Pay it Forward as a Grateful Patient

If you are looking for a way to say "thank you" to a staff member who has shown expertise, compassion, or otherwise went above and beyond, please consider making a donation in their honor. Select one of the options above to make your gift now.

Monthly Giving

Many donors want to make a large gift, but writing a check is not financially feasible. That is why we offer monthly giving. By giving a donation every month, it can slowly add up at a more comfortable pace. To give monthly, please check the box in the recurring gift section of our online donation forms. Or, simply call us at 231-213-1150.


If it is more convenient for you to make your gift over time, we are happy to receive major gifts in pledges to be paid over time (up to five years). We will be happy to meet with you and discuss your options. To make an appointment with a giving specialist, please call 231-213-1150.

Support or Plan an Event

To host your own fundraising event, please contact our events specialist Kira Walkup at 231-213-1161 or kwalkup@mhc.net. Our team can offer assistance by helping to spread the word and collect donations.

You can also show your support by attending an upcoming event in your community!

Make a Gift of Stock or Mutual Funds

Gifts of stock or mutual funds are among the easiest and most mutually-beneficial ways to support local healthcare. These charitable gifts are eligible for certain tax deductions and can help you avoid paying capital gains on the stock or real estate's increased value. Please consult your attorney or financial adviser for more information regarding the tax benefits of a gift of stock or mutual funds. If you would like to initiate a stock transfer, please call 231-213-1150 and we will help you get started. 

Memorials and Honorariums

A gift in memory or honor of someone is deeply meaningful. When a gift is made in memory or honor of a loved one or a friend, the immediate family is notified that a gift has been made to honor their loved one. “In Honor of" gifts are a meaningful way to observe someone's birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. The Foundation sends a thank you letter to the donor acknowledging their donation. If you would like more information on ways to honor a loved one's memory, please call 231-213-1150.

Plan Your Legacy

When you make a legacy gift to your local hospital through your will, estate, or financial plans, the impact of your generosity lives on. Investing in the wellness of our northern Michigan communities is a wonderful way to help people enjoy healthier, better, and longer lives. To learn more, click here or call 231-213-1150.

Give Through a Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides a convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.

With a donor advised fund, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. Most donor advised funds accept donations of long-term appreciated securities and other assets.
