Save the Date: Giving Hearts Day, Feb. 11, 2021

The Unity Medical Center Foundation (UMCF) will again participate in Dakota Medical Foundation’s Giving Hearts Day (GHD), slated for Feb. 11, 2021. Last year, 174 donors from North Dakota, Minnesota and as far away as Ohio raised just over $15,000 to directly benefit Unity Medical Center. An additional $5,000 in matching funds were provided by First United Bank, Bremer Bank, Choice Bank, North Star Community Credit Union and Dakota Medical Foundation. Proceeds went toward a TruRize Clinical Patient Chair, which promotes early patient mobility with multiple positions and stand-assist features.

This year’s GHD fundraising priority is yet to be determined. UMCF is also seeking donors interested in providing the required $5,000 in matching gifts to encourage others to participate. If you are interested, please call Jessica at (701) 379-3003 or email

22nd Annual Harvest Auction

The 22nd Annual Harvest Auction, held virtually for the first time ever, was a wonderful success! Thank you to everyone who participated in some way. What a generous outpouring of community support!

This year's Harvest Auction will benefit our new hospital expansion, specifically toward the purchase of digital information boards for patient rooms. The Reverse Auction proceeds will go toward four high-flow nasal canulas systems for COVID treatments, bronchitis and other ailments.
