The RiverView Foundation Board of Directors invites everyone to make a commitment to heal and save lives by donating to the Foundation on Giving Hearts Day, February. 14. 

Giving Hearts Day is an annual 24-hour, online, give-a-thon for RiverView and other non-profits through a partnership with the Dakota Medical Foundation (DMF), Impact Foundation and Alex Stern Family Foundation. It is the biggest fundraising day for the Foundation thanks to donors like you. With your help, the Foundation has raised over $1 million in the 11 years of the program’s existence – more specifically the 11, 24 hour days. 

This year marks the 12th annual Giving Hearts Day match program.  DMF and other generous donors will match, dollar for dollar, online contributions to the RiverView Foundation of $10 or more up to $75,000. The match funding through the Giving Hearts Day program is only available on Thursday, February 14 (12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m.).  Donations must be made online at givingheartsday.org. Links will also be provided on the RiverView homepage at riverviewhealth.org and the KROX website at kroxam.com.

Many projects have been made possible at RiverView Health through the years thanks to the generosity of those donating on Giving Hearts Day. This year the Board has committed undesignated Giving Hearts Day donations to RiverView’s most current need, an upgrade of the Inpatient Unit as it is time to retire the current well-used space. An improved Inpatient Unit will enhance care and better accommodate the needs of our patients, their families and our clinical care team.

Each one of our Board members recently committed to making a personal Giving Hearts Day charitable donation to this project because we recognize the importance of this investment in our community. Join RiverView’s Foundation in making this project a reality.

The promise is to invest your dollars where they are needed most and will enhance patient care. If you have questions about priority projects or critical needs of the organization or would like assistance with your online donation, visit with Foundation Director Kent Bruun at 218-281-9249, kbruun@riverviewhealth.org or stop by Bruun’s office located near the RiverView Cafeteria.
