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.
Monthly Donations: For nearly 60 years, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center has been dedicated to providing the very best in compassionate care close to home. Donating monthly ensures consistent support for this vital work and ensures that we can continue to meet the ever changing healthcare needs of our community and beyond. Your monthly gift is an investment in the health, happiness and wellbeing of your neighbors – even your very own family – and will make an impact on countless lives. Here's How.
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. The generosity of donors around the holidays helps us to make the season brighter for our children and assists us as we care for these precious patients throughout the year. In-kind donations are used to help celebrate birthdays, offer helpful distractions during difficult and painful procedures, and to comfort children as they are healing.
COVID-19 has presented many challenges and unfortunately, we are unable to accept toys, stuffed animals and games at this time. If you are able, please consider purchasing gift cards or donating to the child life program so we may continue to make the season bright during these unprecedented times, which will enable our Child Life and Pediatric Outpatient Rehab departments to purchase items that they are in need of for our patients. Please click here if you would like to make a monetary donation to support the amazing work of these departments. In addition, purchases from our Amazon Wish List can be made and shipped directly to the hospital. Please be sure to select Good Samaritan Hospital Child Life Department's Gift Registry Address as the shipping address to ensure your donation reaches us. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Ashley King at the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation at (631) 376-4365.
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.
