Leave a Legacy

Thank you for being our hero

Recognizing our generous donors

Your donations make you a hero to all of us at Fairview—and to everyone we serve. We are proud to recognize the generous donors who make it possible to provide exceptional health care for our community.

Corporate and foundation giving

As a nonprofit health system, Fairview depends on the generosity of corporations and foundations to meet our mission of improving the health of the communities we serve. For more information about corporate relations, contact Fairview Foundation at 612-672-7777.

Your gifts, of all sizes, help Fairview provide the best care to everyone who comes through our doors. We are honored to recognize our donors through a series of giving societies that recognize both annual gifts and cumulative giving.

We have developed a donor recognition program to honor our most generous donors. Whether you give unrestricted gifts or direct your donations to a specific program, site or project, you can become a member of one or more of our current recognition societies.
