INDIVIDUAL/FAMILY BENEFIT FUNDS

When making a contribution, donors have the option to:
  • Make an online gift
    When making an online gift, donors may recommend an active individual/family benefit fund for their gift.* Every effort is made to distribute Lend A Hand donations based on donor recommendations and program guidelines while an online benefit fund is active. Once an individual/family benefit fund has closed, no further gifts will be distributed for that fund. Match gifts received after a fund is closed are deposited and distributed to current/future families through the Lend A Hand Giving Fund.

    To make an online gift, click the yellow donate link above.

    *The IRS requires Dakota Medical Foundation to notify donors that they are making their contribution to Dakota Medical Foundation's Lend A Hand program. Pursuant to IRS guidelines, donors may make non-binding recommendations to the foundation that their gift benefit either the Lend A Hand Giving Fund or an approved benefit fund currently listed on the website. Dakota Medical Foundation will give thoughtful consideration and make every effort to distribute funding based on donor recommendations and program guidelines.

  • Make a cash or check gift to a bank/credit union
    Cash or check gifts must be payable to the name of an individual/family benefit fund and directed to the bank/credit union managing that account. DMF Lend A Hand is not able to process cash or checks for individual/family benefit funds.*
