Support for the Gritman Foundation is support for exceptional patient care throughout our region.

Your charitable gifts help us expand access to health care, reduce the cost of services and provide a necessary boost to ensure our hospital and clinics have both the most advanced technology and innovative treatments available.

A private, nonprofit, community-led hospital, we invest all our earnings back into caring for our patients – including through the generous philanthropic support of our donors.

For all questions on ways to give, please contact us at or give us a call at 208-883-6231.
