Other Opportunities For Giving

There are as many giving opportunities for the Mackinac Straits Health Foundation as there are areas of interest for our friends. If you or your family has been touched by a particular disease, you may choose to support the development of that area of our new facility or to remember a family member with a donation specified for use in supporting that area of the facility. Gifts can be designated for a specific area of the health care complex or for general use. The MSH Foundation welcomes gifts of all sizes and also welcomes gifts other than cash. Donations to the facility can be paid over time, between three to five years depending on the amount of the contribution. If you are interested in making a bequest to the hospital in your will or setting up another form of planned giving, please contact our fundraising co-chairs to help make these arrangements. Unless you request anonymity, we will acknowledge your gift accordingly.
