An endowment to the Edward Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here's how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Edward Hospital. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple SmilingLongtime supporters Susan and Charlie want to make sure Edward Hospital continues to flourish long after they're gone. They also want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. So they make a $25,000 donation to the Edward Foundation, which we invest. Each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support the hospital in honor of the Joneses. The rest of the income is reinvested in the fund; that's what allows it to support us indefinitely. Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
