CentraCare Health Foundation

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 12-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.

Jackson, a local student from St. Cloud, passed away in 2017 at age 25. Throughout his life, Jackson — while struggling with his own mental health issues — inspired others through his art, architecture and his spirit for adventure. Read Jackson's story.
