The Hennepin Health Foundation (HHF)

The Hennepin Health Foundation exists to serve your interests in supporting Hennepin County Medical Center. This charitable work started fifty years ago by a volunteer based Service League. In 2009 this dedicated group dissolved in order to establish a professional 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to increase the capacity to attract philanthropic support and serve more patients and families.

The Hennepin Health Foundation guides those in the community who wish to support the mission of the Hennepin County Medical Center to provide the best possible care to every patient, search for new ways to improve care, educate health care providers, and ensure access to healthcare for all.
