Donate to Holy Spirit Health System

Charity is at the heart of everything we do. Through the years, generous donors have literally changed the face of Holy Spirit. Contributions support many healing ministries, from building new facilities to providing free wellness programs or insuring that your neighbors have access to healthcare services.

Every day, Holy Spirit staff and volunteers are called on to meet the needs of people who come to us in their time of need, without regard to their ability to pay. Your donation—no matter what the size—makes a meaningful impact on the lives of people throughout central Pennsylvania. Here are a few ways you can truly serve others and exemplify God’s love through giving.

Types of Giving

At Holy Spirit, you have many options for giving.

 

Tributes, Thanks and Prayers

Gifts marked as "in memory of," "in honor of" or "in celebration of" are a thoughtful way to remember a loved one or commemorate friends and family on special occasions.

Guardian Angels

Patients and families who are touched by the exemplary care they received from Holy Spirit staff can express their thanks through the Guardian Angels program. Guardian Angel gifts may be made on behalf of individuals, units, floors, programs, outpatient locations or Centers of Excellence.

Corporate Giving and Sponsorship

We offer many high-visibility, corporate giving opportunities, including capital project naming and event sponsorship.

Annual Golf Tournament

CCorporate sponsorships are available for our Annual Golf Tournament, held at the prestigious Hershey Country Club. Companies may also contribute by providing prizes. Register at www.holyspiritgolf.com.

Matching Gifts

Your employer may have a matching program to increase the impact of your contribution. If so, please send your company’s matching gift form to us along with your gift.

Gifts-In-Kind

These are donations of tangible personal or real property, such as a house, work of art or other items.

Gifts of Stock or Securities

For those who want to save capital gains and get a tax deduction, donating stocks or bonds may be a good option.

Legacy Giving

Many people want to leave a legacy for Holy Spirit but still retain control of their assets and their earnings during their lifetime. Your legacy giving choices include:

  • Bequests
  • Life insurance/retirement plans
  • Gift annuities
  • Custom giving options
 

For more information, call 717-763-2595 or download our legacy giving brochure.

Donor Recognition

All gifts are gratefully received. Donors’ names will be listed in the Annual Report and Share the Spirit, as space permits.

The following levels will be recognized on the Stewardship Wall near the main elevators.

Donor Levels
Founder $5,000 +
Cornerstone $1,000 — $4,999

Gift Designations

Gifts may be designated for programs, departments or centers. Undesignated gifts provide us with the greatest flexibility to address critical or unmet needs.

Charity Care

Many in the community come to Holy Spirit in their time of need. When the cost of medical care exceeds a patient’s ability to pay, your donation can help provide needed health care.

Endowment

The Endowment Fund helps to assure the long-term viability of the Holy Spirit Health System. Earnings are used to underwrite special projects, make capital purchases or invest in outreach and expansion projects.

Naming Gifts

Please contact the Office of Resource Development to discuss how to name a facility space or put the name of a loved one in a public area.
