Commemorative Naming Opportunities Tribute Program


"I want to honor a loved one."

Throughout the year gifts are accepted for:

  • Gifts in Honor - A gift is a thoughtful way of honoring birthdays, anniversaries, births, or someone that brightened your life.

  • Gifts in Memory - A gift to remember a loved one.

Each December a Christmas light is illuminated on the roof line of the hospital and clinic for each Light of Love Tribute Gift given to the Foundation that year.


"I want to make sure my donation lasts." 

Endowment Fund - Make a donation and direct it to our Endowment Fund.  A permanent endowment fund has been established, through which only the annual earnings are used for advancing and improving healthcare provided by West Holt Medical Services.  As the endowment grows, so will our quality of life for families today and future generations.


"I want to show my appreciation for the care I received."

Grateful Patient Program - A gift to the Foundation is an appropriate and meaningful way to say "thank you" for the special efforts of a doctor, nurse or other staff member who was part of your care team.  A starfish pin is given to the employee to wear as a symbol for their dedication and passion for what they do.


"I want to save lives without touching my income"

Planned Gifts

There are a wide variety of ways to provide a gift through planned giving. Planned gifts can include charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and many other arrangements, each of which has specific tax advantages that may be pertinent to your circumstances.  In some cases, gifts can be made that will yield income now and in the future to you or someone you designate. Those that designate WHMSF in their will or as a beneficiary, with their permission, will be a member of our Legacy Society.

Special Events Donations

The Foundation hosts special fundraising events each year and needs corporate sponsors, in-kind gifts to offset cost of event, or you may donate a high-value item to an event auction, such as a gift certificate, piece of artwork, vacation home, signed memorabilia, etc, for our golf tournament's silent auction.


The Dream Team - Employee Giving

Employees know first hand how donations make a difference, that is why many employees are generous donors.  The Dream Team allows employees to direct their dollars where they feel they will make the most difference.  Employees may utilize payroll deductions as a way to give all year long.


Gifts of Grain or Gifts of Livestock

For many cash basis farmers, significant tax savings can be achieved by donating crops or livestock directly to the Foundation.  View the five simple steps to making a gift of grain by clicking here.

Gifts of Appreciated Assets

You can make a gift of appreciated securities or real estate, which often provides a significant tax savings to you and at the same time benefits the Foundation. You receive a tax deduction for the current market value of security or real estate, while avoiding payment of capital gains tax.
