At an annual recognition event, Fairview and Ebenezer Foundations presented three Outstanding Philanthropic Partnership Awards to honor donors for legacy of service, improving access to health care and planned giving. UCare was honored for improving access to health resources in the community. UCare’s mission is to improve the health of its members through innovative services and partnerships across communities. The support of the UCare Fund enables Fairview to help the underserved by expanding and strengthening its community health programming in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis. Support from the UCare Fund was used to open Health Commons, a drop-in health and wellness center aimed at fostering relationships among residents, building trust in health care providers and empowering residents to live healthy lives.
Fairview Foundation builds philanthropic partnerships to further Fairview’s mission of improving the health of the communities it serves. The Ebenezer Foundation raises funds to support Ebenezer senior living communities, which help older adults and others make their lives more independent, meaningful and secure.
