Grateful Patient

Charitable gifts may be made in honor of a physician, nurse, or other healthcare staff member who has been a part of a patient’s medical journey.

The caregiver will be notified if a gift is made in their honor. The donor will be recognized unless they wish to remain anonymous per their request.

Grateful Patient funds are used towards “Greatest Need” which are allocated to services and programs that focus on the health and wellness of our community, patients and employees.

Giving Example
A patient received exceptional care and would like to make a gift in honor of their physician, a nurse or medical staff who oversaw their procedure, treatment and stay. Making a gift is their way of saying “Thank you” and recognizes the amazing care that was provided them during a difficult time in their life. A Grateful Patient gift will go to help greatest community need or can be designated to a specific campaign, department or fund.

Cancer Comfort

Support of the Cancer Comfort fund allows gifts to be directed towards specific areas of need where they can make an immediate impact for patients and their families. Funds go towards expenses such as transportation costs, food cards, medication costs and more to help ease some of the financial stress that can be involved with lenthy treatments and cancer diagnosis.

Your support will help ease the financial burden on cancer patients and allow them to focus on their health and healing journey.

The need is urgent and ongoing. Support with a one-time gift or recurring donation.

Giving Example
Becky was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2010 and immediately sought the knowledge and treatments available at the WVU Cancer Institute at Berkeley Medical Center. To ease the financial and emotional burden, Becky received financial assistance which helped cover the cost of transportation to and from treatments. This gave her and her family peace of mind, so she only had to focus on strength and healing. Becky has been cancer free since 2015.

Legacy Giving

One Gift = Multiplied Impact
Leave your legacy with a gift that will impact the future of healthcare for your community. By proactively planning a gift as part of a financial plan YOU can help make a lasting impact for generations to come.
Legacy gifts are made when donors doing gift planning as part of their financial and/or estate plans wish to include support for one of the WVU Hospitals East Foundation.

Legacy giving not only benefits the community and medical centers for the future but also benefits YOU as a donor with contribution benefits including but not limited to additional income, reduced taxes, special recognition and more.

Participation in Legacy Giving is critical in establishing a strong, lasting foundation in which future services, programs and medical advancements can be built on.

Giving Example
The Dorothy A. McCormack Center exists because of the visionary gift of Leonard McCormack who gave in loving memory of his wife, Dorothy. This building now houses the WVU Medicine Cancer Center at Berkeley Medical Center as well as the Heart and Vascular Institute, providing care for thousands of patients annually.

Supporting the Greatest Need

The Greatest Need fund helps to ensure Berkeley and Jefferson Medical Center have the funding to continue to provide vital patient care and experiences as well as advance our community outreach with health and wellness programs, events and services for a better, stronger, healthier community.

Greatest Need funds major advances at both hospitals to ensure that our medical centers have the equipment and resources available for our physicians, staff and care-givers to continue to enhance and expand on the type of care services provided.

These funds provide the most flexibility so funds are allocated to services and programs that are most critical.

Giving Example

Mark wanted to make a gift to support his local community as he has a passion for health and wellness but he was unsure of what specifically to help contribute to. Instead Mark made a gift to the WVU Hospitals East Foundation to benefit “Greatest Need.” A gift to greatest need can help to fund scholarships for local students looking to enter the medical field, or WVU Medicine employees who are looking to further advance in their medical career, provide urgently needed equipment or provide financial assistant for a patient who does not have the financial means to pay for their medication on their own. Donors can be assured that their contributions are going to benefit the health of their community members.
