The Meaning of Going Grateful

The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation influences the world of cardiovascular health, but we couldn’t do it without our community partners, donors, staff, and physicians. MHIF research discovers hope for patients through new treatments and care practices to ensure the best outcomes for all kinds of heart and vascular conditions.

Hear stories on why we’re grateful for research, how it’s changed lives, and our need for continued support through the end of the year!

We're showing gratitude by celebrating:

  • Patients who continue to inspire us and demonstrate the importance of advancing care and outcomes.
  • Physicians who are our tireless partners in pursuing research, asking and answering critical questions to improve care for patients.
  • Our team at MHIF – a passionate and dedicated team who support our vision every day to create a world without heart and vascular disease.
  • Donors and community members like you, who support our work and mission.

Without you, innovative cardiovascular research and education simply isn't possible.
