Altru Health Foundation

Improving Health, Enriching Life

FoundationAs a nonprofit, community-owned health system, Altru relies on supporters like you. We treat patients in Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and the region. At Altru Health System, the needs of the patient come first.

We provide the same high level of care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

Altru Health Foundation has the privilege of being the liaison between donors and patient care needs. 100 percent of your gift goes directly to the patient care services of your choice. The Foundation does not use any part of your gift for administration expenses.

Board Of Directors

We are governed by a local board of directors who serve without pay and are most interested in putting patients before profits and community needs before returns.
