CCH Foundation

The spirit of giving is evident at Clarke County Hospital (CCH). The hospital you experience today as a patient or visitor is a result of the gifts of dozens of individuals, families, businesses, and organizations who place a priority on quality health care, close to home. Their gifts are channeled through the CCH Foundation, which is made up of a dedicated group of leaders from the communities served by CCH.

Annual Campaign & Auxiliary Golf Tournament

Annual giving campaigns and our Auxiliary Golf Outing provide the hospital with the means to maintain state-of-the-art medical technology, refresh older areas of the facility that need a makeover, and support scholarships for young people entering into health care careers. Gifts that support the Annual Campaign come from business sponsors, families, individuals, CCH employees, memorials, and volunteers. Gifts can also come through memorial gifts and grants.

The 15th Annual Clarke County Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament will be held at the Osceola Municipal Golf Course on July 9 with one flight teeing off at 1:30 pm.  The event features a silent auction and dinner for all participants.

Planned Giving

There are as many different ways to support Clarke County Hospital as there are needs to be supported. Potential benefactors of the Clarke County Hospital Foundation will want to consider a number of methods of supporting the Foundation financially. Charitable gift planning can be accomplished in many ways. Types of planned gifts include:

  • Bequests - through a will or other form of estate plan, a deferred gift can provide a gift beyond what current means allow
  • Beneficiary - designating the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance, an annuity, or a will is a way to allow your gift to extend beyond your lifetime
  • Charitable Trust - various trusts can be used to provide value to you donor and provide a gift to the Foundation
  • Property - this can include a gift of securities, insurance policies, and real estate. In a rural community, there is the potential to include the hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of farmland. Also, stocks, bonds and mutual funds can be donated, often with positive tax consequences for your estate

As a 501(c) non-profit organization, gifts to the Clarke County Hospital Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Specific tax benefits can be discussed in more detail with your attorney or tax advisor. 

Donor Recognition

Each donor is recognized for his or her gift with a thank you and a permanent spot on the Donor Wall for accrued gifts totaling $1,000 or more. 

Naming rights for single gifts of $10,000 and above are available to recognize a donor's outstanding generosity with a room, treatment area, wing, clinic, or other area of the hospital carrying the donor's name.
