Why should I give?

Every day, parents from across central Ohio, and around the world, walk through our doors and ask us to cure, to mend, to comfort, and to save the one thing they treasure most: a child. All will be treated regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Donor support allows us to stay true to this mission, because when a child is sick, a parent’s first worry should never be how they will pay for that care. The need is great.

How do I establish an Endowment?

Gifts to Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation can be permanently recognized with the establishment of an Endowment. Endowments offer lasting financial resources for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Endowed funds are extremely useful in enhancing the quality of the Hospital’s current programs and allows Children’s to extend our tradition of superior patient care, research, and education to future generations of children.

A minimum contribution of $25,000 is required to establish an Endowment fund. Once established, additions of any amount may be made to the endowment at any time. Endowments may be named for the donor, in memory or in honor of a loved one, or for the specific program it benefits.

Endowment funds are invested as part of Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation’s permanent endowment which consists of equity (stocks) and fixed income (bonds) securities.

Contributions to Endowment funds qualify for charitable income tax deductions as provided by law and may reduce any applicable gift or estate taxes.

Our gift planning staff will be pleased to assist you in reviewing your options. For further information, please contact Cathy Kellerman at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation at (614) 355-0888.
