Dean Foundation

Dean Foundation was established in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Twenty-Eleven marked our 25th year of serving Madison and the surrounding communities!  We are dedicated to improving the health of our community through research, education and care for the underserved.  In the past 25 years, Dean Foundation has had a proud record of growth, development and expansion. Dean Foundation's Board of Directors, its Dean Health System supporters and friends, and the Foundation's dedicated staff look forward to continued growth and future opportunities to serve Southern Wisconsin.
