When it comes to charitable giving, most people are surprised to find there are as many ways to contribute as there are reasons to do so.
Chilton Medical Center Foundation offers a flexible philanthropic program that welcomes a myriad of personalized donations, from commemorative gifts that honor a loved one or caregiver, to endowments that create an inspiring family legacy. We encourage you to give in a way that supports your charitable goals as well as the programs that are meaningful to you, whether it's a donation to our Mother Baby Center or Special Care Nursery that nursed your newborn to good health, or perhaps our Cardiovascular Interventional Lab because a loved one suffers from heart disease.

Here are just a few ways you can express your support for Chilton:
- President's Club
Members donate $1,000 or more annually while enjoying an array of privileges, such as an invitation to the fall President's Club Reception with Chilton Medical Center President Deborah K. Zastocki, DNP, RN, and other exclusive events, along with private hospital tours and special amenities if admitted to Chilton. These valued philanthropic stewards rally support for the hospital's growth, modernization and technological innovation, keeping Chilton on the leading edge of health care.
- Commemorative Gifts
Searching for a special way to honor the memory of a loved one, a wedding anniversary, graduation or other special occasion? Perhaps you wish to recognize a caregiver who touched your heart during a recent stay at Chilton, or a doctor who saved your life. Our Commemorative Gift Program offers the opportunity to thoughtfully express your affection or gratitude while also enhancing the care Chilton provides to patients and the community.

You can even honor the birth of your new baby or celebrate your child's birthday with a gift to our Mother Baby Center. Gifts of $1,000 or more are recognized with a special plaque on the Mother Baby Center Donor Wall located on the hospital's second floor.
- New Century Society/ Planned Giving
While some donations address the needs of today, others look toward the promise of tomorrow. Chilton's New Century Society, which was established in 1995, honors individuals who support our hospital's future through estate planning, such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, gifts of life insurance and other vehicles. Planned gifts are often structured in partnership with a financial advisor to optimize tax and income benefits for the donor and/or designated beneficiaries as well as the charitable organization. Over the past 13 years, more than $6 million has been donated to Chilton through bequests and gift annuities.
