How to Give - The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation
Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), tax-exempt institution. Unlike for-profit businesses, any revenue after expenses is used by the medical center to upgrade services, equipment and facilities. With the resources we have received in managed care reimbursements, grants and corporate support, it is the additional resources from private giving that allows Good Samaritan to provide the most comprehensive health care services possible. The great majority of our gifts come from individuals, and we welcome gifts of any size.
All gifts to the medical center, large or small, are greatly appreciated and help to provide outstanding care for our community. Because giving is a private matter and will vary based on resources, there are a number of options available to support Good Samaritan:
General Donations: Outright gifts provide the medical center with crucial support for all programs and services from patient care to the purchase of advanced medical equipment.
In-Kind Donations: In addition to financial donations, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center accepts in-kind donations, such as toys and supplies for our patients. All items must be brand new. Good Samaritan cannot accept items that have been gently used, and we cannot accept donations of food or medical equipment. Please contact the Foundation office by phone to confirm that we are currently in need of the item(s) you wish to donate and to make a drop-off appointment. You can reach the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation at (631) 376-4365. Please visit the links below for additional guidelines and a list of urgent needs for our Pediatric Department.
Memorial and Tribute Donations: Families and friends of loved ones who have passed away often wish to make a gift in memory of someone special. Gifts to Good Samaritan can also provide a special opportunity to honor a family member or friend, or to honor a special event in someone’s life. Good Samaritan will send out a memorial or tribute card to the person you specify, and no mention will be ever made of the gift amount.
You can also honor or memorialize someone special by purchasing a personalized brick in one of our peaceful meditation gardens. Just as stated in Isaiah 49:15, "I have carved you in the palm of my hand," you can now carve a special message or remembrance into a brick that will become a lasting tribute. Benches and ornamental trees are also available on a limited basis. Please contact the Foundation Office at (631) 376-4365 for more information.
