‘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!
Existing Endowment or Establishing an 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.
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.
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. For example: In 2011, The Foundation received just over $400,000 in endowment income.
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.
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 email@example.com.

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.
