LUTN Mission Statement Graphic

HELP US SERVE ANYONE AT ANY TIME WITH ANY CONDITION

The Hennepin Health Foundation has the honor of connecting the generosity of our community with the mission of Hennepin Healthcare System Inc. (known more publicly as HCMC). Our unique position of being Minnesota's largest level one trauma center, safety net and public teaching hospital offers innovative ways to make an impact with philanthropy.

As you can imagine, caring for anyone at any time with any condition takes resources and a team of exceptional staff. Inspiring support to advance community health initiatives, health care access, medical education, and clinical research are our top priorities.

Light Up the Night is the signature fundraising event of the year benefiting the mission of HCMC. Created in 2011 by the Hennepin Health Foundation, this gala has raised over $1.5 million in proceeds for patient care, community health, medical education, and clinical research.
