Let Us Know

Thousand Cranes Endowed Chair

At Providence Trinity our endowed chair supports and encourages the expansion of emotional intelligence and mindfulness practice for patients, families, and healthcare providers dealing with pain and serious illness.

The Thousand Cranes endowment was established to transform healthcare culture toward whole person care by providing the resources and curriculum to widely share our experience and expertise. 

The Thousand Cranes Endowed Chair provides:

  • More intensive training for caregivers and opportunities to learn more about supporting the special needs of young patients
  • Support in developing emerging curriculum for addressing the unique needs of our youngest palliative care patients
  • Training, seminars and workshops to add greater emphasis on the benefits of mindfulness
  • The support of resiliency in our caregivers to mange stress and anxiety through meditation

Honor a Caregiver

Families often wonder, “How can I ever thank you?”

Thank a doctor, nurse, chaplain, social worker, volunteer or other caregiver who touched your life with kindness or the life of your family and loved ones in a time of need.

You can make a charitable donation in their honor to the Providence TrinityCare Foundation. The person(s) you recognize as a Guardian Angel will be presented a distinguished pin to wear proudly as a symbol of your gratitude.

Your contribution not only honors a Caregiver but also supports our mission and makes it possible for us to provide compassionate care to all.

Mission Makers

Providence TrinityCare caregivers, demonstrate their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others through their work and compassionate care of every patient and family each day. Employees at TrinityCare make their impact even greater through charitable contributions in support of our much needed services.

If you are a caregiver, we hope you will join the hundreds of employees making gifts in support of the Providence TrinityCare. It's easy and convenient to make a gift.

Donations through automatic payroll deduction start at just $5 per pay period. One time gifts can also be made online by credit card or by simply writing a check.

"The Providence TrinityCare Foundation supports so many aspects of our hospice and palliative care services and I wanted to do my part to give back. The Mission Makers program has been an easy way to do so through their payroll deduction option."

If you are already a Mission Maker and would like to increase or change your payroll donation, please contact us.

Matching Gifts

Companies of all sizes match donations their employees make to nonprofits because it’s an easy, structured way for them to support good work in their communities. Corporate social responsibility, is an important factor in how the public perceives brands and companies these days. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees.

"I asked our HR department about our company matching gift program and was able to apply for a match of my recent donation to Providence TrinityCare Foundation all online. It was really easy!"

Please check with your employer (typically the HR or payroll department) to see if your company has a matching gift program.

Stocks & Bonds

Many donors make gifts of appreciated securities because they can avoid paying capital gains tax and take a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities (if owned for at least one year). It is suggested to not donate securities worth less than you paid for them as it may be better to sell the stock, report your loss for tax purposes, then donate the cash proceeds.

Securities held less than one year may be donated, but your charitable tax deduction will be limited to your cost basis. Though there may be advantages to giving short-term property with little or no appreciation, you should discuss this with your own tax adviser.

Gifts of stock you have owned for more than a year are deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) every year. If held for less than a year, they are deductible up to 50% of your AGI every year. Excess deductions may be carried over for five years after the year of gift.

"Making a gift of appreciated securities was a great way to avoid capital gains, get an income tax deduction and support Providence TrinityCare, and, I did it all without leaving my desk!"

Please email us or give us a call to make a gift of stock today!  We will be happy to provide you transfer information upon request.
