Gifts Made Through a Will

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 the HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Foundation. (You may also send in the form after you have made the gift.) HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital confirms on the form that it has received the gift and meets the company’s guidelines for receiving a matching gift. HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital then returns the form to the company. The company verifies eligibility of the employee and sends a check to the HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Foundation. For more information, please call our office at 920-451-7543.
An endowment is an amount of money that is given to the HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital Foundation 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 St. Nicholas Hospital. An endowment can be restricted to a specific department or unrestricted to be used for the greatest need. Named endowments are a gracious way to honor an individual loved one or a family name. A minimum of $10,000 is required to establish a named endowment. For more information on establishing an endowment, please call our office at 920-451-7543.
