Ways to give

Unrestricted Funds

These gifts provide flexibility to meet the most urgent needs of the medical center. The donations are used wherever the need is greatest. Unrestricted funds are utilized following approval by the medical center's leadership and the foundation's board of directors.

Memorials and Honorariums

This is a wonderful way to remember and honor loved ones and friends. You can memorialize someone special in your life while helping those in need. Donations can be unrestricted, or can be given for a specific department, area of need, or to a designated fund.

Endowments and Major Gifts

An endowment is a simple, yet meaningful way, for a charitable organization to grow and better serve its community. A donor makes a gift of an endowment. The gift is then invested by the organization to generate annual income, while the original contribution is preserved. That principal increases its value through investment. Only a percentage of the endowment's value is used annually to help fulfill the organization's mission.

Charitable Bequests

Bequests are financial gifts that are made through wills, and are a way of providing long-term support to an organization. A provision is made in your will or living trust that provides all or a portion of your estate to pass on to a charitable organization. If you wish to establish a charitable bequest, speak with an attorney to define the terms of your will or living trust.

Employee Giving Program

"Caring for Our Community" is the employee giving program at Mile Bluff. It is a great way for employees to directly assist Mile Bluff in carrying out its mission.
