift supports improvements that would likely not otherwise be possible, making us a strong, responsive and accessible community resource.
When you donate, you help:
- Improve customer experience
- Modernize facilities
- Broaden programs and services
- Support community partnerships
- Cover families who cannot afford to pay for care
- Provide access to specialized medical equipment and new technologies
- Expand access to health education and prevention activities in our communities
- Increase training for medical staff
Our nonprofit status means we provide care for all, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. This means everyone who walks through our doors will receive the best healthcare we can provide.
