The regular support we receive through gifts to our annual fund drive enables us to administer programs that change lives and save lives, as well as meet unplanned charitable needs throughout the year.
A gift to one of Cass Regional Foundation's programs in memory of, or in honor of, a friend or loved one is a meaningful tribute to that person's life. Several donors have chosen to give memorial and honor gifts through placing a paving brick or bench in our Memorial Garden, or placing a wind sculpture in our Healing Garden courtyard. Learn more about our gardens.
Regardless of the program to which you direct your gift, we will be happy to acknowledge your donation to the person honored or to the family of the person memorialized. When you make your gift, simply indicate the name and address of the person to whom you'd like us to send notice of your donation. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed. See below for details on how to donate.
Our Foundation coordinates two signature fundraising events each year: a fundraising dinner and raffle and the Grin & Bear It Run. We are fortunate to have outstanding community and business support of these events each year, and proceeds benefit programs such as medical equipment purchases and the Patient Assistance Fund.
We are fortunate to have had donors who have come forward throughout the years to fund special projects at Cass Regional Medical Center, such as scholarships for students who are pursuing health care careers; construction of the Emergency Department, Chapel and Healing Garden through our Help, Hope and Healing Campaign; and “wish list” enhancements such as a the lighting kit for our Healing Garden fountain.
"Planned gifts" refers to donations that are made from a donor's accumulated assets and are part of the donor's overall estate plan. In most cases, these gifts come in the form of simple bequests provided for in the donor's will (such as a set amount of money or a percentage of the estate). Gifts of life insurance and the establishment of charitable gift annuities also fall under the term "planned giving."
Cass Regional Medical Center Foundation is fortunate to have been the recipient of several generous planned gifts, most of which have been in the form of bequests. At the direction of the individual donors, these gifts have been used to establish scholarships for health care students, obtain life-saving equipment for Cass Regional, or furnish certain areas of the medical center. Since these gifts are "lifetime" donations made from assets acquired over a period of years, many donors have been able to make a substantial gift that otherwise would not be possible if it were given out of current income. For many donors, even those of modest means, planned giving offers the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in an area of special interest for them.
