Restoring the Warrior Spirit
Veterans and their families founded the Magnus Veterans Foundation, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The organization’s founders have over one hundred years of combined military service, most of which are within Special Operations Forces.
Our dedicated team understands the profound impact that war and military service has on veterans and their families. They include physicians, licensed professionals, veteran families, community leaders, and military service advocates.
We pledge to devote our professions and leadership to the Magnus Mission by creating a comprehensive care clinic specialized in veteran health and performance.
Heal and honor our veterans and their families through community fellowship and a comprehensive approach to restoring the body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Fully restore the Warrior Spirit by bridging the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.
Introducing the Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus (MVWC)
Magnus Veterans Wellness Campus, the most comprehensive approach to veteran and veteran family health and wellness to date, opened its doors on June 1, 2021. The MVWC is on the grounds of a serene and beautiful 37-acre estate in Dayton, MN. The campus includes a medical and psychological health clinic, a gym with Life Fitness equipment, mindfulness and artistic spaces.
Ongoing fundraising community engagement venues are designed to support MVWC memberships and bring members and the surrounding communities together. Our professional staff provide our Five Performance Pillar programming while volunteers are the building blocks to fully connect the community with the people who have served our country. Magnus not only provides exemplary life-saving care for the members who need it, we also get to know all of our members to create an atmosphere of inclusion with a sense of belonging to celebrate all those who have honorably served our country, Vet and family. We are uniquely – Magnus.
