Builders of Excellence

By giving to the Builders of Excellence Endowment Campaign, your philanthropic spirit and leadership will leave a lasting legacy on the future of health care in central and western North Dakota. The earnings from an endowment fund are paid annually, forever, to support local health care.


You can give to an existing endowment fund within the Sanford Health Foundation or, with a gift of $10,000 or more, create your own, named endowment fund to benefit the Sanford programs and services of your choice.


Funds raised in support of the campaign will provide the resources to transform the future of health care in our region to unprecedented levels through advancement in medical science and quality of care.


Sanford Health will double your gift!


By giving to the Builders of Excellence Endowment Campaign, you can double your investment in local health care. Sanford Health is matching dollar-for-dollar all contributions and pledges received up to $10 million.


The match will help us raise $20 million in endowment funds to benefit health care in central and western North Dakota for generations to come.


What is an endowment?

A qualified endowment is defined as an “irrevocable fund held by a North Dakota incorporated or established organization that is a qualified non-profit organization; or a bank or trust company holding the fund on behalf of a qualified non-profit organization.” An endowment is a fund held by a tax-exempt organization where the principal of the fund is not expendable. Only the interest and appreciation earned in an endowment fund can be used for current operations.
