It is through our SHAREholders’ spirit of giving that Methodist Hospital Foundation provides community members with excellence in health care and health care education. Methodist Hospital Foundation’s donor recognition program demonstrates our appreciation for our dedicated, loyal donors.
The Heart & Dove Society recognizes donors whose lifetime giving totals $25,000 or greater. These special friends receive elegant bookends when they reach the $25,000 giving level. Members are recognized on the Heart & Dove Wall where their names appear on a series of glass plates of varying sizes, representing the amount of the donor’s giving level. The Heart & Dove Wall is located in a prominent area of Methodist Hospital, and is often visited by guests, patients and employees.
The Gifford Society recognizes special friends who remember Methodist Hospital Foundation in their estate plans. These friends have made gifts through a beneficiary designation in a will, trust, insurance policy, irrevocable life income arrangement, real estate or retirement plan. Each legacy will improve the quality of life for generations to come.
The Gifford Society is named in memory of one of the founding fathers of Methodist Hospital, Dr. Harold Gifford, Sr. His skillful touch and compassion towards his patients, as well as his generous giving spirit and vision for the future, led the way for excellence at Methodist Health System.
Named for the year in which Methodist Hospital was established, the 1891 Society recognizes the current giving of loyal donors who support the programs and projects of Methodist Hospital Foundation. We thank the following friends who have made a gift between February 1, 2012 and June 19, 2012.
Gifts from the Heart is a commemorative giving program for gifts made in honor or in memory of someone special. After a gift has been made, Methodist Hospital Foundation sends a letter of acknowledgement to the family of the one remembered or to the person honored so that they are aware of the special gift. Those honored or remembered with a Gift from the Heart are recognized in a commemorative album located at Methodist Hospital.
You may want to honor an individual through a gift that names a scholarship, a program, a building or a portion of a building. We are pleased to discuss donor recognition with you and customize opportunities suited to your wishes.
