Ways to Give

A Legacy of Caring...A Tradition of Sharing
The Lakeland Health Foundations continues to encourage and receive gifts from individuals, businesses, institutions, trusts, estates and other foundations to further the goals of Lakeland HealthCare. These donations help the system acquire the most advanced medical technologies, provide state-of-the-art facilities and implement innovative healthcare programs and services.

Your Generosity Makes a Difference
Gifts made to the Lakeland Health Foundations provide for the margin of excellence that characterizes patient care at Lakeland HealthCare. They provide financial resources over and above other revenues and make possible additional investments in new medical technology and equipment to treat patients. They expand the knowledge of our professional staff, support community outreach services and education for our community.

The hospital's ability to remain responsive to the healthcare needs of our community depends largely, as it always has, on the generosity of friends, benefactors, individuals and businesses who are willing to invest in their community's future. We rely on this partnership of giving to meet your needs – both now and in the future. For more information on the Lakeland Health Foundation's many giving programs, please write or call:

The Donor Bill of Rights

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

III. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
