Over the past three years, Foundation grants to BCH health services and
patients have exceeded $2,500,000 annually. Your donation makes an impact
in our community!
The Foundation uses donations to support a diverse range of needs, including
the Red Lipstick Fund, which helps local cancer patients with limited
resources navigate through their treatment; children’s rehabilitation
services; expansion of Foothills Hospital services; expanded mental health
and rehabilitation services; state-of-the-art medical technology; financial
support for un- and underinsured patients; and much, much more.
Boulder Community Health offers hundreds of different services to address
the diverse and ever-changing needs of our community. Greatest Need contributions
provide the Foundation with the most flexibility in supporting BCH to
deal with unpredictable and varying needs, including funding for valuable
services that are not directly covered by insurance.
When you make a gift to the Boulder Community Health Foundation, you have

Join us today as we work to further BCH’s vision of creating and
caring for the healthiest community in the nation.
Major Gift: A major gift is defined as a gift between $10,000 and $1 million and
can be made as a single donation, or a formal pledge that is broken out
over a course of several years.
Monthly Gift: Recurring donations ensure that funds are in place to further BCH’s
mission of creating and caring for the healthiest community in the nation.
Named Endowments: A named endowment fund honoring an individual or family can be established
with a minimum gift of $25,000 and may be "reserved" for five
years, providing the donor time to gift the qualifying amount. Typically,
such endowments match the interests of the named person with an area or
service at BCH.
Through a memorial or tribute gift, you can give joy and comfort to the
recipient while at the same time helping Boulder Community Health continue
to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation. Tribute
or memorial gifts are tax-deductible as provided by law.
Tribute gifts: A tribute gift is a wonderful way to celebrate a birth, anniversary, or
other special occasions, or to let someone dear know he or she is in your
thoughts. A tribute gift is also appropriate when you want to thank a
doctor, nurse, or other heath professional for exceptional care.
Memorial gifts: Consider a memorial gift when you want to honor the life of someone special
who has passed on. Many families, for instance, establish a memorial in
honor of a loved one, and they ask friends and relatives to make gifts
to the memorial instead of sending flowers.
When a business donates to Boulder Community Health, it supports a worthwhile
cause and creates goodwill about its brand.
In-Kind Gifts: There are many opportunities for businesses to donate goods or services
that benefit Boulder Community Health or Boulder Community Health Foundation.
In-kind gifts help reduce our expenses and gives your business recognition.
Sponsorship: When your company sponsors an event by a gift of cash, you are directly
supporting patient services, staffing, and vital programs of Boulder Community
Health. Recognition and benefits vary according to the amount of the gift.
Bequests: A simple bequest is the most common way to make a gift through your estate
plan. You can provide for Boulder Community Health with a gift of a specific
dollar amount, property, percentage of your estate, or what is left after
providing for your loved ones. You may also specify a specific program
BCH offers as the beneficiary of your generosity. Contact us on whether
it is necessary to re-write your will or whether a simple codicil will suffice.
Boulder Community Health Employee Giving: A payroll deduction plan allows Boulder Community Health employees to support
multiple initiatives that directly impact BCH staff and our community.
Heritage Society: Over the years, visionaries with a passion for Boulder Community Health’s
mission have made gifts in their wills and estate plans to the Foundation.
Such planned gifts are vital to meeting the challenges of the future.
The Heritage Society (over 200 strong!) proudly honors, recognizes and
thanks those who let us know that they have included BCH Foundation in
their estate plans. While we welcome the opportunity to publicly recognize
all members, your request for anonymity will be honored. Each Heritage
Society member receives an attractive memento symbolizing their affiliation
with and dedication to Boulder Community Health and is invited to periodic
special "insider" events.
Life Insurance or Retirement Plans: Another straightforward and popular gift – name the BCH Foundation
as the beneficiary of an insurance policy on your life. You might also
name the Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA,
Keough, 401(k)) or pension fund.
Other Planned Gifts: We accept gifts of appreciated stock, various charitable trusts, and charitable
annuities. Many gift choices are available, some having the added benefit
of significant tax savings.
