Winona Health Foundation

Board of Directors
When you make a general gift in support of Winona Health, you can be assured that it will be directed to an area
that will make a difference in our ability to meet the healthcare needs of our community. Health education, new
surgical equipment, and technological improvements are just a few places private gifts can make a difference.
Members of the Winona Health Foundation Board work in cooperation with the Winona Health Board and
administration to determine how to maximize philanthropic dollars.
Many benefactors choose to direct their gifts to a specific Winona Health service or area. You can do so by
simply indicating what you would like your gift to support. To learn more about the Winona Health Foundation,
contact Nancy Brown, executive director, at 507.457.4342.
