Remember AVMC with Year-End Giving

  • Posted On:

At this time of year, when many local residents are giving serious thought to year-end contributions, the Antelope Valley Medical Center Foundation (AVHF) wants to remind people that a charitable gift to AVHF will help save lives, treat illness, bring newborns into the world and make the Antelope Valley a better place to work, live and raise a family.

"We hope you will consider including AVHF in your year-end giving plans," said Johnny Zamrzla, chair of the Antelope Valley Medical Center Foundation Board of Directors. "Every gift matters, big or small, for when combined they allow us to not only address the hospital’s current needs, but better position the hospital for long-term growth and sustainability. Supporting Antelope Valley Medical Center is a good investment, now and for the future."

Zamrzla recognizes that different people may give to the hospital for different reasons. Some give because they believe in the hospital’s overriding mission and in its unique position as the community’s only full service acute-care hospital. For others, the hospital carries a special, personal meaning because of a family experience that has strengthened their bond and appreciation for the institution. Others want to leave a lasting legacy in the community while some simply want to feel good about making a difference.

"No matter the reason for giving, it is the ongoing support of our community that makes it possible for Antelope Valley Medical Center to continue to provide the exceptional clinical care that our community has counted on for more than 60 years," he said.

In addition to traditional monetary donations, the hospital welcomes gifts of real estate, life insurance, stocks, mutual funds, endowment gifts, life income gifts, charitable IRA gifts, and wills or living trusts.
