About Fairview Foundation

Your gift to Fairview helps change—and save—lives.
Fairview Foundation builds philanthropic partnerships to further Fairview’s mission: We are driven to heal, discover and educate for longer, healthier lives. The generosity of donors like you has always played a key role in Fairview’s strength as a premier nonprofit health system—we were founded through philanthropy more than a century ago.

Fundraising supports:
  • Fairview’s community hospitals and clinics across Minnesota
  • University of Minnesota Medical Center and University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital
  • Ebenezer senior living communities
  • Services ranging from heart and cancer care to hospice and community health outreach

We’re committed to responsibly stewarding the generous gifts of our donors. Ninety-five percent of your donation directly supports the program or service of your choice.
