Amidst a pandemic that ravaged budgets at healthcare foundations across the country, HonorHealth Foundation exceeded its 2020 fundraising goals and granted a record-breaking $26.37 million in donor contributions to HonorHealth.

Foundation president and CEO Jared Langkilde announced the milestone, crediting a year in which HonorHealth Foundation received the largest individual commitment in the organization’s history and posted 100 percent giving from Foundation staff and trustees as well as record giving from the hospital system’s executive leadership and employees.

“It’s a privilege to link generous donors with HonorHealth’s unbelievable brain power, skill, and passion,” noted Langkilde. “The cures and treatments of tomorrow are becoming available today, so even during a pandemic, we must move forward with a tremendous sense of urgency.”

The infusion of funding was a welcome boost to hospital leaders, physicians and staff during a difficult and uncertain year.

“This unprecedented donor generosity helped fund critical programs to support our caregivers during COVID and sustained many clinical and community programs that our patients still need despite a pandemic,” said Todd LaPorte, CEO of HonorHealth. “We are incredibly grateful that this community believes in our mission and gives from the heart to help us advance the health and wellbeing of our community.”
