Best Buy founder's charity pledges $5.5M to Children's Minnesota

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, the charity of Best Buy founder Dick Schulze, donated $4 million to the Minneapolis-based Children's Minnesota neurosciences program and committed another $1.5 million to a matching donation challenge for the pediatric health system.

The $4 million gift will support the health system's new pediatric hybrid intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging neurosurgery suite, according to a Jan. 10 Children's Minnesota news release.

The foundation also launched a $1.5 million matching challenge. If the community donates $1.5 million to the challenge, the Schulze Family Foundation will match the support to additionally fund the neuroscience program.

The new iMRI suite will allow the neurosciences and radiology departments to perform brain and spine scans mid-procedure in the same surgical space.
