Members of the Bonner General Health Foundation Board presented a check for $132,000.00 to purchase equipment for Bonner General Health's new Ear, Nose, & Throat Clinic.

Our biggest fundraiser is our annual Heart Ball held each February. It features a three-course dinner, live auction, and dancing! Funds raised from this event directly benefit services provided at Bonner General Health.

We accept contributions from individuals, corporations and other organizations. All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Donors can request their gift be allocated for a specific purpose, or given as an unrestricted donation to be used where the need is the greatest. Gifts to the Foundation may be made in a variety of ways.
