Ways to Give
There are multiple ways to support Geisinger Foundation's mission of ensuring our community receives the world-class healthcare it deserves.
Your annual gifts help Geisinger provide extraordinary services and programs across the entire health system - from patient care to staff and patient education, research and discovery, or community outreach. Annual giving is a vital source of institutional momentum, enhancing all that we do. Your gift may be designated for a specific area of interest, or unrestricted to be used where it is needed most.
Automatic Monthly Installments
Make a generous gift more affordable by paying the gift over the course of a year or setting up monthly credit card deductions. Contact us to set up a payment plan that is right for you.
Honor and Memorial Gifts
Mark a special occasion, pay tribute to someone special or honor the memory of a relative or friend.
Double or even triple the impact of your gift by taking advantage of your employer's matching gift program. Ask your company about their matching gift program, or provide the name of your company and we can do the rest.
Large gifts may be donated as a one-time gift or spread across a multi-year pledge. Gifts may be made by cash, check, credit card or securities. Naming opportunities may be available at certain giving levels. Contact Geisinger Foundation for more information.
Your generosity can make a greater impact over a longer period of time by establishing an endowment. Your gift, starting with a $25,000 giving threshold, will exist in perpetuity. The principal is never spent, while generating a steady source of income to support Geisinger programs for years to come.
There are many techniques available for creative, long-term gift planning. Contact us by email or phone for more information. The Foundation's Planned Giving expert, Judy Spiegel, will be happy to answer your questions.
- Charitable gift annuities - This is a great way to complement your retirement income while supporting Geisinger. Receive fixed, guaranteed income for life in exchange for creating a charitable annuity.
- Legacy gifts - Legacy gifts can benefit Geisinger while helping you decrease taxes, increase your income, and pass more on to your heirs.
- Bequests - You can designate Geisinger in your will and still maintain full use of your assets during your lifetime. Gifts can be structured to meet estate needs, provide tax advantages, and support worthy Geisinger programs at the same time.
