Who We Are

Chartered in 1967 as a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit organization under the leadership of founder Dr. Donald Nollet and his wife Marne, the Central Mesabi Medical Foundation (CMMF) was created to serve and enhance the health care community through the purchase of equipment, the support of community programs, and scholarships for future health care providers.

Today, the original passion, commitment, and legacy of lasting change live on as we honor the generosity and foresight of our founders. We work to continue their noble mission and commitment to enhancing health care resources for local patients and supporting medical excellence, which will have a lasting impact for generations to come.
