Showing people how much you care is a rewarding experience. By making a memorial gift, you support friends and family while helping to improve the health of others in our community.
Gifts can be made to:
- Honor the memory of a loved one, friend or co-worker
- Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, a birth or other important milestone
Does one of our caregivers stand out in your memory? Someone who took it upon themselves to make sure that you or a family member received exceptional care? At HealthEast, we call these people Shining Stars and would like to give you this opportunity to recognize them.
A way to say thanks
Recognition from a patient or their family is rewarding and precious. When you give in honor of a Shining Star, you are not only saying thank you to someone who made a difference to you, but your gift also ensures that our hospitals and clinics can continue providing excellent care in the future.
Individual Shining Stars receive a lapel pin and a card acknowledging that a gift has been made to the hospital's Greatest Need Fund in their honor. Teams receive a certificate. Most importantly, they'll know how much the care they provided means to you.
How your gifts are used
Our not-for-profit health care system has a mission of serving our community's health care needs. We reinvest excess revenue to benefit patient care by purchasing high-tech equipment, providing a healing environment for care and offering community health educational workshops. It also means that everyone who comes to our hospital is cared for, regardless of ability to pay. Your gifts help us do all of this and more.
You can make a gift by donating online, or by completing and returning the Shining Star donation form.

Employee Giving Campaign
Our annual HealthEast Foundation Employee Giving Campaign gives employees a chance to make a difference and provides such things as patient equipment, hospice care, artwork to beautify our environment, employee crisis grants and scholarships.
Matching Gift Programs
You can double or sometimes even triple the impact of your gift to HealthEast Foundation! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that encourage employee contributions to qualifying charitable organizations. These programs match employees’ gifts of cash or securities at a 1:1 or other ratio to their favorite charities.
We encourage you to check with your company’s human resources or payroll department to see if matching gift programs are available and a list of qualifying guidelines. If you have questions about HealthEast Foundation’s tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status, please call us at 651-232-4990.
