Sometimes individuals, families or organizations have the ability to make a larger gift. Sometimes it can be a very large gift. These gifts can be leadership gifts to inspire others to also give. They may be a “seed” to begin an important new program or service in caring for others. Some major gifts can even have a powerful, transformational ability to move an organization in an important new direction in fulfilling its mission. A major gift may be an outright gift, a gift given over time, or may be a “planned gift” through a will or bequest through an estate plan. Such a gift can have a wonderful impact for an entire community, and can sometimes be a help for generations. If you’d like learn more about opportunities through the Foundation for a major gift, or to talk about the possibility of making a major gift for the benefit of patients and their families through the hospital or the community, please contact or call the Foundation at (269) 686-4234.
