Charitable Giving Options

There are many ways to help fulfill Sanford Medical Center Chamberlain Foundation’s dedication to quality healthcare. Donors may designate their gift for the specific purpose they desire or make an unrestricted gift to be used where the need is greatest.

Memorial/Honor Gifts

Memorial and Honor gifts allow you to recognize the memories of special people or honor friends and loved ones at special times. You can use this program to celebrate the life of family members and friends or to mark special occasions as often as you choose to salute birthdays, wedding anniversaries, graduations, and new babies. You may wish to convey holiday wishes or give thanks for recovery from an illness.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are generally made through some form of bequest: estate plan, insurance policy transfer, or gift of stock or property. Often, these gifts provide an opportunity for individuals and families to make larger gifts than they might have thought possible while receiving favorable tax benefits and life income arrangements.


A properly drafted and up to date Will allows you to provide for loved ones and those charities you wish to support. Another benefit may be tax savings. If you wish to consider a bequest to the Sanford Mid-Dakota Foundation, we will assist you and your legal adviser.

Trusts and Annuities

Trusts and Annuities allow the transfer of assets such as cash, property or equities to a charitable organization like Sanford Mid-Dakota Foundation. In return the donor can receive tax savings and annual income as determined by the gift and donor’s age or designated beneficiary arrangements.

Donor Endowed Funds

Donors may establish a permanent endowment fund with their gift to meet a special purpose or support a healthcare program important to them. The investment earnings of endowed funds are used for the purposes so designated by the donor. An agreement with the donor is established to ensure their wishes are carried out on an ongoing basis. To support health, hope and healing in community care, make a gift today.
