Dakotas-based Sanford Health is dedicating $8.5 million to be used as matching funds for an endowment campaign as part of its recent merger with Bismarck-based Medcenter One.
Sanford says it will match donations to The Builders of Excellence Endowment Campaign dollar for dollar. It also is dedicating another $1.5 million to immediately enhance Sanford programs, services and initiatives in the Bismarck region.
Sanford is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo, N.D. It merged with Medcenter One in July, and Sanford officials announced they would invest $200 million over the next decade in health care in the Bismarck area and western North Dakota.
