Ways to Give
Although monetary donations are always appreciated, there are many other ways you can give to the Foundation, as listed below.
Grateful Patient Program
Maybe it was a smile, kind word or gesture which brought you or your loved one comfort. At MMH, patients often ask if there is a way for them to recognize caregivers who provided exceptional care during their stay. Through our Grateful Patient program, we invite you to make a monetary donation to the Health Foundation in your caregiver’s name. Click here to make a donation.
A gift given to celebrate, remember, honor or thank has special significance when it helps to improve the health and wellness of families in our communities. Individuals or family members of those you designate will be notified of your gift to the Foundation, but not the gift amount. You may also designate your gift to the fund of your choosing.
Event Sponsorship Opportunities
Each year, the Foundation sponsors a variety of events that improve the health and wellness of our communities. Each event provides a unique way to make a positive impact and enables us to support numerous programs and initiatives at MMH. Call 812.933.5141 or download the 2018 Event Sponsorship Guide to learn about event sponsorship opportunities.
Establish a Named Fund
A Named Fund is an excellent opportunity for families to establish a permanent fund in their name or in the name of someone they wish to honor or remember. It is a wonderful way to ensure their legacy or the legacy of their loved one lives on for generations.
For a pledge of $50,000 or more, a donor can establish a permanent endowment in their name (or in the name of someone they wish to honor remember). To be recognized, donors are asked to fulfill the greater of $20,000 or 20 percent of their total commitment, within the five-year pledge period, with the balance stipulated in writing through irrevocable means.
Upon establishing a Named Fund, the donor is able to select an area to which the annual spendable portion of the fund will be used. No money will be distributed from these funds until they have been fully funded for one full year.
