There are many ways you can help. Please consider one of the following gift methods.
Annual Giving provides an opportunity to make an ongoing annual commitment to Medina Hospital to enhance world-class care close to home. Every year, new and repeat donors make gifts of all sizes to the Foundation that help the hospital deliver high quality, compassionate care to thousands of patients.
Partners for Life Society
This annual giving club is comprised of individuals and corporations who make a gift of $1,000 or more to the Foundation over and above other gifts or sponsorships they may have made. Partners for Life are the pillars upon which the Foundation can support Medina Hospital.
Increase the value of your charitable gifts through corporate matching gift programs. Many employers offer opportunities to match gifts of their employees and retirees, including spouses. Please contact your human resources department to determine if your employer has a matching gift program and to obtain information regarding specific requirements.
Make a gift in memory or honor of loved ones or friends. Honorary gifts may also recognize the special care a patient has received. Contributions may celebrate any occasion - a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or holiday. When an honor or memorial gift is received, a special letter is sent to the person identified by you and the amount of the contribution is not revealed.
Medina Hospital Foundation facilitates engagement between the community and Medina Hospital through events and activities that raise critical funds. Your individual support or business sponsorship of our events engage the community in supporting the services and programs offered at Medina Hospital.
Gifts from your estate allow you to leave a legacy gift to Medina Hospital while retaining full control of assets during your lifetime. You may leave a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to Medina Hospital Foundation. We will work with you and your attorney to ensure that your plan fully reflects your wishes.
Bequest wording can be as simple as:
“I give and bequeath to The Medina Hospital Foundation, Medina, OH, (the sum of $___ or ___%) to support its exempt purposes (or insert name of program or project).”
Endowed Named Funds
Your gift to Medina Hospital Foundation can be permanently recognized when you establish an endowed named fund with a minimum gift of $100,000. An endowed named fund is a thoughtful and far-reaching way of fulfilling personal philanthropic wishes while helping ensure a sound future for Medina Hospital. Endowment funds offer lasting financial resources because of the income generated through careful investment management. A strong endowment enables the hospital to move forward with plans and projects, knowing that permanent resources are available to support new developments and programs.
A planned gift commitment provides the opportunity to make significant gifts while maintaining financial responsibilities. It affords you the opportunity to formalize estate planning, retain income with tax benefits, increase income for yourself and/or your beneficiaries and realize estate and capital gains tax savings.
Medina Hospital Foundation works with planned giving experts to maximize benefits while allowing you to support the Medina Hospital programs and services that are important to you. Learn more about planned gift opportunities.
Other Gift Options
