Honorary & Memorial Gifts

Many of the gifts made to the Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation are honorary and memorial gifts. You may choose to make a gift in memory of a loved one who received services from Spencer Hospital, or you may also make a gift in honor of someone who has made an impact on your life. These loving tributes provide lasting benefits to the communities served by the hospital. Just fill out the memorial or honor gift information in the online donation form.

Gifts that cost nothing during your lifetime

Gift planning allows you to align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans. Some common methods are including the Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation in your will, naming the hospital as beneficiary on your life insurance policy, and setting up charitable trusts that benefit Spencer Hospital.

Gifts that secure the future

When you give to the Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation’s endowment fund you are providing permanent, ongoing support to Spencer Hospital. Your donation is invested into a fund designed to grow, and each year a distribution is made from the endowment to support the greatest needs of Spencer Hospital.

Would you like an added tax benefit to giving?

Through our partnership with the Clay County Community Foundation, donors to our endowment fund held with the community foundation qualify you for a 25% State of Iowa tax credit, in addition to the normal federal charitable tax deduction, on your gift. For questions on this opportunity please contact the SRH Foundation.
