MINOT, N.D. • Trinity Health Foundation was recently awarded a $100,000 grant for the new Trinity Health Healthcare Campus and Medical District Capital Campaign from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

The funds will be specifically allocated to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) interview and exam rooms in the new Trinity Health Emergency Trauma Center (ETC). The two new spaces are completely private and allow the patient to remain in the same area for the duration of their time in the ETC providing a safe and confidential space during this traumatic experience. The new space also provides a bathroom, including a shower, for patients to perform personal hygiene activities, which is a new feature to the space.

Trinity Health partners with the Central Dakota Forensic Nurse Examiners (CDFNE) organization to provide proficient and compassionate care to victims of sexual assault in the region. In 2021, CDFNE saw 44 victims of sexual assault in Minot alone.

Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and satisfying lives. Funds are awarded within the categories of culture, education, health, and social service.

Trinity Health Foundation recently launched the HealthCare Campus and Medical District Capital Campaign to raise $15,000,000 to support the $520,500,000 project. In the early stages of the campaign, it raised $4,600,000. Donations are being sought from regional and national foundations, corporate donors, private donors, and Trinity Health staff through fundraisers.
