About Us

Established in 1992, the Medica Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable grant-making foundation for community-based programs and services. The Medica Foundation is the charitable giving arm of Medica Health Plans, a Minnesota-based nonprofit HMO.

Our Mission

The Medica Foundation funds community-based initiatives and programs that support the needs of our customers and the greater community by improving their health and removing barriers to health care services.


The Medica Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board and Foundation leadership team meet each year to review community needs and past grant outcomes to determine the annual funding strategy. 

Funding areas are modified from year to year based on community needs. Funding is provided to organizations within the Medica Foundation service area of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
