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 Donation

A memorial donation creates a lasting legacy that honors a loved one by helping others.

Tribute Donation

Show appreciation and say thank you with recognition that makes a difference in the lives of others. Whether it’s gratitude for care from a doctor, nurse or other clinician, or a celebration for a birthday or anniversary, your donation is a meaningful way to pay tribute.

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.

Volunteer Donation

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.
