Ways to Give
Lake Regional recognizes a special group of benefactors whose strong annual support helps us provide the safest, highest quality of care for our community. This prestigious level was created to recognize the contributions of those who give $50,000 or more.
Lake Regional's Compass Society recognizes a special group of benefactors whose pledges and support over the years also assists us in providing the safest, highest quality of care for our community. This prestigious Compass Society was created to recognize the contributions of those who pledge $10,000 to $49,999.
Many friends have enhanced the hospital’s ability to care for the community while successfully increasing the size of their estates and/or reducing the tax burdens on their heirs. In addition, friends who provide a planned gift are recognized as members of the hospital’s Anchor Ambassadors.
Read "The Power of a Plan" from Anchor Ambassador Committee chair, Trenny Garrett.
Our business giving program offers institutional donors the opportunity to develop and support innovative health care programs that directly benefit the Lake Regional and our community. Additionally, many corporations have matching gift programs that will match all or part of a gift from a current or retired employee.
A gift to Lake Regional’s Annual Fund – no matter how large or small – is an investment in the health of our community. Annual Fund gifts support an array of hospital initiatives and priorities designed to provide the best health care experience for our patients and their families.
As an employee, your personal dedication sends a powerful message to the community. Your gift shows that you are proud of the exceptional work of Lake Regional and that you are invested in the future of the hospital.
Making a memorial or tribute gift is a wonderful way to honor someone special while supporting the mission of the hospital while supporting high-quality healthcare for all patients.
Often, patients and their families want to know how they can show their appreciation to a caregiver who went above and beyond. One way to express gratitude is to make a charitable gift to Lake Regional to honor those who have made a difference in your care.
