Ways to Give
There are several ways you can give. Donations of every type and amount are needed and appreciated.
Your gift can be earmarked for an area of your designation:
Area of Greatest Need
These funds are unrestricted and used to purchase equipment that is outside the capital budget of the hospital but would significantly improve patient care.
This fund is restricted from ever being spent. Rather, funds are accumulated and the interest earned is added to the unrestricted funds for making equipment purchases and improving patient care. In this way, your gift keeps on giving.
These monies are used to pay for mammogram services for uninsured or underinsured patients.
Special Needs Fund
These monies are granted to qualifying patients-in-need to help them pay for prescription medications upon discharge from the hospital that they would otherwise not be able to afford.
Gifts of Cash
An easy way to support NRMC Foundation is by making an outright gift of cash. You can do so online or by returning the donation form with your payment. If you choose, you may make your donation in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Your gift can be unrestricted and applied to wherever the need is greatest, or you can designate your gift to support a specific need. You may make a one-time gift or pledge support over time.

Double or triple the impact of your gift! Many companies have a matching gift program that matches part or all of their employee’s gifts to charities. Contact your Human Resources Department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds offer substantial tax advantages, such as forgiveness of the tax on capital gains and a charitable income tax deduction for their fair market value. In order to maximize your capital gains savings, we encourage you to transfer securities directly to the Foundation rather than selling them and then making a cash donation. Please use this form when making a stock donation.
By remembering NRMC
Foundation in your estate plans, you can leave a meaningful mark on the hospital’s work that spans beyond your years. In fact, many donors find that through bequests, they are able to make a significant philanthropic commitment more comfortable than doing so during their lifetime. Many types of planned and life income gifts also offer benefits to donors and their families in addition to the charitable support provided to the hospital. Contact the Foundation office at 417-448-3801 for more informationYour donation to the Foundation is greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged with a thank you note receipt that can be used for tax purposes at the end of the year. We encourage you to seek advice from your personal legal/tax counsel in determining your individual charitable tax deductions.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
V. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

Patients, family members, employees, physicians, and the community-at-large support the hospital’s work through their generous contributions to programs and campaign efforts. Our donors are extremely important to us and we continuously seek ways to recognize them and express our gratitude:
- Any donor who contributes $100 or more in a given year will be published in the NRMC Foundation Annual Report.
- Donors who cumulative gifts total $500 - $2400 will be featured on the permanent Tree of Life donor recognition wall located in the main lobby of the hospital across from the information desk. To view the Tree of Life brochure for levels, click here.
- Total donations of more than $2500 are recognized on the Wall of Appreciation. The Wall of appreciation is a tribute to those donors whose outstanding generosity demonstrates a commitment to medical excellence in our community. Donors (families, individuals, organizations & businesses) “move up” the wall as total donation amounts increase. To view the Wall of Appreciation brochure for levels, click here.
