Gift Giving

Anyone can give to the Foundation. Gifts are never too big or too small and come in many forms.

Types of gifts include:

  • Bequests - through a will or other form of estate plan, a deferred gift can express an appreciation beyond current means.
  • Beneficiary - designating the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance, an annuity, or a will, is a way to allow your gift to go beyond your lifetime.
  • Cash - always an acceptable donation in any amount.
  • Charitable Trust - various trusts can be used to extend the value to the donor and the Foundation.
  • Honarariums - gifts are often given in honor of another living friend, family member or community who has touched your life.  It's a concrete way to say, "thank you."
  • Memorials - many list the Foundation as the recipient of memorials after the death of a loved one.
  • Property - this can include a gift of securities, insurance policies, and real estate.  In a rural community it is quite common to include the Medical Center as a recipient of farm property. 
  • Securities - stocks, bonds and mutual funds can be donated.

As a 501(c) non-profit organization, gifts to the Greene County Medical Center Foundation can provide many tax-saving opportunities.  These can be discussed in more detail with your attorney or tax advisor.

Honoring Care Givers

If you would like to make a gift honoring a staff member who was particularly helpful to you, we will present that employee with a gold heart lapel pin and a letter of appreciation.

Donor Recognition

Every donor is recognized for his or her gift with a thank you.  We publish a bi-annual newsletter called "Always" (formerly "Milestones") and list all donors for the appropriate time frame.

A benefactor screen is prominently displayed in the lobby of the medical center, recognizing the following:

  • Benefactors - cumulative giving of $1,000 through $9,999
  • Special Benefactors - cumulative giving of $10,000 through $49,999
  • Distinguished Benefactors - cumulative giving of $50,000 through $99,999
  • Major Benefactors - cumulative giving of $100,000 or more

Any donor who funds a complete wing or major addition may participate in naming this portion of the medical center.
