Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a donation to the OSF Saint Elizabeth Foundation. The OSF Saint Elizabeth Foundation was established in 1994 to foster, promote, develop, encourage and accept funds for the purpose of supporting OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center.

With the challenges facing health care today, private gifts are increasingly important in allowing us to preserve and strengthen programs of excellence. Help support OSF Saint Elizabeth with a donation today!

In offering a donation, you are making an investment in the future of health care in Ottawa and its surrounding areas. In fact, you may be assured every dollar donated to the Foundation stays in the OSF Saint Elizabeth service area. Every donation makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families by enabling us to provide the highest quality health care and to fulfill our Mission. Your gift will also help provide our communities the most advanced medical equipment, patient care services, facilities, and highly trained professional staff possible.

How You Can Help Ensure Health Care's Future

Contributions to the OSF Saint Elizabeth Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, are treated as a charitable deduction for federal income, gift and estate purposes. The Foundation Board welcomes donations of personal property, stocks and bonds, or trusts and estates. Your gift, which will help ensure that healthcare services are available in Ottawa and the surrounding communities for many years to come, will be greatly appreciated.

Donors to the OSF Saint Elizabeth Foundation may elect to designate funds in one or more of the following ways:

  • Unrestricted Gift. These gifts provide crucial funds that allow the Foundation to meet immediate needs.
  • Permanent Endowment Fund. These donations provide a fund for the long-term support of OSF Saint Elizabeth. Only the interest earned from these funds may be used at any given time; the principal remains in the fund to provide a solid base of support for the future.
  • Memorial or Honorarium. These gifts can be unrestricted or made part of the permanent endowment fund, as the donor chooses. A memorial or honorarium also may be designated for a specific OSF Saint Elizabeth program or service.

When you make your contribution, please designate how your contribution should be used. Undesignated donations will be placed into the permanent endowment fund.
