Ways to Give

Your Support Makes a Difference

Patients, their families and our community depend on us to provide the highest level of care every day. Thanks to your philanthropic goodwill, you help make it possible.

As a nonprofit hospital system, we rely on both public funds and private contributions to meet the healthcare challenges of today and the future. While public funds address the most basic needs at University Health System, private contributions allow us to improve delivery of care to patients and support urgent healthcare needs outside of our budget.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Celebrate a life by making a memorial or tribute gift. A memorial gift offers a meaningful way to honor the memory of a loved one while also extending sympathy to the family. The family receives a special card that recognizes the honoree and the donor. A tribute gift celebrates a person on a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding or anniversary. A tribute gift is also a way of giving thanks to a physician, nurse or caregiver at University Health System. The honoree receives a special card that recognizes the honoree and the donor. The amount of your gift always remains confidential.

Make a Gift

Stock Donation

Gifts of stock and securities support our mission, while providing significant tax benefits for you. The tax advantages of stock and securities gifts include:

  • No capital gains tax when you give long-term appreciated securities to University Health System Foundation.
  • A charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock if it has been held for more than a year.
  • A deduction of the stock’s fair market value against a maximum of 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any excess deductions can be carried forward into as many as five additional tax years.

Donate Your Time

We have countless opportunities for you to volunteer. Sharing your time makes a difference in the lives of our patients, their families and our community.
