A Gift of Gratitude

No other charity has such a powerful mission as health care, whose charge is caring for everyone in the community from their first breath to their last. Gifts to the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Charitable Fund support the most critical needs for health care in our area through specific projects that might not otherwise be implemented because of limited resources. Dollars donated touch thousands of patients and families each year.


Your opportunity to support healthcare in our community

The CRMC Charitable Fund supports the major needs of the medical campus by raising funds for equipment and technology, to advance patient care, and staff programs and education to promote the health and well-being of its patients and the people in the area it serves. Funds are obtained through individual donations, grants, and community events.

Your financial donation has a direct and lasting impact on your family, friends and neighbors.
