Donations and Major Gifts
Donations and major gifts are received from former patients and their families, hospital employees, individuals interested in health care, service clubs, and community organizations. Major gifts consist of cash or gift-in-kind donations of $1,000 or more. Major donors are recognized on plaques throughout the hospital and in the main lobby. In-kind donations of equipment and/or supplies are also accepted and we make sure that those in need receive such donations.
Planned Giving and Alumni Programs
Planned charitable gifts support the future work of Hurley. Members of the James J. Hurley Society use estate and financial planning to create a legacy for themselves, their families, and our community. Alumni giving is a strong focus for fundraising, to support Hurley Medical Center’s role as a center of education for physicians, nurses, and other health professionals.
The Hurley Foundation seeks grants for Hurley Medical Center from private companies, foundations, trusts, and public agencies. Grant funds are used to improve existing services, initiate new programs, or to support capital expenditures, such as renovation or major pieces of equipment.
The Hurley Foundation currently works with over 500 volunteers who donate more than 65,000 hours of service to hospital departments and programs each year. Volunteer programs include adult and student programs, on-call pastoral care, radiology, and Research Department.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Since 1990, Hurley Medical Center has been a member of the international Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a fundraising network that supports pediatric specialty services at over 170 hospitals. All money raised in our community stays in our community and is used for children’s services or to purchase needed pieces of equipment. Donations are solicited from our community throughout the year, culminating in an annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ television broadcast in June.
Special events are held every year to benefit individual hospital units and departments include the Hurley Benefit Ball and the Hurley Trauma Center Golf Classic.
