The Bakken Invitation Award recognizes the work of those who improve communities and others’ lives.
A GLOBAL PHILANTHROPIC MOVEMENT
Bakken Invitation Honorees illustrate how advocacy and volunteerism can drive policy and societal change.
Honorees select a charity of their choice to receive a grant from the Medtronic Foundation, enhancing their patient advocacy and volunteer efforts.
Inspired by the work of Medtronic co-founder Earl Bakken, the Bakken Invitation Award promotes the work of patients who manage their own health and advocate for the health and well-being of others.
