Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in making a gift to the Oswego Health Foundation. The Foundation is a separate 501(c)3 organization and an integral partner in Oswego Health's mission to provide accessible, quality care and improve the health of the residents of the community. To ensure maximum impact of your gift, we have highlighted some of the ways you can give here:

Cash Gifts

Gifts in the form of cash, check or credit/debit cards are welcome. Checks should be made payable to the Oswego Health Foundation and mailed directly to the Oswego Health Foundation at 110 W. 6th St., Oswego, NY 13126. You can download a donation form here.

You may also make an online gift using a debit or credit card here.

Recurring Gifts

Monthly giving allows you to spread your generosity out all year long. You make a difference a little at a time that adds up to a BIG difference in providing accessible, quality care and improving the health of the residents in our community.

Convenient and easy way to give.

Please call 315-326-3473 or email with your information to set up your monthly giving. Your pre-authorized gift will be withdrawn automatically and securely each month. No more writing checks and mailing them in. Save the envelope and stamp.

Flexible – You decide how much to give each month and on what day of the month. There is no time commitment. You may increase, decrease or cancel your monthly gift at any time.

Cost effective – Less is spent on administrative, paper and mailing costs. You will not receive monthly thank you letters. Instead we will communicate with you personally, by email and as a part of the Healthcare Hero group. At the beginning of the calendar year, you will receive an annual giving statement for the previous year for your tax records.

Steady stream of support – 12 gifts in 12 months. This means your monthly gift will have 12 times the impact. Your commitment to a monthly gift shows you understand the need for ongoing, consistent philanthropic support.

It is so important to maintain access to local healthcare. The people within the organization inspire my giving. Everyone who steps into an Oswego Health facility receives the same exceptional care. Large regional healthcare facilities do not provide the same personalized care as doctors, nurses and staff who live in the community. I make my gift monthly using my credit card because it makes giving so easy. It just happens each month without the need for me to remember to do anything. My support to Oswego Health is just included as part of my monthly budget. It makes supporting such an incredible organization so easy.

Annual Donor Recognition

Partners in Hope

These gifts, mostly, but not limited to Annual Fund gifts, are the foundation of a successful future for Oswego Health. These gifts would also include memorials/honorariums, giving tree gifts, walkway gifts, and special project gifts but do not include special events. These donors are the stepping stones to higher level annual gifts as well as special, major and planned gifts. For recognition purposes Annual Fund or undesignated gifts will give the donor membership in the Partners in Hope at the appropriate giving level. Gifts designated to a specific campaign will have the recognition benefits accruing to that campaign, if applicable, and will also receive the recognition accruing to Partners in Hope in the year the gift is made. Partners in Hope membership runs from January through December.

Recognition Levels:

Century Club Gold $500 - $999

Century Club Silver $250 - $499

Century Club Bronze $100 - $249

Century Club Friend $5 - $99

Bequests and Planned Gifts

There are many types of planned gifts you can make to support Oswego Health—wills and bequests, charitable trusts, life insurance, and more. Please call the Oswego Health Foundation at 315.326.3519 for more information, or see your legal and financial advisers for guidance.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

You can make a gift in memory of someone who has passed or in honor of a living loved one. Memorial gifts are acknowledged to the family as well as to the donor. Tribute gifts are a great way to honor a special occasion. Call the Oswego Health Foundation to see how we can help make your next special occasion—wedding, retirement, birthday or any other—even more special with a commemorative gift to Oswego Health. You can also make the gift online here.

Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts can provide donors with the opportunity to add to their own personal gifts. Does your employer have a matching gift program? Check with your human resources (HR) department to see if your employer matches your gifts.

Does your employer have a volunteer program where they will allow you to designate a gift in your name to an organization in return for volunteering? Check with your HR department today!
