Types of Gifts

Memorial Gifts

If you or someone you care about received great care and you would like to thank the department with a gift, please make a notation on your check. ECH will send an acknowledgement of your gift (but not the amount) to a friend or family member.

Honor a caregiver

There’s no better way to acknowledge exceptional care than through our Honor a Caregiver program, which allows you to support the hospital in the name of a special nurse, doctor, or multitude of staff who stood by you throughout your health care journey. 

After you make your gift in honor of a designated caregiver, he or she will receive special recognition so our staff knows about your caregiver’s extraordinary efforts. You can also nominate a nurse for a DAISY Award.

Matching Gifts

Many organizations have a matching gifts program for their employees who make charitable donations. This is an easy way to double or even triple your donation, depending on your company's policy. Ask your company if they have a matching gifts program and how you can take advantage of increasing the impact of your gift.
