Our mission

At Park Nicollet Foundation, we are partnering to build healthy lives. We use philanthropy to enhance the patient and family experience, promote innovation and research, and respond to the health care needs of our community. We distributed $4.5 million in 2014 to support these goals.


Nurses touch lives, give a helping hand, and provide the love, care and time patients and families need to heal. Park Nicollet nurses help create an atmosphere of health and healing that unites compassion, spirit and expertise in our healthcare environment. National Nurses Week, May 6-12, gives us the chance to reflect on all the ways nurses provide care, touch our hearts and make a difference in the lives of so many.

In honor of our nurses, Park Nicollet Foundation is giving everyone the opportunity to show their gratitude and support for nurses by donating a tribute to one of the following designated funds for nursing excellence: Sarah Harrison Knight Award, Ruth Berglund Award, Roxanna Gapstur Nursing Leadership of Excellence Fund, Joanne Purrington Critical Care Nursing Leadership Fund, or David Kampic Siegel Nursing Fund.
