Ways to Give

Whether you have a sizable estate or a modest accumulation of assets, giving is a personal choice and an important investment decision. By including PH in your financial or estate plans, you leave a legacy that can help ensure that quality healthcare will continue for generations to come. We offer many ways you can give:

  • The Gift of Health – Grateful Patient Program, an easy way to say “thank you” to the PH physician, nurse or caregiver who made a difference to you or a family member. The person whom you are honoring will receive a letter of gratitude from the PH Administration.
  • Tribute and Memorial Gifts, which are meaningful ways to honor family, friends and special occasions. We will send a personal letter to the honoree or honoree’s family to inform them of your thoughtful gift. The gift amount will not be disclosed.
  • Endowments and Named Gifts are when you lend your name, or the name of another individual, to a building or department to help ensure the long-term growth of our research and clinical care programs. Please contact us to discuss available opportunities that are closely aligned with your interests.
  • Event Sponsorships such as for our golf tournament and gala event.
  • Employee Giving Program
  • Path to Progress Brick Program
  • Annual Support

Planned Giving

Since its founding, our hospital has been closely integrated with the community around us and the patients we are privileged to serve. In fact, every patient is touched by the generosity of others - not just by a compassionate and talented medical staff, but by the donors whose generosity supports these dedicated professionals. Through initiatives in clinical areas, research and facilities, the impact of philanthropy can be felt throughout our hospital.

If you would like to share that impact, please let us know how we can help bridge your interests and needs, by working with you to create a gift plan that makes sense for you. There are many ways to do this: an outright cash gift; IRA qualified distributions; gifts of property or life insurance; charitable trusts; or as a beneficiary in your will. It’s our privilege to be a resource for information and help you consider your legacy at Putnam Hospital. 

If you have questions about how to include the hospital in your will or tax-wise giving strategies, please use our Resource Library button (below) or contact Laura Eldridge, CFRE, Director, Planned Giving at (203) 739-7056.
