There are many different ways to show your support to the Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation.
Donors have an opportunity to give to the AGH Foundation through direct mail requests, special events and other methods. Annual gifts support both our projects, as well as operations of the Foundation.
Memorial and Honor Gifts
Honoring or remembering someone who has made an important difference in your life is a wonderful way to help others. Making a donation in someone’s name can be a very meaningful way of “paying it forward” to help others now and for generations to come.
Gifts in-kind are always welcome and can take many forms. The Foundation is willing to assist the donor with any gifts made of real estate or any other qualified, non-cash asset.
Some individuals and organizations are able to help make significant gifts (usually $5,000 or more) to help with a significant project or program to enhance the care that is provided through Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital or the Allegan Healthcare Group. A major gifts initiative committee has been formed to invite donors and prospects to consider helping in this manner. Recent major gifts have helped to grow our ability to give scholarships for higher education studies in health care, to design and build new health care facilities, to acquire necessary medical equipment for state-of-the-art care, and more.
Planned Giving/Wills and Bequests
There are many ways to give through a bequest in one’s will, or through a range other options as part of an estate plan gift. A gift can be made through simple language included as part of a will. One can provide for their loved ones, and also provide for charitable gifts through the many available ways to give. Please consider letting us know your intention for a gift through your will or estate through a simple “Letter of Intent for Estate or Planned Gift.” Completing and sending this form to us does not obligate you to a planned gift. It is simply a declaration of your intent to provide for Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital or the Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation through your will or other estate plan documents. A copy of this form can be mailed to: Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation, 555 Linn Street, Allegan, Michigan 49010. We would be glad to help with ideas or resources to assist you and your professional advisor (attorney, trust officer, etc.) with simple bequest language or other planned giving information. If you would like, we can also suggest a professional advisor familiar with planned giving options to help you, and discuss options in greater detail.
For more information on ways to give, please contact the Foundation or call
