Ways to Give
Gifts to the Foundation, of any amount, are encouraged as a way for individuals, employees, families, and businesses to invest in life and become personally involved in meeting the needs of those served by the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System.
The Honor program is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to a friend or relative on a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, holiday or birth of a child. This type of gift is also a nice way to express appreciation to a physician or hospital staff member. Honor gifts can be designated to a specific program of interest to the donor or person being honored. We will promptly acknowledge your gift with a card to the honoree.
The Memorial Program provides a meaningful way to extend sympathy to the family of a friend or loved one that has passed away. Memorial gifts can be designated to Foundation programs that were significant in the life of the person being honored. Some examples are Heart, Cancer, Diabetes, and Children's Miracle Network. We will promptly acknowledge your gift with a card to the family of the person to whom you are paying tribute.
The Annual Giving Campaign gives donors the opportunity to support programs that enhance health care. CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances employees also have a very successful Annual Giving Campaign, Share the Spirit of Giving, which is held each Spring.
Major gifts support capital campaigns or special projects of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances.
Endowment gifts provide a lasting contribution through wise investments of the initial gift, ensuring that only interest earnings will be used to provide ongoing funding for the program designated by the donor.
Gifts of Stock or Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated assets include stock and real estate.
Another form of giving is through deferred gifts. These gifts are arranged during the donor's lifetime, but do not benefit CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances until a future date. They can offer numerous economic benefits to the donor, including a current income tax deduction, an increased income for life, an avoidance of capital gains tax and an improved estate tax situation. Deferred gifts are made by requests through wills, trusts, charitable gift annuities and life insurance policies.
