Community Benefit

Every year, a measureable portion of Children’s annual expenses fund community benefit programs and services that promote health and increase access to care. These services include financial assistance, the unreimbursed costs of Medicaid, community health programs and advocacy, medical professional education, and more. These costs are reported to the IRS on the Children’s Minnesota 990.

Contributions in 2014

In 2014, Children’s invested $108 million on community benefit activities to improve the health and well-being of children in our service area.
