Consider a yearly, tax deductible donation to the Foundation.
Contributions to the endowment fund are invested for the long-term growth of Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics. The Foundation’s goal is to reach one million dollars in the endowment. One this has been achieved, only the interest and dividends from the investments will be used to fund capital projects and equipment for the hospital. The principle will remain invested as a perpetual fund to provide benefits to the hospital and clinic for years to come. Individuals may choose to donate directly to the endowment. All Tree of Life donations, undesignated donations and 10 percent of all earnings from Foundation fundraising events are placed into this fund.
By planning today, you can make a difference tomorrow! Whether you are age 20 or 90, nearly everyone needs a will. A will allows you to: plan for the well-being of your loved ones, customize bequests to family members (such as a trust for children), ease your mind knowing your wishes will be fulfilled and make a difference for future generations by leaving a gift to a charitable organization, such as Moundview’s Memorial Healthcare Foundation.
If you choose to leave a future gift to the Foundation, please notify us. We would appreciate an opportunity to personally express our gratitude. Before making a planned gift, consult your financial advisor to determine the best ways to match the needs of your family and make your contribution to the Foundation. Bequests can range from giving a specific amount, specific property, a percentage of your assets or providing a gift from the residue of your estate after providing for your benefactors.
