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.

Greatest Need

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.

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.

Tribute Gifts

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.

Corporate Giving

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.

Planned Giving

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.
