Support Buffalo Hospital Foundation

As Minnesotans face the challenges of COVID-19, the role of the front line caregivers has never been more crucial. We all want to keep our critical team members in their roles, doing what they do best. This is why the foundations of Allina Health are joining together in an effort to support the needs of all our caregivers at this important time.

Now, more than ever, we are counting on donors to partner with us to meet the challenges ahead. The Allina Health Caring for Caregivers Fund was created to provide immediate financial support for our employees who experience financial challenges during this crisis.

Give Now to support our caregivers and all who make our essential services possible.

Nature's Healing Spaces

Buffalo Hospital site plan for Natures Healing SpacesBuffalo Hospital Foundation is bringing healing beyond hospital walls with the newly completed healing landscape on the hospital’s south lawn.

The outdoor space includes walking paths, a patio, a fountain with landscaped alcoves and benches to relax or enjoy lunch. This unique place of refuge offers tranquility and the opportunity to connect to nature. The outdoor space also features a railed walkway allowing patients to complete their physical therapy outside.

Buffalo Hospital’s healing landscape provides a restorative sanctuary for patients, a quiet refuge for staff and a tranquil destination for the entire community to enjoy.

You can be a part of putting the final touches on this project, such as a pergola, seating for the patio and native prairie grass restoration around the pond. Naming opportunities provide you with an opportunity to be recognized for your generosity for years to come. 

To learn more about the Nature’s Healing Spaces Campaign and ways to get involved, contact Ashley Andersen at 763-684-6800.

We will celebrate the opening of the Healing Gardens in the spring of 2020. More information will be shared soon.

Community Cancer Care Fund and Hope Fund

Hope Street Party logo

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 Community Cancer Care Fund and the Hope Fund offer emergency financial assistance to help with expenses during care and treatment. The Hope Fund provides support for those with breast cancer

Both funds are programs of the Buffalo Hospital Foundation. The Community Cancer Care Fund is funded by proceeds from the Street Party of Hope (formerly Pink Street Party) gifts from donors, and occasional grants. The Hope Fund is funded through the generous support of the Minnesota Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as well as gifts from donors.
