Avera St. Luke's Foundation
The basis for our work is compassionate care through gifts, stewardship of their use, and growth of our regional health care. The role of Avera St. Luke's Foundation is one of encouraging and accepting gifts to supplement our programs.
Your gift will touch lives and assist in a mission that responds to God’s calling for a healing ministry for all those in need. Donations have provided life-saving medication, lodging to be near loved ones, transportation, educational programs and materials, and much more.
New Scholarship Opportunity!

Aberdeen's New Cancer Institute
The new Avera Cancer Institute Aberdeen will be a place of hope. A place to be honored as an individual, a patient, a survivor.
Let’s join together as a community and as partners with those living with cancer, to provide sanctuary and a place to turn to when in great need of healing. Learn how you can help.
