Foundation - Ways to Give

There are many ways to provide support to the mission of the Greater Regional Healthcare Foundation. Your support and volunteerism is always appreciated. Monetary gifts to the Foundation are another important method. Whether large or small, each gift is important. Every dollar contributed goes directly to support the program or project the donor has requested.

Donations

A gift or pledge of cash, insurance policies, real estate, stocks, bonds or other property.

Memorials

Memorials are made to the Foundation as a thoughtful means to remember a loved one and become a part of helping others who are facing health concerns. Memorial gifts may be designated for where the need is greatest or for specific use by the medical center. All gifts, (unless requested to be anonymous) will be recognized and a note acknowledging your thoughtfulness will be sent to the family members if a name and address is provided.

Honor Gifts

Honor gifts are similar to memorials. An honor gift enables you to pay tribute to a person or group by making a donation in the person/group’s name. Honor gifts are also recognized and a note acknowledging your thoughtfulness will be sent to the honoree.

Wills and Bequests

You may provide for gifts to the Foundation in your will. A bequest could be a specific amount of money, a particular property, or a percentage of an estate. A charitable gift may mean substantial tax savings for your estate. This option should be explored with your personal attorney and/or financial planner.

Deferred Gifts

A deferred gift can enable you to make a generous gift and benefit financially at the same time. A deferred gift may create an opportunity for you to save on income, capital gains, and estate taxes. Consulting with your attorney and/or financial planner is advised. The Greater Regional Healthcare Foundation will provide a permanent source of funds to meet community health needs now and into the future. You can be assured that continual and perpetual benefits will continue to flow from your generosity. Your gift will be pooled with other gifts that will ensure maximum potential earning.

Recognition

Recognition of contributions is included each year in this annual report. In addition, contributions are recognized on the Honor Board located in the link between Greater Regional Medical Center and the Medical Arts Plaza and at the Hospice Home. A commemorative brick pathway at the Hospice Home is another opportunity to honor or remember a loved one.
