Most of our supporters make their gifts in the form of annual unrestricted gifts of cash, which continues to be the Foundation’s highest priority. Gifts which are made in this way are used for the general operations of Children’s Hospital of Richmond, including maintaining a staff of pediatric specialists in a facility designed just for children, operating 24 hours a day. In making a gift toward general operations, you are providing for the care and treatment of children through the everyday needs associated with running the hospital.
Throughout the years, we have been fortunate to receive much support in the form of planned gifts. In fact, the construction of the original Children’s Hospital on Brook Road, from which we still operate today, was funded through a bequest from Mrs. Sallie May Dooley of Richmond in 1928. Planned gifts can include a gift through your will, life income gifts (Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Gift Annuity) or a gift of life insurance.
Twice a year we share information about planned giving through our newsletter, The Legacy. The latest issue is available by clicking here.
Oftentimes gifts to the Foundation are made as a way to memorialize a friend or loved one. Honor gifts are usually made to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. These kinds of gifts can be made as general contributions or planned gifts. If you request it, we will notify the family of the memorialized individual or honoree with a special card from Children’s Hospital Foundation informing them the gift has been made. This is a very special way in which to express grief or celebrate a special occasion. Memorial and honor gifts can be made online by clicking here or by mail at the address below.
Pediatric health care is very expensive because of the multitude of equipment needs the facility must provide each year. Examples include: beds on the inpatient unit, vital signs monitors, computers, x-ray equipment, and therapy mats, just to name a few. In addition, we frequently try to fund special projects such as new construction, renovation of existing facilities, and program enhancement.
