Essentia Health-East Foundations

Strengthen your community and help improve health care in the Twin Ports. Give to your local Essentia Health foundation in Duluth, Minnesota, or Superior, Wisconsin. The Essentia Health-East Foundations are comprised of:

  • Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic Foundation (Duluth, Minnesota)
  • Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation (Duluth, Minnesota)
  • Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Hospital-Superior Foundation (Superior, Wisconsin)

Why Give?

Your contribution to Duluth Clinic Foundation, St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation, or St. Mary’s Hospital-Superior Foundation goes to the hospitals, clinics, and people in your community. Because of you, Essentia Health facilities in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin have been able to upgrade technology and equipment, and provide better care and support.
