Gifts & Recognition
Making a Gift
Your gifts grow, with a lasting impact you can see throughout the community and our legacy of care.
Whether you choose to advance our growth through memorial contributions, stocks, bonds, life insurance or by remembering IVCH in your will, your roots will help us sustain that tradition of uniting community values and extraordinary care. And because the IVCH Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization under the federal tax code, your gift is tax-deductible.
We can’t thank our donors enough, and we show our appreciation with small tokens including a personal letter from the Foundation president as well as acknowledgement in Health Scene, the IVCH quarterly newsletter. You also may qualify for two special donor opportunities: having a leaf or stone inscribed on the Tree of Life or a tile inscribed on the Commitment to Caring Donor Recognition Wall.
The Tree of Life
Prominently displayed on a wall in the IVCH West Street lobby, the Tree of Life offers a permanent way to remember gifts of $1,000 or more:
- A $1,000 gift allows you to have a leaf inscribed on the tree.
- A $15,000 gift will be remembered with an inscribed stone beneath the tree.
Commitment to Caring Donor Recognition Wall
Donors of $2,500 or more may choose to have an inscribed tile on the donor recognition wall in the East Addition:
- $25,000 for a 12" by 12" tile on the donor recognition wall and a recognition plaque in a room or area of the donor’s choice.
- $10,000 for a 12" by 12" tile on the donor recognition wall.
- $5,000 for an 8" by 8" tile on the donor recognition wall.
- $2,500 for a 4" by 8" tile on the donor recognition wall.
You can qualify for a leaf, stone or tile by donating one lump sum or several smaller payments. The Foundation office will take care of the paperwork for you. However you choose to give, a gift to the IVCH Foundation is a lasting way to honor relatives, friends or special events.
