Why Support Avera?

Your gift to the Avera Foundation could make all the difference for someone you care about. By donating, you support lifesaving services that hospital revenue alone cannot provide. Give back to a health care community that’s helped you so it can do the same for your children, grandchildren, neighbors and friends.

Reasons to Give

  • As a mother who battled the horrible monster of addiction in my daughter, I know how personally frustrating, troubling and ultimately devastating it can be for families. Your gift supports patients and families facing the devastation of addiction by offsetting the cost of life-saving treatment.”

  • Our time at the hospitality house transformed her treatment experience. A place we never thought we’d need had become a refuge we could not do without.

  • Supporting the Home for Hope campaign is a great way to show your dedication to the health and well-being of the local community and surrounding areas.
