Become a Patient Partner

Give a Monetary Gift

The Essentia Health Foundation is comprised of 11 separate foundations – all dedicated to improving and expanding health care in the local communities they serve. You can direct your gifts to the Essentia foundation of your choosing and the funds will be used to support facilities in that foundation’s community.
