Types of Giving

Philanthropy Overview

Philanthropy at MedStar Harbor Hospital plays a vital role in ensuring MedStar Harbor's patient-centered mission will flourish. Philanthropy supports the Mission Fund - the annual fund that is 100 percent invested back into MedStar Harbor's mission of quality, caring and service. Philanthropic support also plays a role in facility upgrades, the latest in medical services and treatments, technological advances, and community programs that prevent illness while bringing more treatment to those who need it.

MedStar Harbor Hospital Chapel

Chapel plaques are made and ordered in memory of a friend or loved one and are placed inside our beautiful Chapel. They come in three standard sizes of small ($50 donation), medium ($75) and large ($100). All gifts should include complete addresses of both the donor, as well as the loved one or next of kin of the person being memorialized, so that they may receive appropriate acknowledgement of the gift. To order a Chapel plaque to remember a loved one, please call the Philanthropy Department at 410-554-2662.

Memorial/Honor Gifts

Honor gifts are made to celebrate milestones, such as a birth, marriage or special anniversary. Memorial gifts are made in memory of a friend or loved one. All gifts should include complete addresses of both the donor, as well as the honoree or next of kin of the person being memorialized, so that they may receive appropriate acknowledgement of the gift.

Planned Gifts and Estate Planning

Deferred giving enables a donor to maximize the beneficial impact to MedStar Harbor Hospital and minimize or eliminate the capital gains and/or federal estate taxes on assets. Examples of planned gifts include stocks, bonds, life insurance policies, retirement plans (IRAs), and charitable remained trusts, gift annuities, endowments and bequests. Donation can take many forms - you may wish to consult with your accountant or tax attorney as you explore these opportunities.

Combined Federal Campaign

CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with more than 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and internationally to help to raise millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support not-for-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits such as this one. If you have family, friends or neighbors who are eligible to participate in the CFC, our Combined Federal Campaign number is 67715.

To make your gift, please call 410-554-2662.
