Mission Statement

The mission of MCH Foundation is to secure and serve as a steward of charitable gifts and bequests that further the mission of Memorial Community Hospital.

The MCH Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, was established in 2000 for the purpose of furthering the work of Memorial Community Hospital & Health System. Governed by a local board of directors, the MCH Foundation seeks and accepts charitable contributions from individuals, businesses, corporations, and other foundations to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare to the communities we serve.

As we fulfill our mission of stewardship for the community, the caring shown to us in return in the form of philanthropic support is appreciated. The MCH Foundation employs the utmost care in administration and distribution of funds.

It is organized exclusively for charitable purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For more information about the MCH Foundation, please contact us at (402) 426-1464 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Ways of Giving

Your contribution is eligible as an income tax charitable deduction to the extent allowed by law. Here are some ways you can help.

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts, the most common form of giving, are as easy as writing a check.

Credit Card Gifts

Another convenient way to make a gift to the MCH Foundation is by a credit card donation.
Appreciated Securities gifts: Giving appreciated stocks and bonds is an excellent way to support the hospital's programs.

Real Estate Gifts

This is another way to contribute as an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property and elimination of capital gains tax on your profit.

Other giving opportunities include:

  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Bequests
  • Life Estate
  • Life Insurance Gifts

Honoring Gifts

Making a gift in honor of someone can be a wonderful way to memorialize a family member, friend, or colleague. The gift symbolizes a tribute to the individual for which it is given. Simply let us know who you would like to honor, and we will send that individual a card acknowledging your gift in their honor.

Gifts in Memory

The loss of a loved one or valued associate often leads to the desire for a living memorial. Gifts may be made in their remembrance. When gifts in memory of an individual are received, a card will be sent to the family of the deceased notifying them of the gift.
