Essentia Health Community Health Endowment Fund

The Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the Essentia Health Community Health Endowment Fund, an endowment committed to ensuring the long-term, holistic health of the greater Brainerd Lakes community.

Our Community Health Endowment Fund will serve as a sustainable funding source for community health programs in Crow Wing County, which are currently largely funded by grants. One major initiative is Crow Wing Energized, a grassroots movement to support community health initiatives. Founded in 2013, this partnership between Essentia Health and Crow Wing County provides programs focusing on workplace wellness, mental fitness and healthy choices to redefine how the people of Brainerd Lakes perceive wellness.

Your gift to this endowment ensures that our vital community health programming, through Crow Wing Energized and other initiatives, remains a permanent source of support for our area for generations to come. Please help us reach our $1 million goal!

If you have any questions, or would like to make a gift of stock, appreciated assets or a planned gift, please contact David Jeremiason at or (218) 820-6893.
