We understand that people have many reasons for contributing. You may have experienced North Valley Hospital firsthand or you may simply be interested in the well-being of our community’s citizens. Gifts are used to advance the mission of North Valley Hospital, help purchase equipment, enhance facilities, expand services, fund staff education and reach out to meet the health care needs of our communities.
One-Time, Monthly Recurring or Annual Gifts
Gifts by currency, credit card or personal check immediately benefit North Valley Hospital and are the easiest and most direct way to give. Gifts of any frequency and any amount are highly appreciated. By selecting to make a monthly, quarterly or annually recurring gift on your credit card, you can ensure your giving continues at an even pace and you can benefit from earning miles or points on your credit card rewards program!

While annual donations support immediate needs, donations to the endowment of the North Valley Hospital Foundation ensure that gifts will continue giving in perpetuity. Funds contributed to the endowments are held in a fund at the Whitefish Community Foundation
and invested in a diversified portfolio of financial instruments designed to maximize growth while preserving principal value. Only a portion of the earnings from the investment of dollars contributed are used to fund immediate projects, allowing the donation to have a greater impact over a long period of time than if it were spent all at once. Donations made to endowment funds may be eligible for a tax credit from the state of Montana (see below).
Bequests or Estate Gifts
Careful estate planning yields special financial advantages for donors and their heirs while enabling them to support the important work of the North Valley Hospital Foundation in a significant and lasting way.

Montana Endowment Tax Credit
The Montana Endowment Tax Credit provides an extraordinary opportunity to reduce your Montana taxes by directing funds to an endowment at the Whitefish Community Foundation on behalf of the North Valley Hospital Endowment Fund. Currently, the tax credit provides one of the most philanthropic opportunities for you to receive state tax benefits, while making a significant charitable contribution. You may also receive a federal income tax deduction for your gift, a credit on your Montana state income taxes and capital gains tax savings if appreciated assets are given. Funding for the future through endowment giving means your gift is held and invested in perpetuity and only investment income is used for accomplishing the purpose of your gift.
