The Satisfaction of Leaving a Legacy
Healthcare touches every person from every community. We all know that at some point in time each of us will need our healthcare system, and that this system will assist our loved ones and friends. From surgery, to hearing tests for newborns, to assistance recovering after an operation, to long term care for our vulnerable citizens, healthcare is interwoven with our daily lives and many of us value the care and compassion that is provided. Given the opportunity many people would contribute to improving our healthcare system for those who will need it in the future.
An Endowment offers the opportunity to make perpetual gifts for the health of future generations living in your community and region. It is a unique planned giving option that can be explored as a lifetime gift, while you are living, or as a legacy gift through a Bequest in your Will.
All gifts to the endowment of $10,000 or greater may be named by the donor to ensure a lasting legacy. Investments are managed by professional money managers and are overseen by our Foundation's Investment Management Committee. A gift can be made by any individual or company at any point in time. The donor simply designates his or her donation for the Endowment Fund.
Our Endowment Fund was started in the year 2000 and to date we have received several significant donations from our supporters. We have set an initial goal to grow our Endowment Fund to $1 million dollars. When we reach that goal we plan to begin using the annual interest to help support health programs & services of Central Health. We are making progress towards our goal having achieved over three quarters of our objective.
In January 2020, we launched the Endowment Campaign to actively seek donations to fulfill our $1 million goal. If you are interested in supporting the health of future generations in central Newfoundland through a donation to the Endowment Fund or are interested in setting up a Named Endowment please consider speaking to our Executive Director.
