Opportunities for Giving
Changes in the health care environment have dramatically decreased the amount of funding available to hospitals, making the need for charitable giving more important than ever.
Often referred to as "deferred gifts," a bequest in one's will, a trust arrangement, life income gifts, or gifts of life insurance are among the ways donors may help ensure the excellence and vitality of Jennie Edmundson Hospital for future generations. Planned gifts may be restricted for special purposes such as capital expansion and equipment purchases, and also may be negotiated to endow operations of a department or a medical service. Endowments ensure the future of the Hospital because, by law, the principal is preserved "in perpetuity" and only the income is used to support annual needs.
Individuals and families may invest in the Hospital's strategic plans to initiate new services and programs, modernize infrastructure, advance technological capability with equipment purchases, and renovate or construct new space. Opportunities are numerous to permanently recognize donors whose generosity permits any of these visionary steps forward. We are always eager to meet with potential donors to explore the intersection of their philanthropic interests with the Hospital's needs.
The Foundation welcomes gifts of cash, contributions by credit card, and gifts of appreciated securities. Special arrangements may be made for those who wish to name the Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, gift real estate or artwork, or are interested in providing a gift in-kind.
All gifts are promptly acknowledged with the required tax information, and notification of tribute and memorial gifts is promptly sent to the person or family designated.
Checks are made payable to the Jennie Edmundson Hospital Foundation. Gift restrictions should be in writing and directed to the Director. Instructions for making a stock gift can be secured by calling the Foundation.
