Mission & Purpose
“The mission of the Foundation, first and foremost, is to promote voluntary giving among the friends of the hospital. Whether for an immediate need or to meet a long-term goal, the Foundation solicits and utilizes gifts for specific use and gifts for unrestricted use in meeting the daily capital needs of the hospital. Additionally, the Foundation seeks to facilitate a better understanding, acceptance, and delivery of health care services at Girard Medical Center.”
It's an exciting time to be a part of the giving process to help our Hospital grow. Our annual gift contributions provide us with a strong base of support and we apply the funds where the need is greatest. We are your Hospital – and we need your help to continue to meet your healthcare needs and those of the people you love. A gift to Girard Medical Center is an investment in our community.
The hospital’s ongoing needs include:
• Special Projects
• Structural Improvements
Committed to Serve…The Hospital and Community
Through the contributions of individuals and businesses the Foundation is able to continue to help Girard Medical Center meet their needs, and the needs of the community each and every day. Whether to commemorate a loved one or help with a one-time donation, the Foundation has options to meet every intention.
Single-purpose gifts may be donated for the hospitals unrestricted use or for a specific purpose as designated by the donor.
Memorial gifts are often given in memory of close friends or family members. The family of the person memorialized is notified of the gift without mention of the amount. Some families appreciate a gift of this nature in their time of grief.
Honor gifts are those given in honor of close friends or family members. The person honored is notified of the gift without mention of the amount. These gifts are excellent birthday, anniversary, get well, or holiday gifts.
A planned gift is usually conveyed by a Will or Trust. A specified amount of cash, securities or property, or a portion of an estate may be given. Many times gifts of this nature are set up years in advance.
