Please note:

As our hospital’s needs change significantly from year to year and medical advances impact our future needs, it is appreciated if an “undesignated” gift can be made. If restrictions are placed on your gift, they should be made generally and with some flexibility or an “out” clause, should the need no longer exist at the time of your death (please see option No. 3 as an example of this flexibility).

Many thanks for your support! On behalf of the patients and families who will benefit from your generosity, please accept our sincere gratitude.
