Sanford Health Foundation Hillsboro


The mission of the Sanford Health Foundation Hillsboro is to encourage and secure voluntary gifts and donations to support the mission of the Hillsboro Medical Center.


In the fall of 1986, the Board of Directors of the Community Hospital/Home Association in Hillsboro, North Dakota, endorsed the creation of a separate foundation for the hospital and nursing home. At that time and still today, the foundation strives to accomplish health related goals along with improving and maintaining the facility, and purchasing equipment.

The Sanford Health Foundation Hillsboro has successfully raised $1.5 million for a clinic addition to the medical center as well as remodeling to the facility in 1997. The Foundation also helped facilitate a $2 million dollar congregate housing project which operates under its own nonprofit corporation. It opened in the fall of 2000.

The Sanford Health Foundation Hillsboro undertook a $2 million capital campaign to build a new 2 story nursing home and assisted living facility.


Throughout the year, the Foundation hosts many special events for the community to raise funds for the medical center and their continuing projects and equipment needs. The Foundation continues to play an active role in the activities of the Medical Center and supports their special activities as well.
