Endowment Fund

Frank Hansen was an original board member for the Clinic when it started in 1979; he was also our President for many years until his death in 2010.  As part of his estate he generously provided $25,000 for the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic to start an endowment fund.  Frank was dedicated to the community of Cook County and believed in the mission of the Clinic.  We are grateful for his support and vision over the years.

Help our Endowment grow!!!

The Sawtooth Mountain Clinic Endowment Fund has been established with the Minnesota Community Foundation to support the recruitment and retention of talented physicians to serve the Cook County community.

The purpose of the Fund is to provide a perpetual income stream to encourage our physicians to pursue leading-edge and innovative practices for the benefit of their patients. Distributions generated by the endowment will fund special projects and activities of interest to our physicians that will further encourage and motivate them in their commitment to the Clinic and the community. This will serve as a powerful and unique tool in attracting and retaining high quality physicians and serve as a mark of the Clinic’s tradition of excellence and commitment to the welfare of the patient.

All gifts are tax deductible.
