Opportunities to Give
Memorial & Honor Gifts
A charitable donation can be a wonderful, meaningful way to honor a special person. Families and friends have memorialized loved ones. Companies and co-workers have honored retirees. Gifts have been given on behalf of "the person who has everything." Gifts have been given to fund specific hospital services which have particular meaning to the donor. These gifts receive special attention in our Annual Report, and may qualify for an engraved Leaf on our Tree of Life.
Through gifts in wills, life insurance policies with the hospital as the benefactor, and other such planned gifts, individuals can ensure that their charitable spirit lives on. Individuals of all income levels can maximize their charitable giving while strategically managing their finances. We would be happy to provide you with more information about the many benefits of planned giving.
The Tree of Life
The "Tree of Life" is a beautiful maple tree sculpture in the hospital lobby. It is a striking piece of art which displays the names of major donors and those who have been honored by major gifts. The "Tree of Life" consists of a hand-carved maple trunk and branches. It has 300 engraveable brass "leaves" which commemorate gifts of $1,000 or more. At the base of the tree are 12 engraveable "stones" to honor gifts of $5,000 or more. These gifts may be made as cash donations or as pledges for up to three years.
Many employers will match charitable donations made by their employees. Please let us know if your employer will match your gift.
