Sioux Center Health Foundation exists to help people share in our ministry of bringing hope, health and healing to life. Gifts to the Sioux Center Health Foundation allow us to continue our unwavering commitment of offering high quality health care right here in our community.
Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of those we serve by being a part of the hands and feet of Jesus’ healing ministry. You are helping our ministry touch the lives of thousands – whether patients are facing an urgent need, a devastating disease, or seeking to improve the quality of their life.
Through a planned gift, you can support our mission today, with cash or stock for example, or design a plan as part of your estate to benefit our children, patients, tenants, and community after your lifetime.
Explore your options below and find a plan that meets your goals.
The Sioux Center Health Foundation provides an opportunity for friends and supporters to share in the health ministry through charitable gifts.
Memorial gifts are a perfect way to remember a special friend or loved one. Memorial gifts also help to provide for the special needs of people seeking health care in our region. Your gift can help save a life or improve the quality of living for others. Through your support, you will touch the lives of our patients, residents, and their families in a special and meaningful way.
Honor gifts celebrate special events and occasions in our lives or the lives of our family and friends. By remembering someone in this way, you not only honor that person, but also support health care services for people in our communities. Honor gifts are given in celebration of birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, or as a way to express your thanks for a kind gesture.
Endowment gifts, in the form of true, term, and general endowments help provide continuing long-term resources to meet present and future needs of individuals as we fulfill our health ministry. As you make financial plans for your future, please remember the Sioux Center Health Foundation.
