Creating a Culture of Gratitude                          Make A Gift

As an independent, not-for-profit hospital, Beebe Healthcare could not provide the best possible care without the generous philanthropy from our patients, friends, and area businesses. To help generate this support, Beebe Medical Foundation was established in 1989 with the sole mission to raise philanthropic support for Beebe.

This year is the 25th Anniversary of the Beebe Medical Foundation.  Now a 210 bed hospital and seven locations, your philanthropy has made so much possible.

From your support, $45 million has been raised to fund new and ongoing medical programs, purchase lifesaving medical equipment, and construct and renovate medical facilities. See a sample listing of items funded.  Endowments have been created through planned gifts and generous gifts. 

Many of our gifts come from Grateful Patients. Summer visitors often join our Summer Friends program giving gifts to support the Emergency Department.  Lastly, our local community members generously support us wanting to be sure Beebe is the best it can be.  Gifts can be made through the Annual Fund supporting Beebe day in and day out, through funding a much needed capital item, through endowment and planned gifts. 

Giving to the Beebe Medical Foundation

Beebe Medical Foundation would be most grateful for your unrestricted gift to the Beebe Annual Fund. Your gift would be directed by the Board of Trustees of the Foundation to the most urgent needs of the medical center. You may also direct your gift to any department or program. 

In addition to accepting outright gifts, the staff of Beebe Medical Foundation is prepared to assist you in making a planned gift such as an inclusion in your will, establishing a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, or by establishing an endowment fund named in honor of yourself or a loved one.
