Giving opportunities for 2020

The 2020 annual project is the purchase of an Anesthesia Machine for the Lincoln Hospital anesthesiologists. The current anesthesia machine is 10-years-old and in need of replacement. The newer machine, a Draeger Fabius Tiro model, will have the added benefit of providing medical air which is used as a substitute for nitrous oxide and optimal for patients sensitive to oxygen toxicity. This is also a safer method to deliver gases for anesthesia during surgical procedures. The Foundation is committed to funding $20,000 toward the cost of this equipment and we appreciate your generosity in helping us to achieve that goal.

The Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund continues to be an important avenue to generate income for ongoing capital projects at Lincoln Hospital like the lab remodel and TCU upgrades done the previous year. The fund is currently valued at over $2 million thanks to your generous contributions.

75% of the interest from the Endowment Fund is set aside for capital projects at Lincoln Hospital and Clinics. There are many ways to give to the Endowment Fund including gifts of cash, life insurance, real estate, securities and bequests in your will. Please help us continue to grow this fund to help meet the future needs of our beloved hospital district.
