Founded in 1995, the Guthrie County Hospital Foundation was organized to generate and manage your donations to the Guthrie County Hospital. A major advantage of the Foundation is its designation as a 501(C) 3 non-profit entity, which enables individuals, corporations and private foundations to receive maximum tax benefits.

We Believe that supporting our Foundation is one of the best ways to invest in the future strength and availability of excellent healthcare services in Guthrie County.

Our Mission is to provide financial support to the Guthrie County Hospital to be used to offer quality healthcare close to home.

The Guthrie County Hospital Foundation welcomes all levels of charitable donations whether through month pledges, yearly giving, private foundations or a promise of support through wills and bequests. Your gifts make it possible for Guthrie County Hospital Foundation to keep on giving.

Donations may be made by cash, check, wills, stocks, bonds, real estate, and many other charitable instruments. You may simply send them in the mail or drop them off at the hospital. For more information please contact us at (641) 332-2201 or stop by the front office of the hospital.

Your Will

Please remember Guthrie County Hospital Foundation in your will. It is not only a lasting memorial but also a financial boost to help the hospital in ways that you may not be able to right now. Any amount will be of benefit and sincerely appreciated. If you choose to leave funds as an endowment you will be leaving an amount every year in perpetuity. For example: If you left $25,000 to the Foundation at the low rate of 2 percent, a gift of $500 would be given to the foundation each year.

Income Tax Returns

This year when you receive your tax return, consider giving all or a portion of it to the Guthrie County Hospital Foundation. Your donation is tax deductible for next year and at the same time it is an opportunity to give back when you may not otherwise have the extra funds.

Memorial Gifts

Gifts in memory of a relative or friend are a very meaningful remembrance of your loved one.

When you memorialize the name of your loved one, your memorial gift to the foundation has a lasting impact. Your support helps to ensure the continued quality care for the many individuals who rely on Guthrie County Hospital for their healthcare needs. Your gift is tax deductible and an acknowledgment will be sent to you. The family of the loved one is notified of your thoughtfulness (the amount is kept confidential).
