Ways to Give

Gifts of Cash may be made to the Foundation by cash, check or credit card. Checks should be made payable to Eastern Long Island Hospital Foundation and mailed to 201 Manor Place, Greenport, NY 11944, while credit card contributions can be made by calling the Foundation Office at 631.477.5164 or on our website. VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted. Cash should be hand delivered to the Foundation Office at 222 Manor Place, located in the building across the street from the hospital, second door from the left.

Gifts of Securities may be reassigned directly to ELIHF or they may be transferred through your broker. Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds may be an excellent choice for funding charitable gifts and may offer significant tax benefits for the donor without impacting cash flow. Please call 631.477.5164 for transfer instructions. 

Pledges can be paid over a period of time. 

Matching Gifts enable donors to double or even triple their contributions. Many employers offer opportunities to match charitable gifts of their employees and retirees, including spouses. Matching gift forms, which are usually available from a business or organization’s Human Resources Department, should be completed by the donor and mailed to the ELIH Foundation Office at 201 manor Place, Greenport, NY 11944.

Gifts in Memory or in Honor of loved ones, family members or friends are a special way to acknowledge someone in your life while making a difference. Gifts may be made in remembrance of loved ones or friends, or to recognize a special occasion, i.e. the outstanding care provided by a physician or nurse, a birthday, an anniversary or a holiday. When the Foundation receives such gifts, a special letter of recognition is sent to the person or family of the donor’s choosing. The donor will also receive a letter acknowledging the tax-deductible contribution.

The Breakwater Club was established to honor especially generous donors who make a gift of $2,500 annually for five years. Membership benefits include exclusive recognition and event reservations. For more information, please call the ELIH Foundation Office at 631.477.5164.

Planned Giving allows donors to give a bequest gift, beneficiary designation, charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, gifts of real estate or a gift of retained life estate. For more information or to inform us of your planned gift, please contact the ELIH Foundation Office at 631.477.5164.
