Foundation and Giving Opportunities
“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” – Nelson Henderson
Purpose and History
Our foundation is grateful for the support of those who pass through the doors of Glacial Ridge Hospital and the entire health system. Their philanthropy has strengthened the ability of the foundation to assist the hospital in meeting the growing needs of our communities.
The foundation advances the mission of Glacial Ridge Hospital: to provide the highest quality “heartfelt” care to the communities we serve. The purpose of the Glacial Ridge Hospital Foundation is to secure private support and manage financial resources gained through voluntary giving for special projects of the Glacial Ridge Hospital.
The Glacial Ridge Hospital Foundation was established in April 1986 by five of the Hospital Board of Directors. Our directors are dedicated individuals who voluntarily give their time and resources.
They share a common interest in quality health care for our communities and independent living for seniors. In addition to securing private, financial resources, the Foundation manages the Ridgewood Villa, a modern, 59 unit, independent senior living apartment building across from the hospital.
How can I donate?
Private giving is the catalyst that helps make it possible for the hospital to transform lives and sustain its mission. There are many ways to give that not only help support the mission of the hospital but also contribute to your own personal and financial goals. The foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization. Your gift is tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes under the existing laws of the IRS. We thank those who honor the philanthropic spirit and the health of our communities through their gifts to the Glacial Ridge Hospital Foundation.
