Matching gifts occur when a company matches the charitable contribution of an employee to a nonprofit organization. If you (or your spouse) work for a matching gift company, your gift may be doubled, or even tripled. The matching gift procedure is very simple. The employee gets a matching gift form from their human resources department. After completing the form, the employee sends it along with their gift to HSHS Medical Group. (You may also send in the form after you have made the gift.) HSHS Medical Group confirms on the form that it has received the gift and meets the company’s guidelines for receiving a matching gift. HSHS Medical Group then returns the form to the company. The company verifies eligibility of the employee and sends a check to HSHS Medical Group. For more information, please call our office at 217-814-5177. 

Gifts of any size to HSHS Medical Group can be made in honor or in memory of someone. Donors make gifts to remember a loved one, to recognize a physician or another caregiver or to celebrate a special occasion. If you wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, please include the name of the person as well as the contact information (name and address) for any person who we can notify of your thoughtfulness.

Gifts Made Through a Will

A charitable bequest is a gift made from an estate, after death, or as a result of instructions outlined in a will. Bequests can be of a specific dollar amount, a specific asset or assets or for a percentage of an estate. If you choose to give a gift to HSHS Medical Group through your will, you can make your bequest available for our immediate use or you may restrict it to endowment. With endowment gifts, a portion of the investment earnings are used to fulfill the stated purpose of the gift. The proper way to list HSHS Medical Group in your estate is: HSHS Medical Group, a division of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis Foundation, Inc., 800 E. Carpenter St., Springfield, IL 62769.

Charitable trusts are gifts that allow you to receive ongoing income from an asset. They provide donors with regular cash payments, current charitable income tax deduction, avoidance or reduction of estate taxes and elimination of money-management concerns. Named charitable recipients would receive the remainder of assets upon death.

An endowment is an amount of money that is given to HSHS Medical Group with a stipulation that the funds are invested to earn annual interest rather than spent immediately. A portion of the annual earnings is used to support programs within HSHS Medical Group. An endowment can be restricted to a specific purpose or unrestricted to be used for the greatest need. Named endowments are a gracious way to honor a loved one or a family name. A minimum of $10,000 is required to establish a named endowment.

Patients and their families often express their gratitude for excellent care through kind words, prayers, smiles, letters of thanks and financial contributions. You can honor the physician, nurse or colleague who made a difference in you or your loved one’s life with a contribution of any amount today. 

Along with their recognition gift, grateful patients shared:
“I absolutely love my doctor and her office. The ladies at the front desk for check-in are so friendly and helpful. The nurses are very understanding and listen to my concerns. My doctor listens and explains everything. She never rushes me and answers all my questions.”


“This was an excellent experience. There was no wait time and staff were friendly, responsive, and extremely competent. My doctor is an extremely engaged doctor. He listens, responds to concerns and explains everything very clearly. This office visit was the best I have had in a long time.”


“This office is fantastic in all ways, from walking in the door until the time you leave. All colleagues, doctors, nurses, and clerks are excellent.”
