Directing Your Gift
You may want to contribute to the Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation because you have an interest in supporting a particular program, or because you want to help support outstanding, patient-centered programs at Skagit Regional Health. Because everyone has different interests, you have the options in directing your gift.
Unrestricted gifts give us the most flexibility to meet the needs of our patients. Restricted gifts are designated for a particular department or purpose within the hospital. Funds have been established to support the following areas:
- The Breast Institute
- Cancer Care
- Cardiac Care
- Cascade Valley Hospital
- Children's Therapy Program
- Community Education
- Dr. Maynard Johnson Endowment
- Family Birth Center
- Fine Art
- Foundation Support
- Healthy Communities
- Inpatient Palliative Care
- Kidney Dialysis
- Mental Health Center
- Skagit Regional Clinics
- Sunrise Inn
- Surgical Services/Endo
- Teaching Hospital Program
- Wound Healing Center
Some donors choose to create an endowment. This is a permanent fund, created with a gift of $10,000 or more, and usually named in honor of the donor. The principal remains invested, while the income generated by the endowment is used to support specific programs or needs of the hospital.
The Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation proudly recognizes its many generous supporters by adding their personal, business or family name to its beautiful recognition wall located inside Skagit Valley Hospital.
Donors giving a one-time gift or accumulative gifts of $500 or more are recognized. The wall recognizing the Foundation's generous supporters is updated on an annual basis. Our recognition wall is located in the main corridor of Skagit Valley Hospital.
