Give a Gift

There are many ways to give. In 2016, the family of Lamar Knittle donated a bench in his memory.

Every gift to War Memorial Hospital enhances the care of patients, strengthens our hospital, and helps make our community an even better place for our neighbors, friends, and families.  Your gifts make a difference in the health of our EUP community.

Donations to WMH are made through our Development Fund and are fully tax deductible as allowed under the law. Gifts may be made by:

Credit Card (Donate Securely Online)

Stocks, Securities, or Property

Gifts of Stocks, Securities, or Property

Gifts of securities may offer significant tax benefits to the donor. Contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally tax deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for the securities. This may provide the donor with a capital gains savings as well as a charitable income tax deduction.

The transfer of securities from a donor’s brokerage account to the WMH Development Fund occurs through the Depository Trust Company (DTC).  The information you will need is listed here:

                        War Memorial Hospital
                        Charles Schwab Account # 2820-7165
                        DTC #0164
                        Donor Name and Address
                        Chippewa Count War Memorial Hospital
                        Federal I.D. # 38-2602147

You may also notify the Development Fund at 635-4351 and we can assist you with making a gift in this way.

Bequests and Planned Gifts

Making A Difference in the Lives to Follow

A Bequest is a will provision that becomes effective upon an individual’s death and allocates all or part of the individual’s estate to benefit WMH patients.  A Bequest can be general or specific. A specific Bequest may be designated to one or more of the hospital's departments.  Bequests most often are revocable and subject to change.   Sample language and a introductory brochure are provided in documents below.

A Beneficiary designation is a trust provision that becomes effective according to the terms of the trust. The trust terms may specify that WMH will receive a specific amount or percent of the trust assets upon an individual’s death, the occurrence of a specified event or at a specific time.  A trust is funded by assets that have been conveyed to it so that they will be titled in the name of the trust. A beneficiary designation is similar to a bequest and can be general or specific.  Trust assets  donated to WMH may be designated to one or more of the hospital's departments.  Beneficiary designations most often are revocable and subject to change.

WMH encourages everyone to create and update an estate plan with the assistance of a qualified attorney and/or other advisors.
