How Do I Give?
Contributions to the Foundation in support of our hospital can be made in several forms:Donations from individuals or Community Organizations… for which we are always grateful Supporting fundraising events in the form of sponsorship. (The Golf Tournament or Fall Home Show) Corporate support from the business community who recognize how important good health care isAnd Planned Giving… gifts that are arranged now but that will take effect in the future. Volunteering as a board member, an event participant or supporter, or in many other ways.There’s probably no hospital that can maintain the very best in healthcare technology and services without the help of some very special friends & its benefactors.
Each year generous donors – many of them our former patients – contribute to our Healthcare Foundation, making a difference in the lives of others who depend on our community hospital.
The Foundation has two purposes. To support and sustain Franklin County Medical Center and to promote healthy lifestyles throughout Franklin County and the surrounding communities.
Why Would I Give?
When you make a contribution to Franklin County Medical Center through our Foundation, your gift goes directly to work, helping to improve patient care, research, education, and providing doctors and nurses with quality facilities and equipment to be able to assist each of us to better health.
Through the support of people like you, new medical equipment is purchased or existing pieces are upgraded. For our patients this means modern, efficient diagnosis and treatment is available when they need it. Without the ongoing philanthropic support of individuals, businesses and community organizations, many purchases would not be possible.
Our friends, neighbors, and family members—even ourselves, who become patients at Franklin County Medical Center. Each of us deserves the best possible care.
Why Do People Give?
People give for a number of reasons. More often than not they believe that they are contributing to better healthcare in their community. And they are absolutely right. Better hospital funding means more and better services. In the long run any contribution to a hospital’s foundation is an investment in you and your community’s health.
What Does Franklin County Healthcare Foundation Do With Donations?
During the time that the foundation has existed they have funded the Landscape Project in front of the Nursing Home and they have donated needed medical equipment to the hospital. Both of these activities have been beneficial to the residents and patients at FCMC. The Landscape Project included six young men seeking Eagle Scout status, several service clubs, and both private and public donations.
Is It Tax Deductible?
All donations to Franklin County Healthcare Foundation are fully tax deductible as long as no gain to the donor is made. For instance, if the Foundation sells widgets for $10 to the public and the cost of the widgets is $5, the donor can only deduct $5.
