Other Ways to Give

Cash Donations
We always welcome a cash or check donation from people interested in supporting the Gunnison Valley Health System.

In Kind Donations
We welcome and appreciate donations that can help our patients, their families and staff. If you are interested in donating an item (furniture, equipment, or art) to the health system, please contact the foundation. You may also call to inquire about our prioritized needs.

Grateful Patient
The Grateful Patient Program provides an opportunity for you to share your story with us. From compassionate nursing care to skilled clinical treatment, the Grateful Patient program allows you to recognize our staff and thank them for their work. Through the program you can also give to support efforts such as nursing education, and further the already superb care available to our community.

Sponsor an Event
The Gunnison Valley Health Foundation hosts a number of events throughout the year to help raise funds for the health system. We welcome community involvement and look forward to seeing you at one of our social or sporting events. You can give to the health system and have fun at the same time!

Major Gifts
Gifts of $20,000 or more in support of a clinical program or capital project to Gunnison Valley Health System are crucial to our fiscal health. GVH relies heavily on the generosity of donors to continue our mission. You may contact the Foundation office to learn more about major gift opportunities.

Endowed funds ensure the superiority of care provided by Gunnison Valley Health System. They supplement operating support and allow programs to develop and grow. Endowed funds support clinical programs, education and advocacy. The interest earned is available year after year, benefitting our patients and their families in perpetuity. Endowed funds may be established with a gift of $50,000 or more.

Planned Giving
Planned Giving provides a wonderful opportunity to make a significant donation to the Gunnison Valley Health System, while providing a tax benefit or lifetime income for loved ones or ourselves. Planned gifts may be made with cash, but many are made by donating other assets such as stocks, real estate, art pieces, or business interests. Often planned gifts are bequests made through your will, but other methods include charitable trusts and charitable gift annuities.

Making a planned charitable gift usually requires the assistance of an attorney or financial advisor to help structure the gift appropriately. Please contact the Foundation with questions about how you may leave your legacy at Gunnison Valley Health. If you have already chosen to do so, please contact the GVH Foundation and let us know so we may thank you in person!

Naming Opportunity
The Gunnison Valley Health Foundation works with individual donors to design corporate or individual recognition opportunities for major gifts. If you are interested in a naming opportunity, please contact us.

Employee Giving
The High Peaks Program is an opportunity for employees to invest back in to their community on a monthly basis. The funds donated go back in to employee programs annually.
