Our MissionImprove and enhance healthcare services for people throughout Northcentral Montana.

About BenefisFoundationBenefis Health System Foundation is a non-profit, charitable giving organization that exists to improve the lives of Benefis Health System patients and community members throughout the Northcentral Montana region.

Since 1998, caring donors have generously supported a multitude of programs, projects, and funds that address the greatest healthcare needs at our health system and in our community and help deliver high quality care to our neighbors, friends, and loved ones.

100 percent of the money raised by the Benefis Foundation goes directly towards improving healthcare. Our devoted donors make the world of difference in the lives of countless Montanans every single day.

In 2017, donors and private grantors gave more than $2.5 million in philanthropic support to the Benefis Foundation. And, a little over $2.5 million was disbursed for programs and services throughout Benefis Health System and the community and region.

Dear Friends and Community Members, In August 2017, I was privileged to become President of

the Benefis Health System Foundation as an expansion

of my existing role at Benefis. I am honored to have the

opportunity to work directly with the Benefis Foundation

and its many generous donors.

The extraordinary impact that our donors have on the

health and wellbeing of our patients and community

members is powerful and inspiring.

The following are just a few of the many accomplishments and milestones of 2017 that

were realized because of the generosity of donors like you:

• $1 million of donor-raised funds helped the Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute (SCI) purchase the Varian EDGE™ Radiosurgery System, the first in Montana and surrounding five-state area.

• We celebrated a remarkable milestone in November—the 10,000th patient received care at SCI since the institute opened in 2005.

• After a successful fundraising campaign that brought in nearly $2.5 million, construction began on the new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department at Benefis.

• We Care! We Share!, the annual employee giving campaign at Benefis, raised a record-breaking $518,165. It also had the highest-ever percentage of employee participation—55 percent!

These achievements added to an already exciting year at Benefis Health System,

which celebrated 125 years of providing quality healthcare to residents of Northcentral

Montana in 2017. The advancements made over the last century in medical care and

technology at Benefis simply would not have been possible without philanthropy and

the tremendous support of our community.

As we face the uncertain future of healthcare in our country, the importance of

philanthropy will be even greater. We are fortunate to have such compassionate donors

that continually give to the Benefis Foundation so that others may heal.

Thank you for making philanthropy such an important part of your life. I hope you will

join us in celebrating the Benefis Foundation’s 20th Anniversary throughout 2018—two

decades and countless lives touched because of donors like you.

Supporting Children and FamiliesOur gratitude is endless for the thousands of donors who support the programs that help children and families facing illness and tragedy.

Your gifts bring love and light during the darkest times and make life seem more bearable for these families experiencing the unimaginable.

There really aren’t words that accurately convey how thankful we are to the Angel Fund donors for providing this assistance. It really was a boost of encouragement when we needed it most. This is truly a wonderful program that shines a light when it feels like there isn’t one. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” - Mom from Havre, MT

The 221 Children’s Fund was created to be a “brother fund” to the Angel Fund, assisting families with medical expenses, prescriptions, and other healthcare needs.

The Angel Fund was truly a godsend. We desperately needed financial assistance to help defray the cost of travel and motel stays when my daughter received treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital. The gift took away a tremendous amount of stress and allowed us to focus on my daughter’s medical needs and care. Thank you, dear angels. You are a blessing we will never forget. - Mom from Browning, MT

This financial assistance has helped my family immensely. What you are doing is pure kindness. You are helping families like mine who are not only struggling with the emotional rollercoaster of special needs, but who are also struggling financially. Because of your help, we are able to get the treatments and therapies our baby girl needs, and she is improving more than anyone thought possible. Because of you. - Mom from Chester, MT

Your gifts helped these 69 families with travel and lodging costs when they had to travel out of town, often on very short notice, so their sick children could receive specialized care.

Camp Francis helps kids ages six through 12 cope with the death of a significant person in their life. These 34 kids spent the week connecting with other children who share that experience of losing someone they love. Because of donors like you, they learned together how to heal and let go of their grief in a safe, supportive place.

34 children attended Camp Francis in the mountains near Monarch in June 2017.

Continued Investments in Cancer CareThanks to the hundreds of donors who gave a total of $8.9 million to establish Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute thirteen years ago, the institute has brought hope to those who hear the frightening words: you have cancer.

Donors to the Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute continue to play a vital role in making the latest cancer treatment options available to patients in our region.

Holistic Care


In November, we celebrated a remarkable milestone at Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute — the 10,000th patient received care since the institute opened in 2005.

Our generous donors are to thank for reaching this monumental milestone. The beautiful building and the compassionate care that is provided within its walls and beyond make it a truly special place for cancer care. Your gifts inspire courage and bring peace and hope to our patients and their families.

Donors make it possible for patients at SCI to receive care that focuses on the whole person – mind, body, and spirit.

Beyond the sophisticated medical treatments, patients at SCI receive comprehensive care that includes a broad range of support services, from support groups for patients and families, to access to the Cancer Resource Center—a complete library of cancer-related materials.

Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute

(SCI) patients underwent a total of 18,489 radiation oncology procedures in 2017.


There was a

total of 28,080 medical oncology visits at SCI throughout 2017.

28,080 SCI patients utilized the Image Center 801 times throughout 2017. Donors like you helped

these cancer patients cope with the visible effects of cancer treatment with a range of support services, from spa, skincare, and makeup consultations and products, to wigs, hats, and scarves.


More than $1,066,703 of donor-raised funds was disbursed in 2017 to help fund the advanced treatment, technology, and compassionate care that SCI is known for.

$1,066,703In 2017, SCI patients received 71 sessions of Naturopathic services in Great Falls.

