Experience the Joy of Giving
Listed below are explanations about a number of convenient opportunities to help us support members of our community and their ability to access quality medical care.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
The Fairfield Medical Center Foundation provides a number of different ways for corporations, businesses and individuals to give the gift of a healthier community. We hope that you will consider attending, sponsoring or providing an in-kind gift to support our special events, the proceeds from which will support the hospital we love and the community we serve.
The Fairfield Medical Center Foundation joins a national day of generosity known as #GivingTuesday. This is a day to celebrate a culture of giving rather than receiving, when communities, charities, businesses and individuals come together to transform the way we think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. Your monetary donation will contribute to the health of our community, helping ensure that Fairfield Medical Center is better able to provide care for every patient, regardless of their ability to pay.
All donations made before December 31 each year can be filed on that year’s taxes. Your gift is 100% tax-deductible and may be directed to one of our specific causes or funds if you wish.
Families can establish an endowed memorial or celebratory fund in the name of the decedent or honoree with gifts totaling $10,000 or more. Endowed funds increase in market value over time, since only a portion of the fund’s income is spent annually. The fund will exist in perpetuity, serving as a touching memorial to your loved one.
The entrance to the North Lobby of FMC serves as a beautiful location for our brick memorial patio. If you have a loved one or someone you wish to recognize, you may choose to engrave their name(s) on either of these two brick types:
If you are an employee of a company that has a program that will “match” your contribution to the FMC Foundation, you can multiply your gift, allowing it to reach every corner of our Foundation. We encourage you to check with your employer’s Human Resources office to see if they offer this program. If you find that is not an option with your company, you may consider starting this program.
Your cash gift is an immediate way to show your support, and you are able to designate your gift to benefit a specific fund. Donations are accepted as cash, check, money order, credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover) and can be made online, by mail or in person.
The FMC Foundation considers attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents and other professionals who have relationships with members of our community to be our valued partners in charitable giving. We want to be a resource for you, as well as a philanthropic partner for your clients, providing a full understanding of the many possibilities of supporting our community by giving through the FMC Foundation.
Do you know there are ways to support Fairfield Medical Center that do not affect your current lifestyle or your family’s security? You can support FMC with gifts that do not impact the way you live by designating Fairfield Medical Center to receive estate assets in the future, or you can make immediate gifts of assets that are “out of sight and out of mind.”
An array of possibilities exists for naming opportunities at FMC, which provides you with the opportunity to leave a legacy of your family name or someone for whom you deeply care. The financial requirements vary, and donors are encouraged to contact our office to discuss your area of interest and possibilities.
