  • Established in 2003, the New Ulm Medical Center Foundation is a nonprofit organization that exists to enhance the health of New Ulm Medical Center patients and the wellness of the communities we serve.

    Our organization provides a vehicle for area community members who want to sustain New Ulm Medical Center's mission through donations, memorials or bequests. All activities and funds are dedicated exclusively to supporting and providing for area medical needs and to improve the physical and mental well-being of the area's residents.

    Heart of New Ulm Project

    The Heart of New Ulm Project is a 10-year research and demonstration project that began in 2009 which aims to decrease heart attacks in New Ulm through health care service enhancements, lifestyle change programs, and environmental policy changes. The New Ulm Medical Center Foundation is raising $100,000 for the Heart of New Ulm Project. Please go to our Ways to Give page if you would like to contribute to this project.

    Hope Fund

    It is difficult enough to cope with a diagnosis of cancer without the added burden of financial stress that can occur as a result.

    The Hope Fund offers emergency financial assistance to those with breast cancer to help with expenses during care and treatment.

    The Hope Fund is a program of the New Ulm Medical Center Foundation and funded through the generous support of the Minnesota Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the CureĀ®.
