Your Gift is Good for Life!

Your gift will make a lasting impact and improve the lives of residents served by the California Hospital Medical Center.  The generosity and vision of our donors generate the resources we need to provide highest quality medical care to all in need, regardless of their ability to pay.

Outright Gifts

Cash, Check, or Credit card

Cash and checks can be made out to California Hospital Medical Center Foundation and mailed to 1401 S. Grand Avenue. Los Angeles, CA, 90015. Credit card gifts can be made online or phoned in at 213-742-5867.

Stocks and Bonds

Gifts of marketable securities--particularly long-term, highly appreciated securities--can provide you with substantial tax benefits, including a charitable tax deduction and avoidance of capital gains tax.

Real Estate and Tangible Personal Property

Long-term, appreciated real estate can provide an excellent vehicle for making a substantial donation to California Hospital Medical Center Foundation. Potential benefits include avoidance of capital gains tax and a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value of the contributed property. As a result, many donors are able to make a larger donation than would have been possible if the gift were made with cash.

We also accept gifts of tangible personal property including artwork, antiques, and jewelry.

 

Restricted Gifts

Many of our donors wish to designated their gift towards a specific program or need that is particularly close to their hearts. California Hospital Medical Center Foundation accepts gifts that are earmarked for any of a wide range of programs and services, including:

  • Donald P. Loker Cancer Center
  • Women's and Children's Services
  • Leavey Trauma Center
  • J. Thomas McCarthy Center for Emergency Services
  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • Hope Street Margolis Family Center

Donors may also choose to restrict their gifts in support of the hospital's major capital projects such as building and renovations or equipment acquisition.

Unrestricted Gifts

When you make an unrestricted gift to California Hospital Medical Center Foundation, you can rest assured that it will be used with the utmost care to support the hospital's areas of greatest need. This type of gift is especially appreciated, because it allows us the flexibility to respond quickly and effectively to operational and programmatic needs and opportunities.
