How often are we able to make a difference in the life of someone else? The Community Memorial Foundation helps you do just that. Giving a gift in any amount to the Foundation is a way of expressing gratitude for quality and professional healthcare experienced at Community Memorial, and it ensures a continuation of excellent healthcare in the future.  Every gift has a direct impact on the programs and services Community Memorial can continue to offer our patients, their families, and the community. Your one donation, combined with those of so many others, touches the lives of people who may need it most.

Endowment Fund

The endowment at Community Memorial Hospital has a current market value of over $500,000. The principal of the endowment fund is invested by the Board of Directors and remains untouched. However, a portion of the investment income earned annually is used to support the hospital for restricted or unrestricted purposes.

It is the goal of the Community Memorial Hospital Foundation to grow the endowment fund in the years ahead. A strong endowment will help to insure the financial stability of the hospital, particularly in these challenging times for healthcare institutions.

A named endowment fund provides recognition for a donor, or a person or persons designated by a donor, in perpetuity and supports the hospital in a meaningful way.

An endowment gift can be restricted (the donor determines how the endowment income can be used) or unrestricted (the endowment income can be used for general purposes).
