Foundation & Corporate Grants

We welcome the opportunity to work with foundations and corporations on philanthropic grants to the Platte Valley Medical Center Foundation.

Stocks & Appreciated Securities

One way to boost your charitable contributions is to give shares of appreciated stock instead of cash.

They are easily valued without an appraisal, and easy to transfer. Donating appreciated securities before they are sold typically results in a tax advantage. A tax deduction is normally allowed based on the market value at the time of the gift. Since the deduction is based on current value, rather than cost, no tax is paid on the appreciation.

Tribute Gifts

We all know someone special – someone we love, admire and respect. Relationships like these are priceless.

Tribute gifts are given in honor or memory of a special person–perhaps a caregiver, family member, or friend. They are given in thoughtful remembrance of a life, in recognition of a special occasion, or in appreciation of service. These tributes serve as a permanent expression of love, honor and recognition. You can designate that you are providing a donation in tribute/memory of someone on the Online Donation Form or when you contact us by phone or mail.


You have the power to help safeguard the future of Platte Valley Medical Center. How? By making an endowed gift. Your gift is an investment in our future, helping us grow and thrive for years to come.

Real Estate

The Platte Valley Medical Center Foundation accepts gifts of real estate, including houses, condominiums, commercial properties, farm land, rental property, and undeveloped land after a thorough review of the property and its potential usage by the Foundation. Prior to the acceptance of any parcel of real property, as a minimum, a Phase 1 environmental assessment of the potential environmental risks will be conducted. For all gifts of real estate, the Gift Acceptance Committee will review the results of such assessment and recommend to the appropriate administrators and Board Committees whether the gift should be accepted.

Donor Recognition

We are proud to honor our partners in philanthropy by providing prominent and enduring recognition for donors whose significant contributions shape the growth and continued support for Platte Valley Medical Center.

The Foundation endeavors to foster a warm, appreciative donor community and is committed to working with its donors to achieve their philanthropic goals. We recognize donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations in the following manner:

  • Charitable tax receipt
  • Listing on the Hospital’s Donor Wall
  • Tour of the program area supported
  • VIP celebrations
  • Recognition plaques in the Healing Art Program

If you have a special request, or would like to be recognized in another way, please contact our Executive Director, Carolyn Jannsen, at 303-498-3630.
