Ways to Give

Mission Health, as a locally-owned and governed not-for-profit health system, offers world-class care with incredible compassion. In just the past few years, we’ve made an incredible impact on our community: we have significantly reduced all-cause harm for our patients and decreased mortality by more than 40% system-wide.We’ve expanded access to the most vulnerable in our communities, created new virtual care options and impacted many tens of thousands of lives. Last year alone, we provided more than $150 million in direct community benefit.

But the only way we are able to offer this level of care is through the generous support of our Mission Health family and community donors.Please consider giving back to Mission Health’s critical funding needs, there are many ways to invest in Mission Health.

Legacy Gifts

Legacy gifts are planned and strategic charitable investments that can provide you with important tax benefits now and in the future. Your planned gift also gives you the satisfaction of supporting the excellent patient care, education and research programs of Mission Health.

Legacy giving options are summarized below:

  • Charitable Bequests - including one of Mission’s hospitals in your will and other estate plans generously supports our mission of healing for years to come.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts - often incorporated into long-term plans to transfer wealth to children or grandchildren. A charitable lead trust provides important current support to the Mission Health Department of Philanthropy and also helps donors greatly reduce their estate and gift taxes when wealth is passed on to heirs.
  • Life-Income Gifts - gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and the pooled income funds. These gifts provide donors with an income stream, significant tax savings and the satisfaction of supplying a Mission Department of Philanthropy with vital long-term philanthropic resources.

We can provide you and/or your professional advisor with detailed information on the planned giving options that can most effectively meet your financial needs.

To arrange a confidential discussion with a specialist in legacy giving, without obligation, please contact Angela Anderson at (828) 213-1089.

Memorial gifts help remind us of those we have lost. When you make a gift to a Mission Department of Philanthropy in memory of someone, we will send a letter to a person you designate (keeping the amount confidential) or, if you prefer, you can send a note personally.

Honor gifts are a wonderful way to acknowledge special people or life events such as an important holiday, birthday, anniversary or arrival of a new baby. A donation in honor of the recipient will make a difference in the life of a patient, child or local family.

Matching Gifts

Thousands of companies nationwide will match an employee's charitable contribution sometimes doubling or even tripling the amount of the original gift. In some cases, companies will even match gifts made by retired employees. Securing a matching gift from your employer is an easy way to increase the value of your gift to the Foundation for Mission Health. The human resources department of your employer can tell you more about its matching gift policy and how you can request a matching gift for your favorite charities.
