Annual Giving

Annual giving is the only fundraising program that reaches out to all friends of CRMC on a yearly basis. Its focus is on acquiring regular yearly contributions, thus creating a vital and dependable source of support for your hospital. You should be receiving invitations for annual giving in the mail.

Corporate & Foundation Giving

Some of the biggest impacts made to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center have come from the support of corporations and fellow foundations. Corporation- and foundation-supported projects help us to build and grow our patient care capacity.

“In Memory” or “In Honor”

A gift “in memory” or “in honor” is particularly moving, as it is a tribute to the life of someone special. The legacy of your loved one lives on in high-quality, TrueCare work of the Cheyenne Regional Healthcare System. What a lasting tribute for that special person!

Matching Gifts

Some corporations match the charitable gifts of their employees. Many even match charitable contributions made by retirees or directors. Check with your human resources department to see if the company you work for has a matching program. If they do, simply submit your gift with the applicable form from your company, and they will contribute toward the area or program of your choice.

Named Gifts

Named gifts are a wonderful way to support the Cheyenne Regional Healthcare System. Your named gift will help ensure that world-class healthcare is available for future generations—and it also will serve as a lasting tribute to you, your family, or a loved one. We welcome the opportunity to name the gift in your honor and as a perpetual expression of thanks. Named gift opportunities include departments, buildings, lobbies, healing gardens, and more.

Planned Giving

The Foundation’s gift-planning staff assists donors in integrating charitable gifts into their financial, tax, and estate-planning objectives—maximizing the benefits for donors and the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. Planned gifts provide donors with an immediate tax deduction and other benefits such as life income, continued use of gift property, or elimination of capital gains tax. If you are considering CRMC in your estate plans and planned giving, please contact Vicky Fry at (307) 996-4510 or You may also click here for more Planned Giving information and tools.

Cheyenne Regional Foundation Annual Fund

Employees of Cheyenne Regional Medical Center can make a small, tax-deductible donation to the Foundation every pay period to help make a big difference in the quality of patient care at our system. For the price of a cheap cup of coffee, you can make a big difference in the place you work, and the community in which you live!

What does that look like?

  • One employee—donates $2.50 a pay period (x) 26 pay periods = $65.00 per year
  • One hundred employees—donate $2.50 a pay period (x) 26 pay periods = $6,500.00 per year
  • One thousand employees—donate $2.50 a pay period (x) 26 pay periods = $65,000.00 per year

Existing Endowment or Establishing an Endowment

Every year, in accordance with its payout policy, the Foundation distributes hundreds of thousands of dollars to CRMC for expenditures that include projects and building/equipment purchases and other patient care programming and improvements.

Give to an existing endowment
When people give a gift to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, they often give to an existing endowment, as opposed to the funds going directly toward immediate needs. An endowment is a wonderful way to extend the life of a gift. Endowments are conduits that allow yesterday’s grateful patients, families, and community members to help the patients of today and tomorrow. Endowments provide a firm foundation of assets that are held in perpetuity—the interest on the fund creates a steady stream of funding for the purposes chosen by the donor. This reliable, growing income allows the Foundation to help our system to improve patient care in a number of positive ways each year.

Create an endowment fund
When you create an endowed fund, the donation is used to purchase shares—much like mutual funds—in the endowment pool. Adding these funds to the endowment pool broadens investment possibilities a great deal more more than if each endowment were invested individually. However, accounting is done separately for each fund—and based upon the number of owned shares in the pool, income is distributed after an initial one-year waiting period. Earnings above the amount of distributions are added to the corpus, enabling the principal balance to continue to grow—and providing a hedge against inflation.
