About the Grinnell Regional Medical Center Foundation

The Grinnell Regional Medical Center Foundation helps area residents and businesses to invest in the future of healthcare in their own community. Its purpose is to bring the gifts of the community together to strengthen, support and enhance the mission of the medical center. Gifts to GRMC and its affiliated clinics support a broad range of medical services, equipment, and technology, as well as special programs. Projects include:

  • Community wellness and education projects. 
  • The purchase of new equipment for up-to-date diagnostic, medical, surgical and treatment services.
  • Development of new services and patient care programs.
  • Construction and renovation needs.

The foundation is a private, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization governed by a volunteer board. Donations to the foundation are tax-deductible, as permissible by law.

Everyday, GRMC touches hundreds of people with compassionate care. The medical center is vital to the local community. We make sure essential resources are in place, ensuring the best possible care is always available—right here, close to home. Philanthropic support is pivotal to GRMC's ability to offer world-class care. Your gift joins other gifts that allow us to make a difference in people's lives every day.

There are many ways to ensure high-quality healthcare for future generations, including opportunities to donate using our secure online pledge form. Gifts are welcome and greatly appreciated.
