Major Gifts Contact us to share your personal vision for our community's health. When you make a gift of $10,000 or more, we consider it a major gift and you a major donor. You can count on your major gift being used as you intend and toward the fulfillment of Concord Hospital's mission. Additionally, you will be recognized for your support in the way you prefer and told how your support achieves its purpose. Major gifts are often the result of a match between a passion of yours and a priority of ours. The assets you use to make your major gift may vary. You can use appreciated stock, a whole-life insurance policy, an unexpected windfall or a year-end bonus. The timing of your major gift may also vary. You might make the full gift amount today, give parts of it over a number of years or combine it with a future gift from your estate or trust. The following are some examples of what major gifts can support: A new patient care program we both know is essential to meeting a community need; An existing center, department program or position you would like to see strengthened; A new piece of medical equipment we both would like to see made available for patients; An early detection, screening or prevention program you have envisioned and we know we want to establish.
