Types of Gifts

HealthEast Foundation recognizes that our donors are unique individuals and therefore offer you several different ways you can make your gift. Please contact us at 651-232-4990 if the opportunities offered below do not fit your needs.


Memorial Gifts

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

Shining Stars

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.

Give now

You can make a gift by donating online, or by completing and returning the Shining Star donation form.

Festival of Trees

HealthEast Foundation recently made the decision to retire Festival of Trees, its annual fundraising gala. The 2017 event was our last. We are grateful for the generosity that made this tradition so successful for many years—from our many donors, corporate sponsors and volunteers.

As Fairview and HealthEast come together, the foundations are assessing fundraising approach and repositioning event strategy. The possibilities of having an even greater impact to health in our state and region is fueling our excitement and energy for what comes next. Watch for information coming soon on new opportunities to engage with the foundations in driving a healthier future.

Workplace Giving

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.
