Dean Foundation: Who We Are

Dean Foundation was established in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 2014 marked our 28th 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.


Dean Foundation is governed by a volunteer, uncompensated 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.

In the past 28 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. We hope to have your support in this work!
