Ways You Can Give

Founders Society
Founders Society members are the leaders of our Annual Fund program. Membership starts at $500, and at the Chairman’s Circle level of $1,000 or more, you receive special additional recognition.

Cornerstone Society
If you pledge, verbally or in writing, to name the Hospital in your will, include the Hospital in your estate plans, and/or establish a charitable gift annuity in the Hospital’s name, you become a member of The Westerly Hospital Foundation’s Cornerstone Society.

Cornerstone Society members provide significant long-term support for the Hospital while achieving personal tax objectives and/or maintaining lifetime income. Members also gather annually with Hospital leadership to learn about the current status of Westerly Hospital and its future goals and plans.

2015-2016 Annual Fund
One of the many resources that may be used to determine the nature and extent of any heart blockage – whether you can go right home, or whether your condition requires more serious attention – is the Westerly Hospital Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.

Having safely and conveniently helped thousands of patients for more than ten years, Westerly Hospital’s “Cath Lab” now requires a nearly $2 million upgrade.  Our 2015-2016 Annual Fund is dedicated to assisting thousands of future patients by making this investment possible.  Please renew your support for Westerly Hospital or take pleasure in giving for the first time.

Memorials and Tributes
Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way for you to recognize a friend or family member’s special occasion or to honor the memory of a loved one. Those who have gifts made in their memory are commemorated in our Angel of Hope Memorial Garden for two years, after which their plaque is permanently placed in the Hospital Chapel. All those honored with gifts made in memory of or in honor of are listed in the Hospital’s Annual Journal of Tribute Gifts.

When making a gift, please inform us if you wish to notify the family of your recipient and, if so, provide their contact information.

Planned Gifts

Some gift arrangements can provide a stream of income to you and/or your spouse for a lifetime or for a specified number of years. Examples of Planned Gifts include charitable gift annuities, remainder and lead trusts, simple bequests, and the naming of The Westerly Hospital as a full or partial beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement or insurance policy.
