|The Howard Young Foundation, Inc. (HYF), established in 1984, is a quasi-independent philanthropic, not-for-profit, charitable 501 c (3) organization. The sole purpose of the Foundation is to actively seek and invest charitable support for Howard Young Medical Center, and Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital, collectively referred to as Ministry Howard Young Health Care (MHYHC). Howard Young Foundation, Inc. is committed to advancing the healthcare of our communities. Through the effective stewardship of the generous charitable gifts we receive, the Foundation is able to ensure the delivery of superior healthcare to patients and their families in the Northwoods.|
The promise of health care philanthropy is the ability to change and save lives. It is because of the vision of philanthropist Howard Young, who in 1972 donated $20 Million dollars and established an endowment to build and sustain a larger and more modern hospital. The Howard Young Foundation, Inc. remains devoted to providing and advancing excellent medical and patient care through the power of your philanthropy.
The Foundation is now embarking on a journey to transform and sustain health care in northern Wisconsin for generations to come. Through a set of donor-centered and community-focused philanthropic initiatives, the Foundation will ensure that physicians, clinicians, staff, patients, friends and donors work together to solve the greatest health care needs of the community and fund the most vital health care services.
Our goal is to maximize the effectiveness of every dollar contributed to the Foundation by providing donors the information they need to make informed giving decisions. Through fundraising, grants, and stewardship, the Foundation is dedicated to health-related programs, services, and improving the health and well-being in our hospitals and for our community.
