Invest in exceptional care

CentraCare Health Foundation exists to improve health and health care. It really is that simple, it just takes a tremendous amount of work. Our staff and our board tackle that challenge head on, engaging our community to invest in exceptional care within CentraCare Health and its 23-county service area. The Foundation’s work — and your generosity — benefit all of Central Minnesota by supporting advances in treatment and technology across a spectrum of health care services.

There are different ways to give, and simply put, your gift will provide a healthier future.

Clara's House

Your gift will double!

Design Electric, Inc., will generously match donations up to $100,000 received by Dec. 31.

The need for behavioral health services in Central Minnesota is critical — one in five children experience mental health issues.

At Clara's House, youth receive care for mental health problems in an atmosphere that is warm, healing
and supportive. Each year, Clara’s House serves more than 500 youth.

Despite limited insurance reimbursement, CentraCare
remains committed to providing behavioral health services. Your gift can purchase therapeutic art supplies to help children express their thoughts and feelings or sponsor a parenting skills class to ease the transition from Clara’s House to school or home. For just $25, $100 or $1,000 you could make a BIG difference in the life of a child.

Make a gift today!

Thank you to the generous matching gift from
