We are extremely grateful to our physicians, community partners and individual supporters dedicated to helping serve the community.  Without your financial support we would not be able to help the hundreds of community members looking to SDCMS Foundation to improve their health and change their lives.

Please consider making a donation to Champions for Health to support these efforts.  Our Health Champions Council is a special group of concerned and generous individuals, making an annual contribution, who help us to respond to growing needs in the community, and in turn, receive distinctive membership benefits.

In-kind support from physicians, community members, corporations, businesses and local, regional and national organizations allow us to leverage cash contributions for a strong infrastructure, capable staff and the power to change lives.

We would like to thank the following for their support during Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016*:
