How You Can Help

Last Updated 8/27/2014 11:33:28 AM


Make a Donation

You may make an unrestricted gift to the El Camino Fund that allows the Foundation to direct your donation where the need is greatest across the El Camino Hospital enterprise or you may allocate your gift to a specific program such as Cancer Center, Mental Health Services, Women’s Health and Hospital or South Asian Heart Center. If desired, your donation may be made in honor or in memory of someone special. An acknowledgement will be sent to the person you specify.

Donate now online using our secure server service provided by Blackbaud.

If you prefer to write a check, please make it payable to El Camino Hospital Foundation and send it to:

El Camino Hospital Foundation
2500 Grant Road PAR 116
Mountain View, CA 94040

To make a donation over the telephone, please call 650-940-7154. The Foundation accepts MasterCard, Visa and American Express.

El Camino Hospital is a non-profit organization, and your gift is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. El Camino Hospital Foundation is a separately incorporated 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our Internal Revenue Service tax identification number is 94-2823235.

Your donation to the Foundation is greatly appreciated. It will be acknowledged with a thank you note and a receipt that can be used for tax purposes at the end of the year. Donors who cumulatively give $1,000 or more are eligible to become members of our Community of Caring and will be listed on a donor board that is prominently displayed in the hospital.

The El Camino Fund

Unrestricted gifts to the El Camino Fund allow El Camino Hospital to innovate and respond nimbly to emerging opportunities.  They enable the hospital to be among the first to invest in leading edge technologies and medical advances, and to implement newly developing best practices in health care.  They provide the resources that enhance patient care in ways that might otherwise go unmet and they position the hospital to meet the evolving needs of a patient population that is growing increasingly diverse.  By permitting El Camino Hospital to allocate your gift where the need is greatest - whether to physically improve a campus, purchase state-of-the-art equipment, or create a pioneering health care program - you are ensuring El Camino Hospital has the resources it needs to best serve our community.  Be assured your donation will be allocated carefully and thoughtfully.  Each distribution is made in support of the hospital's strategic priorities, in consultation with hospital leadership and the Foundation Board of Directors, after the project proposal has undergone a rigorous review. 

Volunteer

If you would like to work on our next event or learn about other volunteer opportunities, please contact Kirsten Krimsley at 650-940-7154 or foundation@elcaminohospital.org.

Hope to Health (H2H) offers a volunteer and philanthropic opportunity for women to support El Camino Hospital. There are two chapters, one in Mountain View and one in Los Gatos. Members are women who care about women’s health issues and believe in the power of philanthropy. They meet regularly to discuss those concerns and determine how their charitable giving can best improve the health of women in their communities through programs on their chapter’s hospital campus. To date the dollars they have raise have helped, among other things, to launch MOMS (an outpatient therapy program for women suffering from postpartum depression), ASPIRE (an outpatient therapy program aimed at preventing teen suicide), underwrite gynecological services for underprivileged women, and to support pilot programs to improve women’s cardiovascular health. For more information, please contact Lea Morgan at 650-940-7154 or email foundation@elcaminohospital.org.

Legacy Donations

Legacy gifts offer a way to endow the future of El Camino Hospital. These gifts include bequests in a will or living trust, life insurance, pension plan, financial accounts, charitable gift annuities, and charitable trusts. If you would like to learn more about planned giving opportunities, please contact Lindsay Ehrman 650-940-7154 or by email at foundation@elcaminohospital.org.

Pillars of the Community

Donors who participate in the development of the Mountain View Hospital campus by contributing $5,000 or more can become Pillars of the Community. Their names will be inscribed on beautiful columns in the main courtyard, a peaceful green space where visitors can walk and find respite from the anxieties of the hospital environment. These donations can be made in honor or in memory of someone special. Each inscription is limited to 4 lines, 25 characters per line.
