Clay County Hospital Endowment Foundation’s Mission is to Build Friendships and Secure Resources for Clay County Hospital.

In 2001, Friends of Clay County Hospital organized an Endowment Foundation and opted at the time to establish a timeless tribute to recognize individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations that make significant financial contributions to Clay County Hospital Endowment Foundation. Located in the main lobby adjacent to the information desk, the Clay County Hospital Endowment Foundation “Wall of Honor” is a grateful acknowledgement of the donors who give so generously to meet the healthcare needs of south central Illinois. Whether you are a current donor or considering a first time gift, when you give to the Clay County Hospital Endowment Foundation, you share in the hospital’s commitment of providing excellent healthcare. By making a gift, you will know that you are supporting healthcare today and for many generations to come. Gifts of any size are always appreciated. The first giving level is that of 1) Friend ($25 to $999). Donors with a giving level of $1,000 or more are recognized on the wall. The wall is divided into six giving categories with plaques of graduated sizes.

The levels are as follows:

1) Friend ($25 to $999).
2) Sustaining Donor ($1,000 to $4,999)
3) Associate Donor ($5,000 to $9,999)
4) Honor Donor ($10,000 to $24,999)
5) Distinguished Patron ($25,000 to $49,999)
6) Distinguished Benefactor ($50,000 to $99,999)
7) Distinguished Humanitarian ($100,000 and above)

All contributions will be used for the continuation and improvement of quality health care services at Clay County Hospital. Your donation may be in the form of cash, memorial, bequest, or other method of your choosing. The foundation was started as a way to inform the public of the benefits of the hospital, and to help develop communication and education in order to promote the growth and quality of healthcare and service provided. Their fundraising efforts provide the hospital with much needed equipment and also helps provide scholarships to support students entering into the field of healthcare. The Foundation is a non-forprofit 501(c) (3) entity. Donations are tax deductible. The Endowment Foundation has provided many items and services to the hospital and clinics over years of support!
