About Dean Foundation | Our Board of Directors

Who is Dean Foundation?

Dean Foundation was established in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by Dean Clinic physicians. In fact, 2016 marked our 30th year of serving Madison and the surrounding communities!


Through research, education, and care for the underserved, Dean Foundation touches lives in our community every day.

Currently, we're fulfilling our mission by:

  • Conducting ongoing research on medical advancements with grants/payment from universities, the National Institute of Health and pharmaceutical companies.
  • We also run the Benevolent Specialist Project's Free Clinic (BSP Free Clinic) three days a week, wherein volunteer specialists meet with patients referred to our clinic by their primary physicians to provide specialty care. Our patients are all uninsured or underinsured and have earnings that are at or below the 250% of poverty level.
  • We also support other programs designed to support the community's health such as a reading clinic, free memory screening and more. 


Dean Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Five slots on the board are filled by Dean physicians/shareholders and six are filled by community members. These community members represent the interest of the community and the public at large.

Scott Statz is the Foundation's Executive Director. Among his responsibilities are fundraising, programming and community outreach.

Over the past 30 years, Dean Foundation has earned a proud record of growth, development and expansion. Dean Foundation's dedicated staff, leadership and volunteers look forward to continued growth and opportunities to serve Southern Wisconsin. 

Thank you for your support!
