You can make a gift in memory of someone who has passed or in honor of a living loved one. Memorial gifts are acknowledged to the family as well as to the donor. Tribute gifts are a great way to honor a special occasion.

Thank you for your interest in making a gift to the Oswego Health Foundation. The foundation is a separate 501(c)3 organization and an integral partner in Oswego Health’s mission to provide accessible, quality care and improve the health of the residents of the community. To ensure maximum impact of your gift, we have highlighted some of the ways you can give here:

Gift of Cash

Gifts in the form of cash, check or credit/debit cards are welcome. Please make checks payable to the Oswego Health Foundation. You may also make an online gift using a credit or debit card.

Gifts of Publicly Traded Securities

All securities that are traded on the New York and American Stock Exchanges, the NASDAQ, and other major U.S. Exchanges shall be accepted. The value of a gift of regularly traded securities will be the mean of the high and low of the stocks(s) or bond(s) on the day the transfer is affected by the donor to the organization.

We are able to recognize gifts in these different ways:

  • Bench – for gifts at $4,000 and above
  • Patient Room – for gifts at $15,000 and above
  • If you are interested in a naming opportunity, please contact Margaret Barclay.

Naming rights for gifts of $250,000 and greater are in perpetuity. For gifts of $15,000 to $75,000, naming rights are for a 15-year period and for gifts above $75,000 and up to $250,000 the naming rights expire after 30 years.
