Mayo Clinic Health System suspends philanthropic activity, including community giving and sponsorships

Mayo Clinic Health System values its community partnerships, and remains committed to the health and well-being of the communities it serves.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayo Clinic is facing unprecedented challenges, including a significant financial impact. Because of this, the organization has made the difficult decision to suspend all community philanthropic activity until further notice, including community giving, sponsorships, Hometown Health grants and scholarships.

This change will enable Mayo Clinic Health System to focus efforts and resources on the COVID-19 response. Mayo Clinic Health System has a proven history of resilience and is making every effort to position itself to emerge from this pandemic better able to fulfill its mission.

Mayo Clinic Health System looks forward to reconnecting with community partners when funding becomes available.
