Your Gifts at Work

PHOTO-Tough-Enough-Group.jpgYou can make a difference in health care in the Brookings region by making a gift to the Brookings Health System Foundation.PHOTO-Bobcat_3759.jpg 

The Foundation relies on private and corporate gifts to increase awareness and build a sustainable base of supporters. Foundation funds help Brookings Health System reach even higher with its services to the community. 95¢ of every dollar supports our mission with 5¢ allocated to overhead costs.

All donations will, with your permission, receive public recognition and the sincere thanks of our staff, boards, associates and the community.
