Many of our supporters choose to make a gift in thanks for care received or in memory of a loved one.
You can designate your gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one on the online donation form or in the memo line of a mailed check. If an address is provided, we will send a letter to the family notifying them of your gift, although not the amount. All donors will receive a formal acknowledgement letter for tax purposes.
When arrangements are made with the funeral home and the newspaper, the wording most often used is "In lieu of flowers/gifts, contributions in memory/celebration of <NAME> can be made to: Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital Foundation"
Please call us if you have additional questions or wish to designate your gift to a particular fund.
The IRA charitable rollover is a great way to make a tax-free gift from your IRA. If you are over 70 and 1/2 years old, a charitable distribution made directly from your traditional or Roth IRA to Providence Milwaukie Foundation allowing you to make the gift without treating the distribution as taxable income.
Some of our most generous supporters are our own employees. Their service to our patients and to advancing the Mission of Providence is steadfast and unwavering. We know they give so much of themselves each day to ensure that our patients experience the excellent care and deep compassion for which Providence is known.
Please join us in celebrating these generous caregivers who give their time, talent and treasure to help advance research, health care and wellness at Providence. We celebrate you!
