Annual Giving

Our annual giving program includes contributions given to the Foundation throughout the year. Our program’s purpose is designed to cultivate interest and support for Hansen Family Hospital. Special mailings are developed which focus on different hospital needs and are mailed to the community on a regular basis. Donations are made, in most cases, to support specific programs although we receive many unrestricted gifts. Individuals also make donations in “memory of” or “in honor of” significant individuals in their lives. This program allows donors to get involved in our organization by supporting their personal interests and needs.

Planned Giving

This program provides opportunities for individuals with estate plans and financial circumstances that would be enhanced by the tax savings of planned gifts. Apart from the tax benefits, these individuals primarily want to advance the work of the Foundation. Individuals make contributions under planned giving by naming the Hansen Family Hospital Foundation in a bequest through a will; as beneficiary of an insurance policy or annuity; as a recipient of appreciated property or securities, or as the beneficiary of other financial arrangements that may relieve the donor of tax responsibilities. There are planned giving opportunities that can also assure lifetime income while providing the donor with a tax deduction.

Special Events

The Foundation hosts various special fund-raising events throughout the year. The Foundation is also the recipient of proceeds raised through a Golf Tournament each summer. Proceeds from these activities go to the Foundation for the benefit of the Hansen Family Hospital's programs and services.

Capital Campaign

The Foundation sponsored a capital campaign during 2011-2012. The capital campaign was part of a three-way financial partnership with Hardin County and the City of Iowa Falls to build a new hospital. This special effort raised $7 million. View a list of our community partners here.
