Endowing the Extraordinary

Doctor in surgery

As an independent healthcare system, Doylestown Health is committed to investing in the future of healthcare excellence in our community. One of the most effective ways to do that is with endowments that last in perpetuity, safeguarding and assuring the delivery of award-winning care for generations to come.

An endowment is a fund invested in public and private portfolios, returning a permanent source of income through interest each year. With donations to the Doylestown Hospital Legacy Endowment Fund, Doylestown Health is building a strong financial foundation, and investing directly in the well-being of our community. You can make a gift of any amount to the Legacy Endowment Fund — a priority of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health — or designate your gift to a restricted endowment that supports the hospital service-area most meaningful to you. You can even establish your own endowment with a minimum gift of $100,000.

How to support an endowment:

  • Make an outright gift to the Legacy Endowment Fund online, or by mailing a check payable to “Doylestown Health Foundation” to 595 West State Street, Doylestown, PA 18901
  • Make the Legacy Endowment Fund or a restricted endowment the beneficiary of a planned gift, such as a bequest in your will. To learn more, call 215.345.2802.
  • Designate the Legacy Endowment Fund the beneficiary of a charitable IRA rollover, which allows you to transfer up to $100,000 without recognizing it as income.
  • Take advantage of tax benefits on appreciated stocks by transferring a portion or all of the appreciated securities to the Legacy Endowment Fund.

In times of crisis, it is more important than ever to secure a stable future. Gifts made to the Legacy Endowment Fund will ensure that the hospital has a permanent and sustainable source of income to rely on when emergent situations arise, while also providing critical flexibility to invest in technologies, programs, and services to meet the evolving needs of our patients and the community.

The stability of an endowment also ensures that Doylestown Hospital is here to stay: With your investment in our collective future, we will stand the test of time and the shifting currents of healthcare. Your gift will leave a legacy of lasting impact.
