2013 Giving Hearts Day Results

Posted: Updated:

Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation surpassed their "Giving Hearts Day" goal by more than $1 million dollars! They were shooting for $2 million, and the total ended up being  $3,679,655.

Of course, the Dakota Medical Foundation matches all donations, so we wanted to find out where the money comes from that they give back to the community.

Pat Traynor with DMF explains, "Dakota Medical Foundation was formed by the sale of Dakota Hospital right here in south University Drive. We have an endowment of about $92 million dollars, so we like to invest that return into the region. So since 1996, we've invested over $68 million dollars in charitable organizations in North Dakota & western Minnesota."

Giving Hearts Day donations rose from $1,133 per minute in 2012 to $2,553 a minute in 2013.
