About us

Our mission

Lincoln Hospital is a vital resource for Lincoln County and the surrounding area, and provides state of the art healthcare to improve our quality of life.

Since 1989, the mission of the Lincoln Hospital Foundation has been to promote and enhance the care available at Lincoln Hospital by providing a vehicle through which individuals and organizations can give gifts and memorials to fund current and ongoing needs.

Giving says you care!

Your gift to the Lincoln Hospital Foundation touches the lives of your family and friends by ensuring quality healthcare in your community. Your contribution will be at work at the patient bedside and with the physicians and nurses providing state of the art care.

  • Your gifts can commemorate a loved one who is no longer with us; recognize a birthday, anniversary or special event; honor or thank someone who has made a difference in your life; or can be used to encourage someone to get well after an injury or illness. Remember, this gift lasts forever!
  • Your gift will be acknowledged promptly. The family or honored individuals will be notified; the amount of the gift will not be disclosed.
  • Your gift is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution.

There are two ways to support Lincoln Hospital through the foundation — the Current Project Campaign and the Permanent Endowment Fund.

Current Project Campaign

Each year, the foundation Trustees select a special project related to improving patient care. Whether it's a new piece of technology, furnishings or upgrading patient comforts, the project will support the medical care and comfort of our friends and family.

The Permanent Endowment Fund—Lincoln Hospital's future

You can be a part of a strong and positive future for Lincoln Hospital with gifts to the Endowment Fund. Because the principal of this fund will never be spent, your giving will continue as the interest is used to support capital improvements.

All cash donations, real estate, securities, life insurance and gifts from your will are welcomed. A financial professional can advise you of the benefits of gifts to the foundation. If you don't have a financial advisor, the foundation staff can provide you with a list of qualified professionals.

Our commitment

Whether you choose to give to the current project or the Endowment Fund, you can be assured that your gift will not be used for administrative costs. The Lincoln Hospital Foundation is committed to the programs of Lincoln Hospital and its future.

You make a difference!