Through donor support, we are able to bring providers from the Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic to Great Falls to administer Naturopathic services for our cancer patients. This additional measure of care offers a holistic approach to the care or recovery of our patients.71

$1 million of donor-raised funds helped SCI purchase the Varian EDGE™ Radiosurgery System, the first in Montana and surrounding five-state area.

The Varian EDGE features advanced technology that allows for increased accuracy when treating tumors that move when a patient breathes, such as tumors in the lungs or abdomen. The EDGE can target and treat tumors and other abnormalities in the brain, spine, lung, and other difficult to treat areas.

Patients can receive non-invasive, high-precision treatments with the EDGE in a fraction of the time of previous treatments.

A radiosurgery procedure that previously took 30 to 90 minutes can now be completed in 5 to 20 minutes with the Varian EDGE. – Dr. Berna DeMalignon, SCI Radiation Oncologist

Donor contributions made it possible for the $6,000 purchase of the Sara Lift in 2017, a machine that is critical for patient safety and comfort.

If patients have limited mobility or are confined to a wheelchair, the Sara Lift supports and lifts them to a standing position with mechanical assistance, and can also measure patient weight.

Life-SavingEmergencyCareYou never realize how important the emergency department (ED) is until you need it. Each year, Benefis Health System provides vital emergency care to nearly 34,000 people—working day and night to save lives.

Thanks to the support of generous donors, a new, cutting-edge emergency department is being built at Benefis and is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.


Page 13: Generosity Heals - Benefis

$527,000 2017The Benefis Foundation’s signature fundraising event, Mayfaire, raised more than $527,000 in 2017 to support the capital campaign for the new ED.

For the last 18 years, Mayfaire has raised funds through a charity golf tournament at the Meadow Lark Country Club and evening gala at the Mansfield Convention Center to benefit a specific cause that enhances healthcare services at Benefis.

In June, ground was officially broken, and construction began on the new ED. Donors have contributed nearly $2.5 million to the project, helping to ensure the future of world-class, life-saving emergency care for years to come.

The size of the ED will be nearly doubled through both new construction and remodeling. The innovative design will allow more efficient and patient-friendly care with shorter wait times.

Donors are making several enhancements possible:

• High-tech equipment and the flexibility to accommodate future technological advancements

• More than 30 rooms will be significantly larger than the current 18 rooms

• Enclosed ambulance garage with drive- through access

• New helipad with space to land two helicopters

Commitmentto QualityCareThe Benefis Foundation’s generous donors make it possible to provide innovations in patient care, equipment, facilities, and technology beyond what Benefis, as a not-for-profit health care organization, can do alone. Philanthropy makes the difference between basic facilities and a comprehensive health system that is truly world class.

In 2017, gifts made by Benefis Foundation donors were imperative to the continuous improvement in healthcare services at Benefis.

I feel very lucky to have won this scholarship. I have always known I wanted to help others by working in the medical field. It is humbling to know that there are people out there who want to help students like me achieve their dreams. – Cori Enseleit, MSU College of Nursing student

In-home massages • two new recliners • massage chair • microwave • refrigerator • clothes dryer • specialty bed that can tilt and rise in order to protect patients and keep them comfortable.

It is because of the generosity of donors that Benefis Peace Hospice creates a compassionate environment for terminal patients and their families.

Supporting Benefis employees’ growth and further development of skills is crucial to providing high quality and compassionate care for our patients. Thank you, donors, for helping to give our friends, families, and neighbors the care they deserve.

More than $17,000 was used to purchase equipment for the Labor and Delivery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) departments at Benefis, including:

• OAE Otodynamics Otocheck—a device used to conduct non-invasive sophisticated hearing tests on babies born in the NICU.

• Wireless fetal monitor—allows greater mobility for mothers during labor while maintaining the safe and accurate monitoring of the baby’s heartrate, mother’s heart rate, and contraction spacing.

Donors contributed $150,000 to the Benefis Health System laboratory renovation and expansion project in 2017.

The amount of donor-raised funds used to help Benefis employees receive continuing education and specialty training totaled $17,949 in 2017.

The new Benefis lab features increased efficiencies and state-of-the-art technology that produces faster, more consistent results.

In 2017, the Benefis Foundation awarded 42 college students from Great Falls and the surrounding areas $71,500 in healthcare scholarships.

The Healthcare Scholarship Program helps dozens of students every year pursue a degree, certification, or advancement in a medically related field.

Spirit of Generosity at Benefis Health SystemEvery year, Benefis Health System employees demonstrate their incredible generosity and compassion by participating in the We Care! We Share! giving campaign.

Benefis employees understand that when they contribute to their favorite Benefis Foundation fund or other local nonprofit organization, they can make a significant difference in the lives of their patients, neighbors, and coworkers in need.

was raised and We Care! We Share! had the highest-ever percentage of employee participation - 55%!

to its endowment fund.




$68,467 109wasdistributed to



Giving to the We Care! We Share! Campaign is very important to me because I have watched co-workers and my employees go through terrible grief-stricken periods when funds are tight and family members are in need of help. A small amount can make such a difference when someone is in crisis. It means a lot to me to be able to contribute to those in need. –Debbie Schmid, Endoscopy Supervisor

I can’t say thank you enough for helping me and my girls. All of the donors are truly angels. They are the most caring people I have ever come across. Thank you to all that donate to Caring For Our Own. You have touched my life. – Benefis employee

From significant travel costs due to the loss of a loved one, to losing their home and belongings to fire, our fellow employees have experienced a wide range of personal hardships that have been helped by the Caring For Our Own fund.
