Types of Giving

We offer several types of giving options. Review the types below and select the option that best suits your individual needs. No gift is too small or insignificant to help Sacred Heart HealthCare System advance its mission to help those most in need.

Annual Giving
An annual gift is an amount given yearly as a one-time donation or in monthly payments. Annual gifts can be restricted for a specific purpose designated by Sacred Heart HealthCare System, such as for a new facility or program, or they can be unrestricted and used by Sacred Heart HealthCare System where need is most immediate. Find out more information on annual giving, or read the annual giving brochure.

Tribute/Memorial Gifts
A tribute gift is a donation given to honor a living family member or a Sacred Heart HealthCare System caregiver. A memorial gift is a donation in memory of a loved one. When a gift is made in honor or in memory of someone, the donor’s recipient or the recipient’s family will be notified that a gift has been made to Sacred Heart HealthCare System in his or her honor or a loved one’s memory.

Planned Giving
Planned giving allows donors to name Sacred Heart HealthCare System as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift such as a will, trust, annuity, or life insurance policy. Planned giving often has tax implications and is usually planned in concert with a financial planner or advisor. View brochure.

Campaign Gifts
A campaign gift is a donation given for a particular purpose in a specified period of time. Sacred Heart HealthCare System may run a campaign to help fund a new program, facility, or purchase of equipment. Read more about our Capital Campaign.

In-Kind Gifts
An in-kind gift is not a monetary donation but rather a donation of items or services, such as office supplies, equipment, facility space, or staff time. The donor may place monetary value on an in-kind gift for tax purposes. If you are interested in making an in-kind donation for one of our event raffles, please contact Dianne Spengler at 610-776-4690 or dspengle@shh.org

Grateful Patient
The Grateful Patient Program not only ensures continued financial stability of the hospital through your donation, it also lets a special caregiver know that you are grateful for the care you received while at Sacred Heart. Read our brochure about the Grateful Patient program.

Gifts of Stock
You can receive significant tax savings by giving appreciated securities to Sacred Heart Hospital. For more information, please see our online stock transfer form or contact Jackie Jones at (610) 776-5906 or jjones2@shh.org.

If you have any questions about the different types of giving, please contact the Sacred Heart Foundation at 610-776-4874. We will be happy to discuss what giving options will work best for you.
